Fish Tacos:⁣

  • 1 lb cod or tilapia filets⁣
  • 3 oz tortilla chips crushed to make 1 cup crumbs⁣
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning ⁣
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil⁣
  • 12 corn tortillas ⁣

Spicy Avocado Crema:⁣

  • 2 avocados pitted and diced ⁣
  • ½ cup sour cream⁣
  • ½ cup avocado mayonnaise ⁣
  • Juice of 1 lime⁣
  • Dash of kosher salt and pepper⁣
  • 1 jalapeno roughly chopped, seeds removed if desired for less heat⁣


  • Red cabbage shredded ⁣
  • Cotija cheese crumbled⁣
  • Cilantro roughly chopped ⁣
  • Scallions diced⁣
  • Sriracha aioli or hot sauce ⁣


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine taco seasoning and tortilla crumbs in a shallow bowl and prepare a baking sheet by spraying with non stick cooking spray. ⁣
  • Pat cod pieces dry with paper towels. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, tossing them gently with hands or a spatula to coat evenly. Working in batches, place a few pieces of cod into the bowl with tortilla chip crumbs and press crumbs into fish to form a coating all around each piece. ⁣
  • Place coated fish pieces in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and lightly spray each piece with cooking spray. Bake for 5-10 minutes, until pieces are cooked through and light golden brown. ⁣
  • While fish is cooking, combine all ingredients for avocado cream in food processor. Blend until smooth. Set aside.⁣
  • Once fish is done cooking, break up fish with spatula into smaller pieces. It should easily crumble.⁣
  • Place fish and toppings in bowls and allow everyone to build a taco to their liking! If desired, serve with a side of Spanish rice or beans.⁣
