Fajita Fish Tacos With Chilli And Lime Sauce Recipe


Looking for a healthy dinner that transports your tastebuds? These fajita fish tacos are the perfect Mexican inspired lunch or dinner that take just 30 minutes from prep to plate – and that’s including making homemade tortillas!

We pair our fluffy homemade tortillas with seasoned meaty cod fillets and finish them with a zesty chilli and lime sauce for a dish that is packed with interesting flavours and textures.

We’ve opted for cod as our protein as it’s high protein, low fat, and full of health promoting vitamins and minerals, to create an all-round nutritious meal that saves on calories and helps to keep you fuller for longer. At 39g protein per serving, this dish is great for post-gym recovery.

Full of flavour and nutritional benefits, our fajita fish tacos recipe is even gentle on the wallet and costs just £1.21 per portion! And taking just 30 minutes to make, this is the perfect midweek meal.
