Easy Halibut Fish Tacos Recipe
For the Fish
- 2 pounds halibut
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- salt and pepper to taste
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ½ cup sour cream
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Tortillas and Toppings
- 12 tortillas 6-inch
- your favorite toppings such as shredded lettuce, cilantro, avocado and cheese
- lime wedges
- Place the fish in a shallow dish or a resealable freezer bag.
- In a bowl, whisk together the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Pour this marinade over the fish and toss to coat. Cover (or seal in a freezer bag) and leave in the fridge to marinate for 30-45 minutes.
- While the fish marinates, whisk together all of the sauce ingredients until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
- Prepare the toppings for assembling the tacos. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the fish in a single layer and cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Note that you may want to fry the fish in 2 batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
- Cook the fish until it’s fully cooked through. An instant-read thermometer is the best way to check for doneness. Insert the tip of the probe into the thickest part of the fish and when it reaches 140°F, the fish is done.
- Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
- Serve the fish on tortillas topped with lettuce, etc. and drizzled with the prepared taco sauce.
