Grilled fish taco on corn tortilla

Grilled Fish Tacos


This recipe for Grilled Fish Tacos from Eating Well, modified it a bit to fit my tastes.

I like to make my corn tortillas from scratch, using instant masa flour. After many batches of corn tortillas that break while eating, I’ve found great success with these instructions for fresh corn tortillas from Frieda Loves Bread.

Process notes

  • cut recipe in half, and stretched out the filling to fill 8 tacos
  • used 3 teaspoons homemade chili powder in place of fish rub spices + salt and pepper
  • used regular sour cream and mayonnaise instead of low fat versions
  • used Mahi Mahi for the fish (although I’ve happily used halibut in the past as well)


Depending on my mood, batter fried or grilled fish tacos can be equally delicious. I prefer to leave the fried version to Mexican restaurants that really know their fish tacos. This recipe for grilled fish tacos made at home definitely satisfies my hunger for fish tacos, and is on the healthier side which is nice. It’s so good that I’ve made it over and over, and haven’t even bothered to look for other recipes to compare. I love this recipe.
