Halibut Fish Tacos with Slaw

Think you can’t make fish tacos at home? Think again! With a few steps, this recipe is sure to impress! 


I love the balance of flavours and textures in this Halibut Fish Tacos with Slaw recipe from The Food Network Kitchen. Fish fillets cook really quickly, making them a perfect weeknight protein option. Pan-frying the fish rather than deep frying also makes this a much healthier version compared to traditional restaurant fish tacos. You’ll need a mini food processor to make the delicious cilantro sauce, but otherwise, only one pan is needed for cooking.

To make this halibut taco recipe, you’ll start by blending the first 6-ingredients in a food processor. You’ll add some of the sauce to the halibut and let marinate for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, you’ll prepare the cabbage by tossing with lime juice, olive oil, salt, and scallions.

The Greek yogurt dip is prepared by mixing in salt and the remaining lime juice. To cook the fish, you’ll sauté  in a pan until cooked. Lastly, you’ll assemble the tacos. Delicious!


Nutrition Tip: I swapped plain yogurt for sour cream for an added nutritional boost, and 1 promise you won’t notice the difference!


Time Saving Tip: I used a pre-cut slaw mixture to save time and frozen fish fillets for convenience.

  • 3 limes

  • 2 cloves garlic
