Fish tacos are the perfect answer to your craving for tacos when you don’t feel like beef or pork or chicken. We love to eat fish tacos that are lightly coated and fried, like these are or just grilled fish! There are so many delicious options for toppings and seasonings that you could eat them every week with a new variation and not get bored!
This recipe has an authentic Mexican flavor while still being gluten-free–so no one has to miss out on this deliciously flavorful dish!
Why should you try fish tacos?
My number one reason you should try fish tacos is that they are delicious! IMO- of course. However, if you do not like fish then you might want to stick to beef or pork or chickentacos.
Reason number two you should try these fish tacos is because they are light and flakey from the Mahi Mahi and the fish is mild and allows the flavor from all of the spices to shine.
The third reason you should try them if you have never had a fish taco is because you might like them! 🙂 We have always had a one bite rule in our house. One of my friends calls it the no thank you bite.. but you never know you could want the whole taco…not just one bite!
The Ingredients you need to make these gluten free fish tacos are:
The recipe is made with the following ingredients:
Wild-caught Mahi Mahi
Salt and pepper.
You also need either a lettuce wrap or corn tortillas to put the fish in. Just make sure your corn tortillas are gluten free 🙂
I served ours with a simple topping of shredded cabbage mixed with mayonnaise and chipotle seasoning for a little kick.
Gluten Free Fish Tacos
- 1 Mahi Fillet per person I cut them into 3 pieces so they fit in a taco shell.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp sweet paprika
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp chipotle pepper powder
- 1 pinch S&P
- Put all of the fish coating ingredients on a plate and mix until blended together.Make sure your fish is dry and roll it around in the "flour" mixtureHeat coconut oil or avocado oil in a pan until hot and fry fish until browned on each side. Place cooked fish on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.I bought pre made raw gluten free corn tortillas. I warmed them in a lightly oiled pan until slightly brown and then folded them into a taco shape and put the fish in the middle.You can top your fish taco with a cabbage slaw(green cabbage, gf mayo and chipotle spice), which is what we did as well as the jalapeno corn salsa.
I hope you enjoyed these gluten free fish tacos! I know our family loves them!
As always, Best wishes for Gluten Free Dishes!
