The Perfect Fish Taco Sauce

The star of our fish tacos is the sauce. Our fish taco sauce is a garlic lime crema that adds a tangy and flavorful element to the dish. Here’s what you’ll need for the sauce:

  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise

How to Make Fish Tacos

Now that you have all your ingredients ready, it’s time to assemble the fish tacos. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375˚F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone liner.
  2. Mix the seasonings (cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper) in a small dish. Sprinkle the seasoning mix evenly over both sides of the tilapia fillets.
  3. Lightly drizzle the fish with olive oil and top each piece with a dot of butter. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.
  4. While the fish is baking, quickly toast the corn tortillas on a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
  5. Once the fish is cooked, assemble the tacos. Start with the cooked fish and add your desired toppings, such as the fish taco sauce, cotija cheese, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
  6. Serve the fish tacos with a side of coleslaw or rice for a complete meal.
