Serve with the red cabbage slaw on the side or add a bit to your tacos for added crunch. Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage-Apple Slaw and Mango Salsa. Serves 4. Ingredients 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil 1 pound cod, tilapia fillets, or other firm white fish (4 four-ounce fillets) 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 6 tablespoons plain yogurt (milk-based or dairy-free). Assemble: Place some slaw over the tortillas, top with mango salsa and fish cut into smaller pieces.

Pour over the sauce. Pour over the sauce. You can sprinkle the tacos.

Step 1 Stir mango, avocado, tomato, red onion, red pepper, parsley, canola oil, brown sugar, lime juice, cider vinegar, hot pepper sauce, salt, and ground black pepper together in a bowl. Refrigerate salsa. This mango slaw is the perfect slaw for fish tacos, but you’ll find yourself eating it all by itself too, because it is that good! I’ve only typed the word “slaw” three times so far and it already looks incredibly weird to me.

Like these easy tilapia fish tacos with mango salsa and slaw. Pan-fried tilapia is cooked to crispy perfection in 10 minutes and topped with mango salsa, cabbage slaw, and creamy chipotle sauce—fast and simple taco fixings that provide the all-important crunch, heat, acid, and sweetness needed to build the MOST delicious fish tacos. Assemble the tacos: Top tortillas with fish, mango salsa, shredded red cabbage, sliced avocado, and cilantro. Squeeze any remaining lime juice over each taco for some added citrus!Warm tortillas, spice-rubbed fish, fresh crunchy slaw, creamy avocado, and spicy-sweet mango salsa is a DREAM pairing.

ADD IT TO BURRITO BOWLS OR TACO SALADS. Burrito bowls and taco salads are a regular staple at our house. While your slaw is marinating, make your pineapple-mango salsa: In a medium bowl, combine the pineapple, mango, red onion, scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, chives, and lime juice. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper.

Refrigerate the salsa for 30 minutes before serving. Made with mahi-mahi, these Baja fish tacos from Half Baked Harvest take the classic favorite a step further. Beer-battered and topped in a tropical mango salsa, these 25-minute tacos are so good you’ll want to make them again and again. And your dinner guests will agree.

Blackened Fish Tacos with Cabbage Mango Slaw is made with cod fish seasoned with a spicy rub and cooked in a cast iron skillet.

List of related literature:

While the fish are enjoying their well-deserved rest, make the salsa by mixing the cilantro, green onion, green pepper, mashed mango, and lime juice in a small bowl.

The fish is sautéed (not coated in batter and fried), tossed with smoky chipotle chiles, spooned into crisp taco shells instead of soft tacos, and served with a fruity salsa instead of a tomatoey one.

My favorite Minero taco is the striking fried masa-mixed tempura catfish, given a shot of cabbage bound by pickled green tomato tartar with a Duke’s Mayo base and a bramble of ruby-colored, pepper-dusted red onions resting on a coarse corn tortilla with frayed edges.

  • Laughed my a_ off when that cilantro got tossed in at you! This looks amazing, John! I have to make this for dinner tonight! Hmmm…..!!!

  • Oh wow wish I had found this at the beginning of summer when avocados are better, but will still give it a try! So glad I found you, just made the raspberry cheesecake and my husband and kids were in heaven!!!

  • I went to the store to get these ingredients but I could not find queso cheese they only had non queso cheese… welp can’t make these now. ��

  • I’m Puerto Rican and I love tacos. Being a veggie lover and this creativity is right up my alley. Def will make.

    Thank you Oliver!!

  • I followed your formula tonight…except with lingcod. My wife pulled the wrong fish out of the freezer, which is my fault because I didn’t label after catching and packaging.

    It turned out fantastic! A great blend of flavors. I bailed on the single corn tortilla over flame, not because my fingers are heat sensitive, but because my first taco disintegrated before I could eat it. For me it worked better with two tortillas warmed in the microwave. A big shout-out to Westport Deep Sea Charters and the crew on “The Slammer” for making my first rockfish/lingcod fishing trip a huge success.

  • Wow. That really looks delicious. Super crunchy and with the mild, yummy fish (We call Mahi “dolphin” in the south the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin is called a “porpoise”). Perfect looking and mouth watering!

  • Please allow me to first say Thank-You here is what I did to make it a little easier fyi purchased cabbage mix and washed/dried paper towel then frig. squeeze lime juice Added: cumin chili pwd cayenne to marinade….did not measure………….salsa: added garlic?? think that is it……..FABULOUS….never had before not a sour cream guy but all the tastes blended perfect…no avocado and used cheddar did not measure, used my own judgement and had gf taste……………………..awesome and ty Brian

  • Jamie is the MAN. Didn’t do those tacos yet, but they look awesome. Anyone tried? I don’t like kiwi too much, I have a single doubt about using.

