Blackened Fish Tacos with Avocado Salsa and Lime Crema

These tacos give white fish the boost it needs. A healthy, light dish with lots of flavor and lots of good nutrition.

There are 3 parts to this recipe. First, you’re going to make your salsa. Combine all ingredients, stir and let sit to marinate together while you make the crema and bake the fish.

Next, add your lime juice to the sour cream, sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir. This will also sit while you work on the fish.


The last piece is to season your fish and bake it. I used Old Bay blackened seasoning on the fish. Use your preferred blackened seasoning and coat both sides of the fish. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes or until the fish flakes apart easily.

Once the fish is baked, shred it lightly with a fork. Top tortillas with shredded fish, salsa and crema. Enjoy!
