5 from 7 votes
Fish Tacos are the perfect summer dinner! Served with mangosalsa, cabbage slaw and a fresh tangy limecrema. Each component is so easy to make. Fish tacos are an impressive dinner that the whole family will love. The fish is seasoned with a flavor packed blackening seasoning and air fried or baked for a crispy exterior with light flakey interior. Lime crema sounds fancy but it is simply sour cream mixed with lime zest and juice. It is the perfect tangy sauce of these fish tacos!
Pat fish dry with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture. If using frozen fish ensure the fish is fully thawed and press out any excess water with a paper towel.
Mix the spices and oil together and pour over the fish. Use your hands or a spoon to evenly spread the seasoning over the fish. Place in the fridge to marinate for 15 minutes.
Prepare your mango salsa by mixing the mango, red pepper, red onion, cilantro or parsley and lime juice until evenly combined. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.
Prepare the lime crema by adding the zest of 1 lime and the juice of ½ a lime to the sour cream. Mix until combined. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.
Prepare the cabbage slaw. Use a food processor, knife or mandolin to shred the cabbage. In a large bowl mix the shredded cabbage, juice of 1 and ½ limes, cilantro or parsley, green onion and salt until evenly combined. I recommend using your hands to mix the cabbage and gently press/massage the cabbage to soften it. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.