  • hi jamie< im carlos.. I really love your channel.. me and my daughters will cook something so, so, so goodddddd that u will lick your fingers..

  • I have tried this amazing fish tacos recipe. It is really amazing. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Also here i have a special fish tacos recipe. Check out the recipe here:

  • Well, you said “add fish”, the video says “1 lb Mahi-Mahi”.
    Those are the strangest looking Mahi-Mahi filets I have ever seen.
    Those are truly tilapia.
    Will try your recipe tonight, regardless. Thanks for sharing!

  • Hi Jamie I really like your vids cuz I cook very well but often lack the nutritional substitution knowledge, my main roadblock is that I am a college student and don’t have a whopping amount to spend on groceries to eat the best, would you make a vid explaining tips on how to cook healthily in a college students lifestyle thanks

  • Great video but I feel bad for the dude eating the tortilla bread you put in your face & then rearanging the food after licking your fingers ��‍♂️�� super recipe but cmon dude

  • What a hippie…you know you’re in front of a perfect hippie when the “sustainable” comes out…tacos are Mexican right?..well…fish tacos most of the time in Mex are made with plain old tilapia…so why this woman chose an incredible expensive fish to make tacos with is beyond me….maybe because it’s sustainable

  • couple of questions:

    1. I often see people go into teflon pans with metal cutlery, while I learned to never do that to prevent scratching the coating. is there anything to it? or are modern teflon pans just better than they were 20 years ago?

    2. how do you eat these? it doesn’t look like you can roll them up when they’re this heaped with food:D

  • John, I’ve just discovered you and already am a huge fan. Great sense of humor, super natural in front of the camera, and, oh, did I mention seriously cute? Your hubby is a lucky guy.

  • Just wanted to thank you for this video. I am very anxious about trying my hand at cooking fish and after viewing your video, I feel a tiny bit more confident I can pull it off! Thanks and I can’t wait to try this recipe myself!:)

  • Love it! Gotta make these fish tacos with or without avocados they look delicious! Keeper recipe! The colors look amazing in contrast to the tortilla. Thanks John.

  • Those fish tacos looks so colorful, healthy and delicious! I am always looking for more healthy recipes! I will check out your cookbook.

  • Really bad she doesn’t season the fish only throws a little salt on top of them when they are already frying. Ughhhhhh and the slaw is dry as hell YOU CANNOT COOK!!!!!!!!!��������������������

  • alright. okay. this. is. actually. deliSSSSSHHHH! git damn!! So, I just have to change up a few things. I think I put quiet a bit of salt and I used sea salt. also, I changed up a bit the marinate sauce. I added some good ol old bay seasoning and some lemon pepper,but again I think I added too much salt or is it because I used sea salt? next time i’m just gonna leave lemon pepper out. anyways, it is DELISH!!! I could also change up the pico de gallo..find the right jalapeno and the right tomato.

  • Jamie Oliverneeds to practice making chapatis so he can roll it into a perfect round. Oblong tacosokay if it’s Jamie Oliver’s! ��. Sure it Tastes wonderful!

  • Fish Tacos Crunch…
    Picture a hot summer day at the Hawaiian Islands Kona, or the Big Island of Honolulu, at the Huki Lau freshly Mahi-Mahi fish, beautiful limes, aromatic cilantro chopped up, spicy jalapeños, and the crunchiness of red cabbage, radish, scallion, and delicious avocados, tortillas, and home made cream, light, packed with flavors, simply the best Day of your life.. Aloha

  • Thank you so much for your perfect recipe. My husband, who partly works in Los Angeles, asked me for fish tacos. I’ve tried to cook them here in Russia as you recommended and it works!

  • Sorry Jamie but I’ve owned “T-Fal Cookware”, I will never buy another piece as long as I live! Over and above that, Love your cooking style! I have followed you for years! Keep up the good work!

  • I love love love this recipe Sarah!
    It’s easy healthy and great when you happen to be a diet and don’t want to
    Fry food!!! Thx again for another wonderful recipe I do not feel guilty eating this. No ma’am

  • Everyone says that my mom’s coleslaw is the best they’ve ever had I have to agree. I’ll get her recipe and post it as soon as I see her.

  • This is actually really close to how we prepare fish tacos here in Baja California! nice and tasty. btw cant believe your husband doesnt like cilantro, its so delicious!

  • You need to leave the jalapeño’s seeds in to get that hot, spicy flavor, instead of using hot sauce. When we make sauces, we use only the vegetables and don’t add hot sauce, and we get some spicy stuff.

  • I’ve worked as a chef for a few years and can agree with so much of what this lady is preaching when it comes to the fish, however she needs to improve on her sauce, tortilla and guacamole game. Might just be the American style of cooking though.

