Best Easy Fish Tacos
The good news is this: even if it’s not summer, even if you live far away from any sort of ocean, even if you don’t really know anything about cooking… you can make EXTREMELY GOOD fish tacos at home.
Right here, right now, tonight. It’s on.
We love, love, love this recipe.
There is no love like the love I have for good fish tacos. And with these, you’re going to get that fish nice and tender and flaky and full of spicy flavor, and then you’re going to tuck it into little flour tortillas and top it with garlic lime slaw (omg), avocado, cilantro, and whatever else your fish taco heart desires.
The textures, the colors, the satisfying and crunchy I-might-be-on-vacation vibe? It’s all there.
Here’s How to Make the Best Easy Fish Tacos:
Step 1: Whisk up a sauce. Pour it over your fish.
Step 2: Bake your fish. Flake it right in the sauce.
Step 3: Make your dressing and pour it on the cabbage. Boom. Slaw.
Step 4: Taco assembly line… annnnd go.
We have plenty of other methods of making fish tacos on Pinch of Yum but these are hands-down the best easy fish tacos. They are just right for the Everyperson, which is why I love them and make them all the time.

TYPES OF FISH TO USE IN TACOS
We’re using cod for this recipe, but any white fish will do. You could also use:
- Mahi mahi (yum!)
And if you you’re not a big fan of the above, shrimp is always an option! In that case, these Spicy Shrimp Tacos will be your best friend.
What to Serve with Fish Tacos
Slaw, avocado, cilantro, repeat!
But also: you could serve these tacos with some yummy Mexican rice, a simple salad tossed with cilantro vinaigrette, or a Mexican street corn salad. And maybe some margaritas for good measure? Definitely margaritas.
More avocado, more garlic lime slaw, and more of that yummy, buttery, spicy, seriously-easy-to-make fish, please. MORE.
The best easy fish tacos are yours for the taking!
