Crispy Baked Fish Tacos
A trifecta of crispy baked fish, cooling avocado crema, and refreshing cabbage lime slaw.
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 1 teaspoon chili powder, optional
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 pounds cod, cut into 2-inch pieces
Preheat oven to 375 °F degrees.
Mix together panko breadcrumbs, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper (and chili powder if using) in a bowl. Whisk egg in a separate bowl.
Dip each fish piece in egg so that it is evenly coated on all sides.
Transfer the fish to the panko mixture and gently press to evenly coat. Transfer pieces onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake the fish for 10-15 minutes or until it is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork.
