Mexican Fish Tacos is an easy recipe full of flavor. This recipe is best paired with Mexican Salsa and Guacamolé.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10
Cooking time: less than 5 mins


1 1/2 lb / 750g red snapper or other firm white-fleshed fish fillets
1/2 teaspoon of salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
3/4 cup / 4 oz / 125g all-purpose flour (plain)
1/4 cup / 2 oz / 60 ml corn or safflower oil
2 cups / 16 fl oz / 500 ml Fresh Mexican Salsa (see recipe)
10 Corn tortillas, homemade or purchased, warmed
1 cup / 3 oz / 90 g chopped cabbage, thinly sliced
2 limes quartered


  1. Season both sides of the fish fillet with salt and pepper. Add flour on to a plate and place the fish fillets making sure to evenly coat both sides. Shake the excess flour off.
  2. Add the oil on to a frying pan. Set the burner to medium-high heat waiting until the oil is hot. Once the oil is hot, place the fish fillets in the frying pan flipping once until fish is golden on both sides.
  3. Transfer the fish fillets on absorbent paper (paper towel) to drain briefly. While the fish is still hot shred with a fork and mix in with some fresh Mexican salsa.
  4. Add the mixture in a warm corn tortilla and add some cabbage. Sprinkle some lime. Guacamole is recommended for this recipe. Enjoy!
