  • Oven


  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Homemade Blackening Season
  • 1 lb. Swordfish Steaks
  • 6 Small Flour Tortillas
  • ½ cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 Plum Tomatoes diced
  • 1 cup Creamy Cilantro Dressing


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour the olive oil in a glass baking dish. Place the swordfish in the baking dish. Coat each side with the olive oil. Then, sprinkle with the homemade blackening seasoning. Massage into the fish.
  • Bake fish for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven. Cut into bite-size pieces.
  • Assemble the tacos: place a few pieces of swordfish on a flour tortilla. Place 2 tablespoons of shredded cabbage, 1 tablespoon of diced tomtatoes in the tortilla. Pour 2 tablespoons of creamy cilantro dressing over the cabbage mixture. Repeat until all the tacos are repeated. Enjoy immediately.


  • Save time - Don't waste time shredded cabbage from a whole cabbage unless you have it on hand. I pick up a bag of preshredded cabbage also known as coleslaw mix.
  • Cook fish from frozen - Yes! That's right you can cook the fish from frozen if it's in individual pieces not a whole frozen chunk together. If you forgot to thaw the fish, no biggie. Just add an additional 20-30 minutes on to your cooking time. Place foil on top and let it cook until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Gluten Free - This is a gluten free meal minus the flour tortillas. If you want to make these fish tacos gluten free you'll use corn tortillas instead. Or make it a salad! It's just as delicious as a salad.
  • Serving Size - Serving size is based on 1 fish taco.
