Delicious Fish Tacos Recipe – Perfect For #TacoTuesday

Fish Taco Recipe

Here is a fun take on Taco Tuesday – with the most delicious Wild Alaskan Pacific Cod from Sitka Salmon Shares.

Tuesdays in our home are officially Taco Tuesdays.   We love that there are so many fun ways to get creative when it comes to tacos.  The fish taco recipe below happens to be my favorite way to enjoy tacos, alongside a margarita and chips with salsa!

There are four parts to this recipe, and it may seem overwhelming but it is actually super easy.  Most of the ingredients (especially for the seasoning) may already be in your cabinet or pantry.

I’ve taken the liberty of created a free shopping list and recipe card printable for you – it’s at the end of the recipe!

Sitka Salmon Shares is different.  Different how, you may ask?

  • More than 90 percent of seafood consumed on the US is imported (NOAA Fisheries, 2014).  Sitka’s fish is wild-caught from the South Alaskan waters.
  • Sitka is owned by the fishermen.  It creates a more just system that values hard work, high-quality fish and low-impact harvesting methods.
  • Countless studies show that between 20 and 60 percent of U.S. fish is mislabeled (CNN).  Sitka’s relationships with their fishermen and transparent supply chain ensure that the fish is traceable to the source.


Each member receives a monthly share of the harvest – fish that’s in season and respects the limits of nature. 

The shares come in many shapes and sizes that come individually portioned, vacuum-sealed and blast-frozen to lock in that fresh-from-the-ocean taste. 

Every month during fishing season, you would get a box of wild-caught Alaskan seafood hand-delivered right to your door by one of their Sitka Salmon Stewards or Fed Ex.

If you enjoy fish, I recommend trying out Sitka’s service – aside from the fact that they are more responsible, transparent, ethical and higher quality than other similar shares – the fish is delicious!
