These easy fish tacos are a great go-to weeknight meal for the family. They pack just the right amount of spice, with zesty lime, creamy avocado, and crunchy cabbage. Drizzled with Litehouse® Avocado Ranch Dressing, these tacos are the full package. Plus, they come together in under 40 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt 
  • 1½ lbs cod or other flaky white fish, cut into fillets about 3 inches long
  • 2 limes, 1 cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 6 small red radishes, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup Litehouse® Avocado Ranch Dressing
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Combine the paprika, cumin, oregano, garlic powder and salt in a small bowl. Place the fish in a shallow baking dish, cover with the juice from one lime and the spice mixture. Let marinate for 15 minutes, rotating to ensure even coating. 
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet. When the oil is hot, add the fish. Cook until opaque and flakey, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the fish from the heat and let it rest on a plate for 5 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, for soft tacos, wrap your tortillas in a slightly damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds to a minute, until warm and pliable. For crunchy tacos, heat a second skillet over medium-high heat and add the tortillas. Cook until lightly browned, about 30 seconds to 1 minute per side. It’s best to use tongs to flip the tortillas in a pan. 
  4. Assemble your tacos by dividing the fish between the warmed tortillas, topping with red cabbage and sliced radishes. Drizzle with Litehouse® Avocado Ranch Dressing and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
