6 tacos


  • 1 pound cod fillets

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 lime, zested and juiced, divided

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander

  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 small head red cabbage, shredded

  • ½ teaspoon white vinegar

  • 6 (7 inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 tomato, diced (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Place cod fillets in a casserole dish and drizzle with olive oil and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Season with cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and break apart the fish in the baking dish with 2 forks.

  4. Meanwhile, combine sour cream, garlic, lime zest, 1/4 teaspoon lime juice, and a pinch of salt for crema in a bowl. Combine cabbage, 1/4 teaspoon lime juice, and vinegar for cabbage slaw in another bowl.

  5. Warm tortillas in the microwave on default mode with a dampened paper towel draped over, 30 to 45 seconds.

  6. Assemble tacos by layering each tortilla with cod, cabbage slaw, crema, and tomato. Serve hot.

Cook's Note:

You can use corn or flour tortillas.
