These Easy Fish Tacos recipe is flavorful, quick and perfect for a crowd! Deep fried and topped with a sweet and tangy cumin honey, these tacos are epic.
Another Monday is upon us and the good thing about today is that I have an amazing Fish Taco recipe for you! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I am a little underwhelmed with this time change. Maybe more so for the fact that we hosted game night on Saturday and once all was said and done we weren’t in bed until around 4am. Then was up again around 8 to get the kids up and ready for Sunday school.
I always tell myself that I will do nothing and just lay around and have it actually be lazy Sunday. Yeah, never happens. I’m a doer at heart and I couldn’t help but cook and bake all day. That’s just how I do. Maybe one day I’ll be able to just sit and relax and not have to feel like I need to always do something, one day…I keep telling myself that. But in my insistent need to make things all the time, these amazing Fish Tacos were on the menu this weekend!
So we went out to eat at a local restaurant for my mother-on-laws birthday on Friday and my sister-in-law got their Walleye Tacos. Obviously being the family that we are, we share food. Those things were so awesome that I knew I had to recreate them. Unfortunately I’m not on a walleye budget, so I decided to use delicious fresh tilapia instead.
Now normally I am not a fish eater, yes I know it’s weird, but I almost hate all forms of seafood besides a select few. So luckily I tried her fish tacos otherwise I would have missed the deliciousness that these bad boys came with.
So after some diligent research into their menu I had a game plan and went from there. The cumin honey are essential to this fish taco recipe!! Seriously, I never would have thought to put the two flavors together, but they work SO WELL.
Add some cabbage, pico and chipotle ranch and you have yourself one heavenly fish taco. After this I have converted myself into the sometime fish lover catergory. What are some of your fave ways to eat fish tacos?

These look so amazing – I had never heard of fish tacos until a year or two ago, I tried one and now I’m sold! Congrats on your feature at #HappinessIsHomemade this week Alli!
Thanks girl. I’m totally sold to especially being a usual non fish water.
I have never been a fan of fish tacos but these sound scrumptious. Congratulations on your Happiness is Homemade feature.
Thanks Audrey. It takes that one recipe to convert people for sure. I’ve never been a real fish eater but making these made me love fish, at least in taco form.
These sound so delicious! I love the combo of flavors & look forward to trying them, Pinned & Yummed 🙂 Would love of you to share at the Sunday Fitness & Food Link-Up at http://www.marathonsandmotivation.com

Those look incredible, Alli! I think I might be able to make this if I leave out the chipotle mayo! YUM!
Chipotle completely optional! I like to dip my tacos in the sauce!
