Fish Tacos - Mexican Fish Recipes

1. Fish Tacos

Fish tacos are one of our favourite taco recipes. What’s not to love about beautiful fresh fish marinated in Mexican spices and served over delicious warm tortillas, a fresh salsa and a touch of lime? Just perfect! For this stunning recipe, the haddock fillets are coated with a good amount of Garlic and Guajillo Fajita & Taco Mix, olive oil, lemon (zest and juice), salt and pepper. The garnish and best accompaniment for this fish taco is a fresh and spicy salad, such as our recipe for Pico De Gallo. This is made out of crunchy veg and seasoned with our amazingly delicious Chipotle Mayo.

2. Baja Fish Tacos

Next up for our Mexican fish recipes are these tasty Baja Fish Tacos. They will immediately transport you straight to the sunny coastal town itself! We have used chunks of white fish (such as tilapia) that have been coated in Chipotle Paste and fried with a beer batter. Crunchy veg, fresh lime and Chipotle Mayo then round it off, and it’s all loaded into our Soft Taco Wraps.

3. Chipotle Chilli King Prawns

Chipotle Chilli King Prawns is a bit of a show stopper dish. For this Mexican fish recipe, we have fried the prawns in a spicy and smoky Chipotle Paste butter. A good squeeze of lemon and sprinkle of parsley is all that is needed to finish it off! It’s a great little starter, or can be the main course served with some fresh crusty bread and our Roasted Pepper and Halloumi Salad.

4. Grilled Salmon Tacos

You don’t automatically think of salmon when you think of tacos, but Salmon Tacos are incredible and must be tried! For this Mexican fish recipe, the salmon is coated in our Habanero & Lime Fajita & Taco Mix before cooking. This makes it flavoursome and Mexican! It’s finished off by piling the ingredients into Soft Taco Wraps, and topping with some fiery hot Serrano Chillies!

5. Seafood Tacos With Habanero and Prawns

For another fish tacos alternative, try our Habanero & Lime Seafood Tacos. These spicy fish tacos are loaded with prawns (the juicier the better), and heavenly homemade pineapple salsa. Red onion, red chilli pepper, pineapple, fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime is all it takes to make this vibrant and colourful dish, brimming with health. These days, delicious and healthy is all the rage!

6. Mexican Fish Stew

Next up is this authentic Mexican fish stew recipe. It is an easy one-pot idea and it’s brimming with flavour. This Mexican stew is full of fresh fish, shellfish and chorizo, all mixed up with our Chipotle Paste. Other tasty ingredients and herbs round it off, such as fennel, thyme, red onion, potatoes and sweetcorn. Once everything is added, leave it bubbling away before serving with crusty bread.

7. Prawn Fajitas

This coastal style Prawn Fajitas recipe works a treat! The authentic Mexican flavours of lime, peppers, chilli and coriander infuse with the juicy and sizzling prawns perfectly. We have used our Garlic & Guajillo Fajita & Taco Mix to coat the prawns in before frying, making them Mexican!

8. Monkfish Kebabs

If you are after inspiration for a fresh and new Mexican BBQ idea look no further. These Monkfish Kebabs are perfect for this! Nice big chunks of monkfish tail have been marinated in zingy lime, Chipotle Honey and thyme. They’ve then been wrapped in wafer-thin strips of pancetta before quickly flame-grilling on a barbecue.

9. Honey & Chipotle Glazed Salmon

Honey & Chipotle Glazed Salmon is our quick and easy Mexican fish recipe pick! It’s the ultimate one-pan weekday dinner. All you do is coat the salmon in our Chipotle Honey and fry up until crispy and squeeze some lime on top. You’ll never go back to plain baked salmon again! Serve it with our Mexican Rice recipe.

10. Grilled Avocado With Chipotle Prawns

This BBQ Avocado With Chipotle Prawns is another great Mexican summer recipe, and perfect to do as a BBQ starter, or a light lunch. Halved avocados are charred in a griddle pan giving them a nice rustic appearance, and then topped with king prawns marinated in our Chipotle Paste. A squeeze of lime and a handful of chopped coriander leaves finishes this dish off perfectly.

11. Prawn and Chorizo Risotto

Not strictly Mexican, but delicious never the less, this Prawn and Chorizo Risotto uses nice big juicy tiger prawns. We marinated them in our Chipotle Paste for a bit before frying them up. The pairing of prawns and chorizo work so well together, it’s no wonder we’ve had such great feedback on this dish. This is a slightly different take on our very popular Chicken and Chorizo Risotto recipe.

12. Tuna Tostadas

Tostadas are an authentic fishy Mexican bar snack. They’re so delicious and moreish, and would work well as canapes, a starter, or snack during that big game! To assemble these Tuna Tostadas, you will need our Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips, avocados, coriander, some Chipotle Mayo and fresh tuna steaks. A pretty healthy way of snacking, we say!
