Crispy Fish Taco Bowls


The adobo sauce in a can of chipotles lends earthy heat to the crema that tops these bowls. Don't toss out the unused peppers! Freeze them in an airtight container and pull them out to add to sauces, marinades or chili.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 pound white fish, such as cod, cut into 2-inch pieces

  • ½ cup mayonnaise, divided

  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce from chipotle peppers

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • Pinch of salt plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage

  • 1 cup thinly sliced radishes

  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Place a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet; coat with cooking spray.

  2. Coat fish with 1/4 cup mayonnaise. Place panko in a shallow dish and roll the fish in it. Transfer to the rack on the pan. Bake the fish until crispy and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes, depending on thickness.

  3. Meanwhile, mix the remaining 1/4 cup mayonnaise, sour cream, adobo sauce, lime juice and pinch of salt in a small bowl.

  4. Sprinkle the fish with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Divide rice among 4 bowls and top with the fish, cabbage, radishes, the sauce and cilantro, if desired.


Any firm, mild-tasting white fish will work in this recipe. For an eco-friendly choice, look for wild Pacific cod caught in the U.S. or Atlantic cod farmed in recirculating tanks.

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.)
