Fish Tacos

Cutting the fish into chunks before dredging and baking creates four sides of crispy breading and a tasty taco.

Oxmoor House JANUARY 2006

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 tacos)
  • Cook time:15 Minutes
  • Prep time:28 Minutes


  • 2 ounces baked tortilla chips (about 40 chips)
  • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 4 teaspoons 40%-less-salt taco seasoning, divided
  • 1 pound grouper fillet, cut into 36 (1-inch) chunks
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 2 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 1 (10-ounce) package angel hair slaw
  • 1 1/4 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper strips
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions (about 3 onions)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 6 lime wedges


Preheat oven to 425°.

Place tortilla chips in a food processor; pulse 5 to 6 times to form coarse crumbs to measure 3/4 cup. Place crumbs in a shallow dish, and stir in breadcrumbs, black pepper, and salt.

Combine buttermilk and 2 teaspoons taco seasoning in a shallow bowl. Dip fish chunks, 1 at a time, into buttermilk mixture; dredge in crumb mixture. Place fish chunks on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat fish with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

While fish cooks, combine remaining 2 teaspoons taco seasoning, sour cream, mayonnaise, and lime juice in a bowl; stir well.

Heat tortillas according to package directions. Top each tortilla with 3 fish chunks and 1/4 cup slaw. Divide bell pepper, green onions, and cilantro evenly among tacos, and drizzle evenly with sour cream mixture. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
