This was excellent!! I made very minor changes: cooked the red cabbage in a pan for about 5 min, just to soften slightly. Used fat-free sour cream. Also, added cilantro to the slaw and as a garnish on top. I don't believe the recipe instructions included what to do with the cilantro. This was the perfect dinner for a hot day!!Read More

I make fish tacos all of the time with tilapia sprinkled with a Louisanna style rub! My husband loves a little kick so I am anxious to try this recipe! I would use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream though.
These were excellent! Healthy and different. They cooked much faster for me.
My family loves this recipe! We are not big fish eaters usually, but this dish has become a regular in our house. I don't like having to deal with the fresh jalapeno, so I subed for the jarred sliced kind. I just added the juice to the oil and it tasted great without too much heat. I also chopped some of the jalapenos up and added them to my sour cream mixture along with a couple of tablespoons of the jalapeno juice. I like to go ahead and add the cilantro directly to mixture too. Instead of cabbage I chop up romaine and add on top of the sour cream sauce and fish :)This recipe is also great with pacific snapper!
Soooo good and easy!!!! I added cilantro and jicama to the slaw and it was delicious! I served this to my family with black beans and Mexican rice on the side. Super filling and yummy dinner!
I made this with shrimp instead of fish because that's what everyone in my family likes... I used Blackened Seasoning on the shrimp when I sauteed it, the rest of the recipe was the same...loved it! My son who is home from college saw me making the sour cream/lime dressing and said the restaurant where he works (in Lubbock, TX) makes this to serve on enchiladas. It was great on the slaw and as a topping for the tacos. Will definitely try this with Tilapia too. Great recipe!
I made these even healthier since we had the gas grill going with some corn cobs and grilled the fish. Just put the slices on an oiled foil lined cookie sheet and drizzled some fresh lime and creole seasoning. They cooked up to a perfect flakiness at 425 degrees in only ten minutes. The sauce just needed more flavor, was very limey tasting, and I had some chipotle peppers in the fridge, so I chopped one and put it in the sauce that went on the slaw, boy was that ever good, but not too spicy. I made my slaw up early in the day and gave it time to marinate. I did use the plain sauce as a topping without the chipotle in it. These were so very good and really easy to make and. Served with some juicy Florida corn on the cob.
Pretty much stuck to the plan, with one exception. We used white corn tortillas instead of flour. We are watching calories, and every little bit helps. Great recipe, easy to put together, and tasted great. Thanx for posting this.
This was amazing! I was somewhat worried if I would like the flavors together, but everything came out great. The jalapeno really made it over the top yummy. I will make this again soon! Thanks for sharing!
These were very simple and quite delish! I really only made a couple of simple changes. Because my family likes sour cream, I doubled that. Additionally I fried the jalapeno and fish together, not discarding anything when it was done. It added a perfect flavor for us.
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes for a weeknight meal. Easy to make and really, really tasty! I bake the tilapia at 350º and with olive oil spray and add a little lime juice and zest. The fish comes out in about 8 minutes perfectly cooked. I also tried shredded green cabbage instead of red, and really liked the mild flavor of the slaw. I also added cilantro to the mix and as a garnish. The whole family loves these!
These were so easy to make and SO delicious! Definitely making again.
This was fantastic! I accidentally added the cilantro to the cabbage slaw but that turned out to be a good accident. And I used breaded tilapia that I baked, so I can't review on that aspect. But the cabbage slaw and the remaining mixture, I believe are what pulled it all together. Will definitely use this again. It was a hit all around the table.
This has quickly become one of my favorite recipes! If you have time to let the cabbage sour cream mixture set in the fridge for a while it's even better.
I've never made fish tacos before and this recipe was incredible! I thought it'd be good but the slaw was so flavorful and it has just the right amount of bite. I fried up cod and it came out perfect. Went over so well it'll definitely be a staple meal here, thank you!
Tilapia was on sale, so I tried these tacos. They were delicious, quick, and easy. I added avocado (also on sale!) and shredded Mexican cheese as toppers and we loved them.
This was really good! Like other users, I cooked the red cabbage in a pan for a couple of minutes to soften slightly, used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and added cilantro to the slaw.
Good recipe, but we had problems getting our fish "golden brown." The fish cooked in the given amount of time and flaked nicely, but did not turn golden brown or crisp up like we were anticipating. Since it wasn't crisp, it got a little lost in the cabbage mix when we made the tacos. Overall great taste, and we will try it again with flour or breading on the fish to get it crispy. One other note - we used green cabbage instead of red and it tasted good, just make sure to cut the cabbage into very thin strips. Finally, the recipe doesn't say what to do with the cilantro, so we used it as a garnish.
I love it! I wonder why some fish taco recipes called for beer. That is a biiiiig no-no for me. No way!!!
