I will start by saying we LOVE fish. We have it at least once a week in one form or fashion, and haven’t found one that doesn’t please our pallet. Let me show you our favorite fish tacos and the easy fish taco sauce recipe we love to pair with it! 😉

Oh yeah….and I will show you how to make this fun fish taco sauce “bowl” you see here too, now that’s a fun way to serve it!

Ok, so first of all remember when I said I look for EASY meals I can whip together…..let’s explore that for a second.

You can opt to buy the purple cabbage, regular cabbage, cilantro, etcetera etcetera to fill your fish tacos but seriously it just doesn’t make sense when you can find a bag of all of that in a bag where the bagged salads are so that is where I start in the grocery store. 😉

Next I grab some Gorton’s Gourmet Fillets in the freezer section. Remember we’re going for tasty and EASY. You can bake as is or slice diagonally so it cooks faster.

We have bought Gorton’s beer battered and good ol’ fashioned air fryer fish sticks for years but now they have extra large fillets of cod now that have no MSG, no artificial flavors and taste amazing!

You can even make our air fryer fish and chips if you are in a real hurry!

There are a few optional ingredients for your sauce because of course some people like a bit of spice and some don’t want it spicy at all. In the end it is a really EASY white fish taco sauce recipe that is basically the only thing you have to “make”.

Now if I am serving this when people are coming over I have a little kitchen hack that makes it present really well. Serve your sauce inside a hollowed out head of cabbage!

Doesn’t this look more fun than just serving it in a white bowl. Of course it does, and it is always a conversation piece when people come over.

Serve it with any variety really. Cod, tilapia, air fryer mahi mahi, the list goes on and on.
