Paleo Spicy Tilapia Baja Tacos with Lime Slaw and Avocado Cilantro Sauce
If you’ve ever visited one of the more popular coastal cities in Mexico, you’ve probably noticed all the curbside vendors selling street tacos near the beach…
They’re made with fresh-caught fish grilled on the spot and handed to you sizzling hot with a squirt of spicy sauce.
Grab a cold drink and you’ve got my version of the perfect beachside meal. Especially if you’re also taking in a spectacular view of the ocean!
That was my inspiration for this recipe. A simple and delicious gluten-free and paleo soft fish taco you can enjoy at home.
Even those who aren’t big fans of seafood will no doubt love this one.
These tacos are made with a very mild white fish – tilapia. Most supermarkets carry it, it’s inexpensive, and doesn’t have that “fishy” taste some people don’t care for. It only takes a few minutes to grill – outdoors or using an electric countertop grill indoors.
I added a crunchy lime slaw and perky avocado-lime sauce for extra texture and flavor.
And wrapped it all up in one of our easy-to-make skillet tortillas – also of course paleo and gluten-free.
There’s some prep involved for this one, but you can make the sauce and tortillas the day before. The tortilla recipe isn’t included below but can be found on our page here: Paleo Gluten-Free Tortilla Recipe.
My husband and I scarfed these bad boys down in just minutes! They were awesome!
And the best part? You’ll have a few recipes you can use over and over again. The fish, the tortillas and the sauce!
