Low Fat Fish Tacos

User Rating 4 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


Fish Tacos
Halibut and cod work especially well with these low fat fish tacos. Bake, broil or grill the fish after briefly marinating it, and serve with your choice of low fat or fat free garnishes on top of warm corn tortillas.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 pound firm white fish fillets such as halibut or cod
  • 8 corn tortillas


In a small bowl, combine lime juice, cumin, olive oil and cilantro. Place fish in a glass baking dish or in a resealable plastic bag. Add marinade. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Coat a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place marinated fish on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Alternatively, broil or grill fish, allowing 10 minutes per inch of thickness.

Warm corn tortillas according to instructions on package.

When fish is cooked, cut into strips or chunks and divide among corn tortillas. Add shredded cabbage, low fat or fat free sour cream and salsa for garnish.

little twist, Member RubinSmith

I followed the recipe for the fish, but used it in enchilada's. We used whole wheat tortilla's and green enchilada sauce, mexican five cheese mix and they were wonderful. Almost better left over than the first time.
