  • 1 lb white fish fillets, such as cod or tilapia
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Start by preparing the fish. In a shallow dish, mix the flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Dip each fish fillet into the buttermilk, allowing any excess to drip off, then coat it with the flour mixture. Place the coated fillets on a plate.
  3. In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Carefully add the coated fish fillets and fry until they are golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per side. Once done, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  4. Warm the corn tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave.
  5. Assemble the tacos: Place a piece of crispy fish on each tortilla. Top with shredded cabbage, avocado slices, diced tomatoes, and red onion.
  6. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve the tacos with lime wedges for squeezing.
