for the fish:

  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

for the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

for serving:

  • 16 small corn tortillas warmed
  • 1 cup red cabbage chopped small
  • 1 medium tomato chopped small
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • lime wedges


  • Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. Place the fish fillets on the baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the fish and rub to coat.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily.
  • While the fish is baking, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, sriracha, and lime juice. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To assemble the tacos, break the fish into smaller pieces using a fork. Stack two tortillas together, and place 1/2 of a fish fillet onto each stack. Top with cabbage, tomato, and cotija, and drizzle with the taco sauce. Squeeze fresh lime over the top, and enjoy.
