These Fish Tacos are simple and delicious. Change up your taco routine by bringing the fresh flavors of Baja to your kitchen.


  • 6 corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 pounds white fish fillets (tilapia, mahi mahi, haddock, or cod work well)
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning (or other seafood seasoning)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional Toppings


  1. Season fish with seafood seasoning and smoked paprika. Set aside.
  2. Prepare tortillas by toasting on both sides in a hot skillet, until they start to soften and get a little color. (About a 30-60 seconds per side.) Wrap them loosely in foil and set aside until the fish is ready.
  3. Add oil to the same skillet heated over medium-high heat.
  4. When the oil is hot, cook the fish until just done, about 2 minutes per side. Cook until it flakes easily with a fork, but don’t overcook.
  5. Remove the fish to a plate, and break it into large pieces with a fork. Squeeze lime juice over fish. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Assemble tacos by dividing the flaked fish between the tortillas, and adding toppings of choice. Serve immediately.
