Did Someone Say Tacos?!

Jump to recipe

Cinco de Mayo is around the corner so why not make some tacos this week! These Fish Tacos with Cumin-Lime Slaw are a dish I made for the first time over a year ago. When I tried them I was amazed at how fresh and delicious these tiny tacos were. Let’s be honest, I really haven’t come across a rendition of tacos that I didn’t like. I could probably eat tacos every day, so sharing this recipe back was a must because I think many of you out there reading this feel the same way I do.

There’s a lot of flexibility with these fish tacos outside of the toppings. When it comes to the seasoning of the fish, or how robust you want the cumin-lime slaw to taste- it’s really up to you! I’m a fan of highly seasoned foods so I ramped up the lime and cumin flavors in the slaw. I’m not a huge fan of mayonnaise so making the slaw more flavorful helps me get over that. The tilapia can either be lightly seasoned with a touch of chili powder or you can ramp it up like I do and rub those fillets down with all of the powder! It really gives your tacos a kick!

Originally this recipe called for chopping up your own cabbage and carrots. While I think this is an awesome idea, for me it just wasn’t ideal. I decided to build a shortcut for the coleslaw. I used the prepared coleslaw in a bag. It contained all the ingredients I needed with the exception of the green onion, which was super easy to add. If you have the time to chop up some cabbage- go for it. I’m just a fan of making my meals efficient and easy to suit my lifestyle. This substitution made this meal super simple and perfect for a busy work night! These tasty tacos tickled my tastebuds so I know they will do the same for you!
