Sweet and Spicy Fish Tacos

Sweet and spicy flavors make these tacos extra special.  You can easily make them gluten-free, and you can adjust the “spiciness” of the recipe for the kiddos if you need to.  Fast, easy, and delicious is ALWAYS what I am looking for in a recipe!

Serves 6

Total cooking time: about 30 minutes


1 pound White fish, cod or sole work well

Salt and pepper to taste

½ cup Panko breadcrumbs (use gluten free cracker crumbs as a substitute)

1 tsp Cumin

1 tsp Coriander

1 tsp Chili powder

Lime juice (juice from about 2 limes)

1 Orange, peeled and sectioned

1 cup Chopped cilantro

½ cup Chopped green chile

1 whole Avocado, chopped

Fish taco sauce: See below

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
