These Baja Fish Tacos are one of my favorite fish dinner recipes.

Fish Dinner Recipes Easy Baja Fish Tacos - It Is a Keeper

For the most part, I’m not a big fish eater.  Some would think that odd because I’m part Scandinavian.  But, we didn’t really eat fish growing up.  Therefor, I have a hard time with it now as an adult.

But there is an exception.  Fish tacos.   I don’t know what the magical component is, but when it comes to fish tacos, I just can’t get enough.

Fish Dinner Recipes Easy Baja Fish Tacos - It Is a Keeper

This recipe is one of my favorite fish taco recipes.  I love it because the tender cod is coated in a zippy spice blend then seared to perfection.

Then, it’s topped with fresh cabbage and crunchy tortilla strips and topped with an incredible Baja sauce.

And, when you wrap all of this deliciousness up into a soft flour tortilla, something magical happens.  All of the flavors and textures become one.

It really is the perfect balance of flavor and texture.  And, my family cannot get enough of these! Like Taco recipes, try these fun Walking Tacos.
