A flour tortilla filled with fish and fresh slaw.These tacos are filled with puffy, crispy buttermilk fried fish and a wonderfully refreshing cabbage, corn, and pepper slaw. The flavours are as vibrant as the colours presented. Enjoy!


Any white fish is great for this recipe. I used tilapia. You could also use things like cod and flounder.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 to 8 tacos, depending on the size you make


  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb white fish fillets, cut into small strips
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • tortillas
  • tartar sauce
The ingredients for battered fish tacos with fresh slaw.


  1. Grease a pan and place over medium-high heat. Add corn and red peppers. Cook, stirring often, until everything is a bit browned, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Corn and red peppers being sauteed in a pan.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and add shredded red cabbage. Toss with vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Purple cabbage being added to the corn mixture.

  5. To make the batter for the fish, whisk together flour and cornstarch in a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk. Mix until perfectly smooth.
  6. Adding buttermilk to flour for batter.
  7. Pat dry fish filets and dip into batter until well-coated.
  8. Breading fish fillets.
  9. Heat up an inch of oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Fry strips of battered fish, cooking each side for about 3 minutes until golden.
  10. Frying fish fillets.
  11. Allow fish to drain on a paper towel lined plate. Immediately sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Continue to batter and fry the rest of the fish pieces.
  12. Fried fish fillets on a paper towel.

  13. Lay out a tortilla, add some tartar sauce, a few pieces of fish, and cover with slaw. Serve immediately with lemon or lime wedges.

I was just reviewing our fish taco recipes and all three are variations by you. Each one is deliciously different. I might combine this one with your fresh lime crema. Yum, my mouth is watering.

Thank goodness they are different! Sometimes I worry I might post something too similar after not searching enough. I try to mix it up. I do love that lime crema! :)
