Simple Southwestern Barramundi Fish Tacos will feel like an easy flight to the Baja Peninsula. Fish tacos are a perennial favorite of families everywhere. They’re so easy to put on the table, fun to assemble, and such a wonderful backdrop for favored flavors! Our simple, southwestern fish tacos are flavored with lemon and taco seasoning and feature a creamy sauce that enhances the buttery, clean flavor of barramundi. Recipe adapted from Taste of Home.


Step 1
For sauce, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, and 2 teaspoons taco seasoning.
Step 2
Toss barramundi with lemon juice and remaining taco seasoning.
Step 3
In a non-stick pan, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute barramundi just until it begins to flake easily with a fork (around 4-6 minutes). Fish may break apart as it cooks.
Step 4
Spoon fish into warmed corn tortillas, serve with sauce and remaining ingredients as desired. Feel free to add additional taco fixings like fajita veggies and diced tomato.
Step 5
For the slaw, grate carrot into small slices with a box grater. Slice red and green cabbage thinly and combine with carrot.