  • That looks a lot like tilapia instead of mahi. growing up fishing in South Florida I can kind of spot when somebody is selling me tilapia or cod instead of grouper and that was definitely not mahi lol

  • I start by squeezing lime juice & throw in the chopped onions second. By the time you prep the other ingredients the onions should be less bitter after having “cooked” in the acid. Just a tip:)

  • hi there Jaime, what is the recipe for the tortilla dough? thanks very much! I will make this delicious recipe, mmmm that red cabbage watered my mouth.:-)

  • I made these yesterday, I honestly got kisses and hugs from my kids to show love and appreciation for the effort that I made to make these delicious tacos ��. Thank you �� and �� again for sharing ������

  • haddock is so expensive here in Florida. tacos are supposed to be a bargain meal. I wonder what fish caught in the gulf would work?

  • Good for him from refraining eating the (alchy-slaw) but I have a bottle of Corralejo in front of me and will have 2 shots before making this masterpiece! ������‍♂️����

  • Just made this using chicken. It was okay. I guess I need to add more salt or something It needed more flavor.. I learned why not to add oil to my pan for the tortilla…smh

  • Wonderful Jamie! Can you please do some Ramadan recipes as well. 1.8 Billion people observing Ramadan atm mostly fasting everyday. This is one of your fan from them. Love and peace

  • “Oceans are for everyone”????? That is a bit rich coming from one of the world’s biggest polluters that withdrew from the Paris Accord on Climate change. The USA has lost all right to tell anyone what to do about the environment.

  • People, please always grill your tortillas, especially flour ones. Some people just throw them in microwave for a few seconds, NO. Flour tortillas are never cooked all the way when packaged, that is why they stick together, they are still raw and doughy.

  • Ian, how neat it is to be cooking right beside my queen of cooking, to my opinion. She’s so bubbly and been one of my first watches on the food network channel. I’m jealous. It’s a dream of mine. I hope I get this one day. Rachel you always bring the love of cooking out of me. Your fish looks scrumptious!!!

  • This a really great recipe, but I have to tell you, I am from Ensenada Mexico where the fish taco was invented. true story, and the original recipe is different.

  • Why bother to do cooking videos if you don’t know what you are doing? I was totally grossed out the moment you used the contaminated knife to cut your pepper. God knows what is growing on that wooden cutting board. No seasonings, cheap pan, washing your knife with a bare hand with no soap, not giving slaw anytime to marinate or break down total amateur. You wasted our time.

  • Hi John, you should trying making Baja CA style fish tacos; with pico de gallo serrano Chile instead! Yummy! Now I want try fish tacos with Cotija. Never had Cotija on my fish tacos!

  • thank you nice lady, I learned 2 things, how to dice a mango, and that soaking a red onion in water makes it not as hot, looks good

  • This looks so Delicious! I wish I could make it that good 😉 Well You have earned a new Subscriber!!! Amazing Work, Waiting for your new video:) Hey In the mean time, can you Visit my Channel! Your Suggestions are Welcome! Subscribe if you like it:-))

  • I made fish tacos tonight… I did a beer batter fried taco.. I kinda wish I did a shallow fry with no batter like these… one reason I got 3 fillets and they went a VERY long way.. now with the batter on them it’s gonna be hard to warm up.. I kinda like how you made your slaw also… I did a for lack of a better term quick pickle.. I did lime juice salt and pepper… let it get all nice tangy… I also made a home made pico de Gallo… also I took some crema chipotle sauce and some lime for a sauce…I know it all sounds like a lot of lime but it was not over powering at all… also a wedge of avocado to top it off….

  • Ensenada, Baja home of the original fish tacos. Now there you also Find grilled fish tacos. Like this version. You can use a thousand islands dressing instead of cream/mayo sauce with either the fried or grilled fish tacos after cooking with cabbage, lime, pico de gallo, hot sauce on a warm corn tortilla. Best if you buy the uncooked tortillas when cooked they taste as homemade.

  • A recipe made & explained in a simple easy way. Not to mention that I DON’T have to “deep fry” the fish. It’s Monday 6/22/20 & I’ll be doin this here fish taco thing for my Sunday dinner! 6/28/20 (Lord willing) Thank U for sharing, peace & blessings to U & yours! ����

  • Jaimie, these ingredients all look wonderful, and Im sure the taste is spectacular, but the plating and presentation is so far away from what authentic tacos are supposed to be.

  • Actually they are both very different in flavor, although they look the same. In Indian cooking, we often use coriander which I think has a stronger flavor than cilantro. But I love both herbs.

  • This looks tasty.

    BTW Sarah I just saw your “Bluth Bananas” video on the EDF blog and being an Arrested Development fan, Loved it! Also it being YouTube Comedy Week and all the Bluth Bananas vid would be great uploaded on here. 😉
