Easy Homemade Fish Tacos Recipe

If the weather is still quite hot and you’re not really into using heat for your meal prep, this homemade fish tacos recipe will be your new BFF! Also if you’re trying to eat more healthy (and cut the meat) fish tacos will be your favourites.

Fish is known for being a much healthier than the other foods because of its lower levels of saturated fats and cholesterol (read more about the differences between fish and red meat here). Chicken, fish, vegetables, and beans are healthy(er) sources for protein. So why not combine them under the crunchy shell of a taco?

This recipe also includes hummus and pita bread, both recipes you can find them around here.

Here’s what you’ll need you your very own homemade fish tack recipe:

Now let’s dig in:


1. Chop your veggies finely.

2. Cook the fish on mid temperature for a few minutes each side, until it gets slightly golden. Also, add salt and pepper to taste.

3. Let the fish cool for a few minutes and shred it using two forks.

4. Spread some hummus over the pita bread. Add the shredded fish and the chopped veggies and beans and enjoy!

Some tips:

  • squeeze some lemon over your taco filling; it will keep the veggies fresh for longer and it will cut the fatty fish taste;
  • you probably noticed I haven’t sauteed the veggies; that’s because I like the tenderness of the cooked fish in combo with the crunchiness of the raw veggies. You can sautee them is you’d like, but I highly recommend you to have different textures in your taco;
  • drizzle some sauces on top for more flavour. I added pesto and it enhances the flavours so much.

Super easy, delicious and healthy meal for the lazy ones, like me, who can’t stand cooking when the weather is too hot. Am I the only one?