The fish was delish! I doubled the slaw and glad I did. We liked it so much that we had it the next night as a side. The only change was greek yogurt for the sour cream per another review. Light and yummy.
Very easy and quick!! I would put a little less green onions they are always so strong but otherwise delicious!!
Loved this!! We are not huge fish lovers, but we are trying to improve our diet. I made these and my family loved them!! Easy and scrumptious!
Love Love Love; My only change was using my homemade picante sauce tossed into the shredded red cabbage. No offense to the recipe, I'm just lazy. LOL
Awesome!! I made my sauce and then threw in all the cabbage, onions and cilantro. I didn't save any as a reserve. Turned out great. Will make again. Nice flavor.
Simple tasty and pretty healthy if you get low fat tortillas. Between the two of us we pretty much ate a whole raw cabbage in one sitting. I pan fried some mahi mahi in light oil, added extra jalapenos for kick.
My wife made this for dinner tonight, I was a little skeptical because I don't like slaw mixes at all, but it came out very good. This is definitely going to stay in the recipe box for our family.
Absolutely fabulous! Next time I will put more pieces of jalapeño in with the fish when I sauté them, because they were awesome to eat (not too spicy at all). This recipe is a keeper!
I made this for a healthy dinner choice it was really good and my husband loved it, next time I make it I might cook the cabbage a little and cook the fish before I cut it up to make it more flaky but the recipe was wonderful and we added some mango salsa on top.
I have to give this three stars because the fish really did not have any flavor, only the slaw did. The slaw was nice, you could really taste the different flavors. I will probably just use the slaw as a side for our next meal.
This did not come out well at all. I made it exactly as per the ingredients/instructions. The sour taste was too overwhelming and the cabbage was too hard and didn't go well with the fish. Won't be making this again.
This was so good! I took the leftovers to work and my coworker raved! I followed the directions pretty accurately. Added avocado and shredded cheese at the end. I could eat the slaw just by itself. Yummy!
Delicious! substituted sour cream with yogurt, used parsley instead of cilantro.
AWESOME! I still can't believe how QUICK and EASY this was to put together and the flavors were truly delicious. I am definitely going to add this to my arsenal of speedy week-night dinners; there's nothing to it! My husband raved throughout the meal about how much he was enjoying it. I served mine with black beans, also. Thanks so much!
They were tasty. Would have preferred a tangy sauce.
The fish was a little spicy, so for my kids I did half the batch infusing the oil with garlic instead of jalapeño. It was also very good.
Great! I used regular cabbage and skipped the extra sour cream topping.
This is fast and tasty. We doubted the slaw and were impressed by the combination of tastes. Very very good!
YUM, YUM, YUM!!!! This was perfect and just what we were looking for. It was so easy that my husband made it (for the most part). Thank you!
Very good and easy. I used canned green chilies, and maybe that was a mistake, because I thought it could have been a bit spicier.
This recipe is so tasty! I omitted jalapeno pepper because i don't like any kind of spiciness and switched the red cabbage for shredded iceberg lettuce. I'm so happy i found this recipe :)
These were great! I used fresh cod and blackened it. Mixed some cilantro in the slaw too and used corn tortillas. Also chilled the slaw for a bit while cooking the fish. Next time I'll make extra sauce sauce for the topping. Delicious!!
My fiance and I love this recipe. We used regular sour cream and also tripled the sauce. We also halved the cilantro.
Great and simple recipe that you can whip together super fast. Made this for my wife last night and we both loved it! Added some avocado as a topping on top and it was cash money.
This was definitely a winner! Raves by all even the non-fish eaters. Put different toppings on the table and people helped themselves. Added a little chile into the mix. Fish cooked up fast and dinner was done. Will make again and again.
This was pretty easy and really good. I skipped on the red cabbage since i didnt have any, added some cooked bacon strips as well as sliced avocados and the bacon makes a huge difference. I did run short on the sour cream so id advice to double up on it, Other than that this is a great recipe and i will be making it again, Maybe with some grilled chicken next time
I didnt have cabbage, so I used green leaf lettuce, and cut up tomatoes and sprinkled them with lime salt (the kind you use for tequila shots)and for the fish I sprinkled Cajun seasoning on it and lightly covered with Italian bread crumbs, and broiled them 10-12 mins each side. For the toppings I used the lettuce and salted tomatoes, and added guacamole and sour cream. Very delish!
Not good, fish was bland. I did like the slaw mixture.
Delicious! I omitted the jalapeño (didn't have any), and instead sprinkled some ground chili pepper in the sour cream and on the fish before I fried it. Fried the fish in larger pieces, just because I find it easier, and then broke it up to put into the tacos. Easy!! Served with Mexican rice.
