Cornmeal-Dusted Lingcod Tacos Recipe

What's not to love about fish tacos? Well, here's a fun twist on a classic dish! We made ours with lingcod, but these would also be really tasty with halibut or Pacific cod. A definite crowd-pleaser—just don't count on leftovers!

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 20 min
Total time: 40 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 1 lb lingcod
  • 8-12 corn tortillas
  • 2-3 Tbsp oil
  • ¾ c cornmeal
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder or preferred spice blend
  • Salt and pepper
  •  
  • Slaw:
  • ⅓ head red cabbage
  • 3 carrots, grated
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Handful of cilantro
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • ¼ c sour cream
  • ¼ c mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Slaw

First make your coleslaw. Combine red cabbage, carrots, red onion, jalapeño, green onion and one small handful of cilantro. Mix together with lime juice, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Add salt & pepper to taste. Place in refrigerator.

Prep Fish

Remove pin bones and dry lingcod with paper towel. Chop into pieces roughly 1” x 3”. Pour cornmeal onto plate or pie dish. Add salt, pepper, and chipotle powder or preferred seasoning and mix. Now begin heating oil in skillet or non-stick pan on medium-high. Lightly coat the lingcod pieces in the cornmeal mixture.

Cook Fish & Heat Tortillas

When oil is hot, add lingcod. Sear for several minutes, until bottom side is golden brown, then flip. When second side turns golden brown, remove fish and set on a plate with a paper towel. Repeat as necessary. As you cook the lingcod, warm corn tortillas. You can do this in the microwave or in a second pan with oil.

Assemble Tacos

When fish and tortillas are both ready (time them to finish around the same time if you can), fetch coleslaw from the refrigerator. Prepare any other toppings you’d like, such as sour cream, sliced avocado, chopped cilantro, and hot sauce at this time. Fill tortillas with one to two pieces of lingcod, a spoonful of coleslaw, and other toppings to enjoy! Serve with a green salad or rice and beans.
