  • Category: fish and seafood


for the fish:

  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • Juice of one lime
  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1 1/2 pounds firm fleshed fish such as mahi, cod, halibut
  • 1 cup Beth Blends flour blend
  • tortillas and sliced avocado, for serving

for the slaw:

  • 1/2 head green or purple cabbage, shredded
  • 1 handful cilantro leaves and stems, chopped
  • juice of one lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander (optional)
  • pinch salt

for the mango salsa:

  • 2 cups diced mango (thawed from frozen)
  • 1/2 large shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds and membrane removed if preferred, roughly chopped (optional)
  • small handful cilantro leaves and stems
  • juice of one lime
  • pinch salt


for the fish:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the marinade ingredients (coconut milk, lime juice, garlic, salt, onion powder, and oregano.
  2. Slice the fish into strips about 1-inch wide and add to the bowl. Set aside while you prep the rest of the tacos, or around 30 minutes.
  3. After the fish has marinaded, set up a dredging station – a wide shallow bowl or plate with the flour, and an empty plate to place the dredged fish. Pull the fish out of the marinade, allowing the excess to drip off and roll in the flour.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a good layer of oil. Once it’s shimmering, add the fish and cook for a minute or two on each side, or until browned on all sides and cooked through. Remove to a wire rack-lined baking sheet or several layers of paper towels.
  5. Assemble tacos by placing a couple pieces of the fish on a warmed tortilla and top with slaw, salsa, and sliced avocado

for the slaw:

1. In a medium bowl, toss together all the ingredients.

for the salsa:

1. For chunky salsa: pulse in a food processor. For puréed salsa: blender in a blender or with a stick blender
