Blackened Fish Tacos

Fish Taco Toppings


  • Mix together Cajun Blackening Seasoning following recipe from my blog post.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning on both sides of the fish filets.
  • Add 1 Tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium heat.Add the seasoned fish filets to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes. Turn each filet and cook for another 3 - 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and cut the fish filets into bite size pieces.
  • Place the tortillas on a small plate and wrap them loosely in a paper towel. Heat them in the microwave for a minute or so until heated through and soft.
  • Divide the fish evenly between the 8 tortillas. Then add your favorite toppings on top of the fish in the tortillas. You can top with Mexican Cabbage Slaw, Manage Pico De Gallo, or Mango Habanero Salsa, or chopped lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro, or any of your favorite toppings.


Note 1: Use tilapia, cod or other white fish. See blog post above for more information.
Note 2: Use either the homemade Blackening Seasoning or store-bought.
Note 3: Either corn or flour tortillas will work in this recipe.
