Paleo Fish Taco
by Keleigh May on January 21st, 2016

​Paleo Fish Tacos
For Fish:
  • 1 pound white fish (I use cod) cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cilantro (I use dried)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Combine all seasoning. Cover fish with salt and pepper. Then toss with seasoning mixture. Coat large skillet with coconut oil spray and place over medium heat. Cook fish about 2 minutes each side (fish is fully cooked when white all the way through and no longer translucent).
Creamy Avocado Lime Slaw
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 large avocado
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 12 oz. bag of broccoli slaw
In a food processor combine coconut cream, avocado, salt, lime zest and juice. Pulse until smooth.  Combine 3 tablespoons of avocado, coconut lime cream with each 1 ½ cup of broccoli slaw. 

​Composing the taco:
Place fish, slaw and salsa (optional)  on a fresh Romaine lettuce leaf and serve!

Paleo Beats Regular FIsh Taco!

I first wrote this recipe about a year and a half ago as a guest blog for a Paleo website that is sadly, no more. So in honor of "Throwback Thursday" I thought I would re-share this gem with you all. So why is this taco better than it's traditional counterpart? The romaine lettuce cup is crisp, a great blank canvas for this culinary masterpiece.  The crunch of the slaw gives the “taco” the perfect amount of texture. And best of all? If you have leftovers, everything will taste just as amazing tomorrow. Typical slaw wilts and gets pitiful after a night or 2 in the fridge. Using the broccoli slaw, it is just as crisp for up to a couple days AND nights in the fridge! Looking for a fish taco that tastes better than it’s non paleo counterpart and is just as good the day after you make it? Where there’s a meal, there’s a way!
