Lately, we have been eating a lot more fish. We live near the Oregon Coast so we have easy access to fresh seafood. We like getting fresh wild rockfish because it is light, has a mild flavor, and is more budget-friendly than some of the other fish available.

Normally when we prepare rockfish, we bake it with butter and spices. Last week I wanted something different. I was craving fish tacos, but tortillas aren’t something we eat. I decided to play around and came up with a delicious substitution- fish taco bowls.

1 Tbsp gluten-free taco seasoning
1 bag of coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage)
1/2 cup of diced onion
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 cup of mayo
2 tsp red tabasco sauce
Salt and pepper
4 small fillets of rockfish

Optional Ingredients:
Fresh cilantro
Lime wedges

Directions: Pat dry the rockfish fillets and lay them into the bottom of a baking dish. Then sprinkle the fillets with gluten-free taco seasoning. If you like a bold flavor use the entire Tbsp of seasoning, if you like a light flavor, use less. Bake in a 350° oven until fish is cooked through and pulls apart easily. It will be approximately 10 minutes. While the fish bakes, you can make the salad. In a large bowl combine the mayo, lime juice, tabasco sauce, salt, pepper, and diced onion. Then add the coleslaw mix and toss until coated. When the fish is cooked, flake it apart into bite-size pieces. Serve the fish taco in individual bowls. Place the salad mix in the bottom and top with a serving of rockfish. If you want to, you can top the dish with fresh cilantro and a lime wedge.

Fish taco bowls are quick to prepare, delicious, and healthy! What more could you want?

Do you have a favorite way to prepare fish? If so, I would love to hear about it.

    I make fish tacos occasionally and use the coleslaw mix but this looks so much better with the lime juice and mayo dressing. I want to try this recipe soon.

    Yummy flavors in this. I’ll try making it.

    Being in the Midwest, our fish selection is limited as far as really good fresh. I envy you for being on the coast! This looks and sounds good. I usually steam fish if it is a good piece I love the flavor of just the fish with perhaps a bit of salt. Pretty simple stuff!

  • Peggy Nunn

    That is a great idea. I have never had fish tacos but you make them sound so good.

  • Lauryn R

    This sounds really good. My mom eats gluten free and I’m always looking for new recipes for her.

  • Debbie Welchert

    Wow, this recipe looks so amazing. I love the bowl idea instead of using a tortilla. No I have to go to the store and get some fish. I think I will use cod or maybe some shrimp.

    It looks awesome. It’s difficult to find good fish here in stores — most of all it’s tilapia from China. Great for you

    This rockfish taco looks so good . I love the ingredients you used in making it too. I try and eat fish as often as i can as well. I like using the coleslaw mix to makes it fast and easy to use too.

  • Sandy Cain

    I don”t have a really special way to prepare fish…sadly, I’m not much of a cook. But thanks for this recipe, PERFECT for my mom! She is going to be 91 next week, and has Celiac Disease, so I’m always on the lookout for gluten-free recipes for her. Especially fish, so high on protein! Pinning this, THANK YOU!!

  • Melissa Storms

    This looks easy to follow. I don’t eat any kind of fish or seafood., I do try to make it for my son on a regular basis though. I may make these tacos this weekend, I have Walleye my husband caught in the freezer and it is a light, white fish which I assume would work here.

  • Gabriela Arteaga

    This is a great recipe for a quick and delicious dinner! I love fish but my daughter doesn’t. She does like coleslaw, so I’m pretty sure she will give this recipe a try.
