Prep time: 25 hr
Cook time: 5 min
Total time: 30 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 12 to 16 ounces white fish, such as cod, lingcod, or rockfish (or salmon, pin bones and skin removed)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons taco seasoning, depending on heat preference
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, plus wedges for garnish
  • 8-ounce bag tortilla chips
  • 8 ounces cheddar or monterey jack, coarsely shredded
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 ripe Haas avocado, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup sliced pickled jalapeños

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F with a rack in the center position. Season the fish with salt and pepper, drizzle with oil, and rub with as much of the taco seasoning as desired. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish and cook without disturbing until browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until the fish gently flakes around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes longer, depending on the thickness. Transfer to a plate and break into large pieces.

  2. Make the lime crema: In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, lime juice, and 1 teaspoon water, and season with salt.

  3. Line a sturdy baking sheet with half of the tortilla chips and top with half of the fish and cheese. Arrange the remaining chips, fish, and cheese on top and bake until the cheese is just melted, 5 to 6 minutes. 

  4. Drizzle lime crema over the top and sprinkle with the onion, tomato, avocado, cilantro, and pickled jalapeños. Serve lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
