How to make Chili-Lime Fish Tacos

Chili Lime Fish Tacos is the perfect way to spice up a traditional, casual weeknight meal. For those looking to add a burst of flavor to their dish, this recipe combines the freshness of lime juice, with the zesty flavor of chili powder, to create a meal you’ll love.

These tacos use a flaky, crunchy fish to create a wonderful texture, elevating the meal to another level. Thanks to the simplicity of the ingredients and the flavorful combo, these tacos can easily be made in-home in just about 30 minutes.

To prepare the Chili Lime Fish Tacos, start by heating a skillet over medium heat. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin. Add the fish fillets to the bowl and thoroughly coat the fish in the mixture. Make sure to evenly coat all the surfaces of the fish.

Place the seasoned fish fillets in the skillet and cook on each side for roughly 2 minutes, or until the fish is cooked to your desired level. While the fish is cooking, prepare the tacos by toasting the corn tortillas. (note: feel free to replace the corn tortillas with flour tortillas) Once the fish is done cooking, flake it into pieces with a fork.

To assemble the tacos, start by adding the flaked fish to the corn tortillas. Top with the chosen taco ingredients and season with the chili-lime sauce. To make the sauce, combine the mayonnaise and liquid from a can of chipotles. Mix together and place on tacos to taste.
