Fish Tacos with Orange-Cumin Slaw and Lime Crema



My family loves tacos, so I try to create as many versions of these as I can. Fish Tacos with Orange-Cumin Slaw and Lime Creme is so fresh and delicious. For ease, I bake season cod until flakey and perfectly cooked. I top a corn tortilla with the yummy healthy crema made from Greek yogurt, add some fish and a little of the cole slaw loaded with peppers, green onions, and lots of flavors. These tacos are fresh and delicious and perfect for any night of the week.

Let's see what we need.

We're ready to cook.


First, we will make the coleslaw. In a small bowl, combine the oil, cumin, orange juice, olive oil, and rice wine vinegar. In a larger bowl, combine the cabbage, peppers, scallions, and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, add the dressing and toss. Refrigerate if making in advance.


Combine the ingredients for the Lime Crema and set aside.


Rub the fish with the oil and seasoning.


Transfer the fish to a parchment-lined sheet pan. Transfer to a preheated 425 -degree oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. It will be able to flake apart when cooked.



They're ready! Fish Tacos with Orange-Cumin Slaw and Lime Crema are so good and delicious. The fish is a breeze to bake in the oven but feel free to grill it , too.