Very tasty. Slight changes were instead of red cabbage (grocery store was out of it) I used broccoli slaw and the texture was perfect. Also used flounder and no jalepenos were used. My husband is my worse critic and he loved the flavor. Did add some Penzey salt free spices too. Definitely serving this again for a meal.
Four stars because it was really simple and quick to make. Talapia was on sale fresh, so cheap too. I substituted preshredded rainbow slaw (broccoli, green and red cabbage, carrot). halved a lime and squeezed half into the slaw mix and half into separated sour cream. unnecessary to seperate and spice sour cream for topping - sort of bland and didn't make a huge difference. Followed slaw instruction and it seemed bland, so I added extra green onion, cilantro, some diced banana peppers I had on hand and a slash of insanity dave's habanero hot sauce. (i'm 8 months pregnant with terrible indigestion and it just did enough to give it a kick w/o being too spicy.) Cooked the talapia with fresh jalapeno in the oil but used Tony's Creole Seasoning instead of just salt and pepper. Yum! Husband ate four big tacos, but agreed even with my additions it was sort of bland so he had them swimming in hot sauce. Definitely think the amount of lime should be increased, especially if you aren't using a hot sauce for flavor, and perhaps added to the fish while cooking. Otherwise, pretty good dinner for taking less than 20 minutes!
Very good! I like trying different versions of fish tacos!!
This is a keeper that's going in my recipe box dmoneil
really yummy..all of the flavors came together very well!! A++
Delicious. This recipe has become a "regular" in our household!
This dish really is quick and tasty! I did make a few substitutions. I switched flour tortillas for corn tortillas, which really gave it the restaurant taste. I also didn't use the jalapeno because I foolishly made it for the kids also - who are super picky (1 and 4 yrs). I topped it with fresh tomatoes and a yummy cilantro lime salsa from Aldi. All of my ingredients were purchased from Trader Joe's, which I swear is one of the best spots for quality ingredients. I will most certainly be making this again!
pretty good. I fried the fish in a frying mix so they were crispy. All the rest was the same.
Another quick and yummy meal. The only thing I will do different next time is grill or bake the fish. I also added avocado to add as a topping. The sour cream and lime "dressing" was a great addition!
The only change I made was to add a little sugar to the slaw just because I like it that way. Really great recipe. It's all about the slaw.
As far as quick and easy fish taco recipes go, this is great. What I did differently was add cayenne pepper and lime to the fish, corn tortillas instead of flour, and I ate the jalapeño that cooked with it instead of discarding it.
These were so AMAZING. Super fast prep, full of flavor, just perfect. I'd bet that slaw would be killer on a burger too. A new house favorite!
New household staple! These are excellent. I only added some diced avocado.
Added tomatoes but it was amazing
Why reserve 1/8 of a cup of sour cream mix for 8 tortillas? We had to add Mao and a bit of sugar to the slaw and garnished with a little salsa. Then it was fine.
the fish tasted amazing, but we weren't big fans of the coleslaw stuff.
I LOVED this. The slaw was fantastic. As others did, I added the cilantro to it and used the rest as garnish. I seasoned my fish with cumin and paprika. I had left overs of everything except fish, so I used a chicken breast seasoned the same way and had left overs.
This turned out great! The slaw was a nice break from normal taco sauce. I chopped up the other half of jalapeno and cooked with fish. I also added chili powder and coriander when cooking the fish.
So delicious! Made a few changes as per my preference. I zest the lime, and I only use 1Tbsp lime juice for the slaw. Half of the zest I put in the slaw, the other half in the reserved sour cream. I use 1/4 cup sour cream for the slaw and 1/4 for additional topping. Put the cilantro in the slaw to taste, then add on a bit to the tacos later. Only use white and light green parts of the green onions. I also love throwing some bread crumbs on the fish before cooking!
This sauce is amazing! My husband loved it too. We had extra fish for a second meal, but not enough sauce. I had to make more of this delicious sauce for hubby. It's been several months since I made this and while looking through recipes, I ran across this one again. I decided to make it again tonight with fresh fish. I decided this recipe was worth writing a five stars rating review! I will only give five stars without any alterations. Once a recipe has been altered, it's a new recipe. Too many cooks have been burned by positive reviews from following the original recipe and not getting the results of a five star rating. Who has time to read hundreds of recipes reviews to get it right. This recipe truly deserves five starts!
Tasted great! Next time I would try a fish seasoning on the tilapia.
