Description

Here’s how to make the best fish taco seasoning! This dry rub brings in zesty, savory flavor that you can use on any type of fish.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder (makes enough for 1 pound fish; increase as necessary)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, for seasoning
  • 1 pound white fish, like tilapia, cod or mahi mahi (wild caught preferable)

Instructions

  1. Mix the chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Store in a closed container until using. (You can also increase the quantities to make a larger batch: use 2 tablespoons of mix per 1 pound fish.)
  2. To use in fish tacos: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pat the fish dry, then sprinkle it with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and pat it in. Add the fish taco seasoning as a dry rub and pat it to cover the fish. Place the fish on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, until tender. Then broil for 2 minutes until the top is lightly browned.
