Baked Fish Tacos with Avocado


Instead of deep-frying, the fish fillets in this quick-and-easy 5-ingredient recipe are coated with a flavorful seasoning blend and baked. Several varieties of flaky white fish can be used for these tacos. When you go to the market to purchase fish, the best strategy is to be flexible and choose the variety that looks freshest that day.

8 tacos


  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil

  • 2 teaspoons no-salt-added Mexican-style seasoning blend

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 pound flaky white fish fillets, such as cod, haddock or mahi mahi, cut into 8 or 16 pieces

  • 1 avocado, cut into 16 slices

  • ½ cup pico de gallo

  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Stir oil, seasoning blend and salt together in a medium bowl. Add fish and toss to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake until the fish flakes easily, about 10 minutes, depending on thickness.

  3. To assemble tacos, place 1 or 2 pieces of the fish, 2 slices avocado and 1 tablespoon pico de gallo in each tortilla.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