I made a few modifications to this recipe, to be specific, I used Crappie that I caught the same day instead of Talapia. I added Jalapeño sauce and Cayenne pepper dust to the slaw for some heat. Next time I might just use Cerrano peppers instead. I also used a 1/2 and 1/2 of Lime and Lemon juice in the Reduced Fat Sour Cream and let the slaw sit for 45 minutes in the fridge to allow the citric acid to soften the cabbage, which worked very very well. I used low-fat tortillas to help reduce the caloric intake as 2 just isn't enough in a serving. This is an amazing recipe with ultimate flexibility. I would suggest trying Non Fat Greek Yogurt in place of the Sour Cream and possibly corn tortillas in place of flour if you are truly on a stricter calorie intake.
Increased to 1/2 Cup reduced fat sour cream. In food processor - Combined- Sour Cream, Cilantro, jalapeno (and jalapeno juice), ADDED hot sauce, and TxJOY steak seasoning (or any creole seasoning) to sauce for better flavor.
I made the following changes based on personal preference: I used flounder fillets (I hate tilapia) I added the cilantro to the slaw instead of leaving it whole as a topping I mashed an avocado with a little lime juice, salt, and garlic I used corn tortillas with mine (to keep it gluten-free) while my husband loved it with the flour tortillas I used nonfat plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream This was all on personal preference only, this recipe was definitely excellent to begin with! Thanks for sharing it!
Quick, easy, and delicious
best slaw and fish taco combo recipe! We loved them.
Great recipe! My husband said it was restaurant quality. I used plain Greek yogurt rather than sour cream. Everything else, I kept the same. It's being added to our normal rotation!
We didn't like this recipe, mostly because the slaw wasn't tasty and the sauce was bland.
I made it and the whole family loved it!!! I used regular cabbage and made everything more spicy with paprika and some mesquite seasoning!!!
I was motivated to make this because I had mango salsa and fish. But I think I would have liked the salsa better if I had made it. I used it for fish taco's and it was wonderful. I cooked it on a pizza pan with holes on the grill and it worked out great. I also used the same marinade for chicken and I liked it too.
They were delicious. I made a pesto mayonnaise with lemon juice and I also made a cream cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper and everyone loved it!!!
I added a little more lime juice (fresh) and used plain, lowfat yogurt instead of sour cream. I used a type of chili pepper since we had one in the freezer. I also added some garlic powder to the sauce. The whole thing turned out so well. I MUST make these again!!!!
Did not go over so well with the family
These were very good! I'll be making them again. I doubled the sauce so the slaw was creamier. Easy and light dinner.
WOW! This was SO good. It was a last minute dinner and I had everything in the house. So glad I did. I used the tilapia loins from Costco. They are nice and thick so they hold up well. I loved the jalapeno infused oil to cook them in. I also used some Gates seasoning on the fish (kinda like Old Bay meets BBQ). The slaw was the perfect combo. We all devoured it. Will for sure make again. Thanks for the recipe!
This recipe was a delicious and easy base for us. We grilled the fish instead of frying it but followed the other instructions for the slaw which was the perfect accent to the fish.
this was a very easy dish to make I will definitely be making this more often but the recipe on here was a bit Bland so the next time I make it I'm going to add some different things each time I make it and see what I like better
No alterations except I used snapper. Absolutely delicious and easy.
The fish was pretty bland, but the coleslaw helped. Definitely needs tweaking if you like lots of flavor
So good! I did not use any jalapeno while cooking but I plan to next time. Added one packet of sazon seasoning and some cumin to the fish while frying. Also pan fried fish inside the taco shells for crispy tacos using thin corn tortillas and sprinkled some cojita at the end. We already plan to have it again tonight.
1 St fish taco I've ever tried & it was good.
Great recipe! Next time I will double the sauce.
I just made this but I used swordfish and omg it was awesome!
Quick and simple
a favorite go to
I made this again for the second time and it’s utterly delicious!!! I have very picky children 3 and 8 and the destroyed this meal. We add feta cheese to it and it’s a game changer. I make the recipe as stated!! Definitely a staple in our house!!!
I had never made fish tacos before and my boys were very skeptical when they heard. However, we were very pleased with this recipe! Like some of the others, I sprinkled lime juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder on the tilapia before I baked it in the oven at 400 for 8 minutes. I served additional "taco" toppings that each person individually added. It was easy to prepare, felt fresh, and tasted great!
This was really good! I made a few changes. I used non-fat yogurt instead of sour cream and seasoned the sauce with Spiceology Smoked Honey Habanero and Chili Margarite rubs instead of salt and pepper. Also added 1 T light mayo to the sauce. I cheated and used shredded cabbage mix. This was great with grilled tilapia seasoned with the same rubs I used in the sauce. Will definitely make again!
Amazing! my entire family loves this. Very easy and delicious. I only use about 1/4 to 1/2 head of cabbage.
This was really tasty and so easy to make. I would change one thing... I would use all of the sour cream/ lime mixture called for in the recipe to the cabbage mixture and make more of the mixture to add as needed for serving.
