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.

  1. Step 1For sauce, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, and 2 teaspoons taco seasoning.
  2. Step 2Toss barramundi with lemon juice and remaining taco seasoning.
  3. Step 3In 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.
  4. Step 4Spoon 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.
  5. Step 5For the slaw, grate carrot into small slices with a box grater. Slice red and green cabbage thinly and combine with carrot.
  6. NoteIf you don’t have any packaged taco seasoning on hand, a quick blend of chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, dried oregano, cumin, paprika, black pepper, and salt should work beautifully.
