Fish Tacos (AIP)
Fish Tacos on grain free tortillas, with cilantro lime cream and cabbage slaw. AIP. Paleo Autoimmune Protocol recipe.

​This post includes my recipes for three different fish taco components. Fried Fish, Cabbage Slaw, and Cilantro Lime Crema.

​Yeild: 6 tacos

​Fried Fish
​3 fish fillets (any white fish)
3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 tsp. garlic powder
3 tsp. onion powder
3 tsp. oregano
3/4 tsp. pink salt (or sea salt)
3/4 tsp. ground ginger

​Mix all the ingredients (except fish) together in a small bowl. Brush onto the fish, coating well.
Cook in a frying pan over medium heat until cooked through and browning. Flip fish halfway through. (For cook time, follow the directions for your specific fish. Typically 3-5 min. per side.)
Cut each fillet in half lengthways. ​

Cabbage Slaw

​​1/3 of a purple cabbage, shredded
1 apple, grated
1 carrot, grated
1Tbsp. + 2 tsp. olive oil
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. pink salt

​Place all ingredients in a bowl. Combine well.
Set aside in fridge for 15-30 min. to let the flavours meld.


Cilantro Lime Crema
1 cup coconut cream (the thick cream that separates to the top of a refrigerated can of coconut milk)
1/3 cup cilantro, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 tsp. pink salt (or sea salt)
*Optional: 2 Tbsp. onion, finely chopped

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. (Keeps in the refrigerator up to 5 days.)

Fish Tacos
6 tortillas
fried fish (see above)
cabbage slaw (see above)
cilantro lime crema (see above)

​To assemble fish tacos use 1 tortilla, a scoop of cabbage slaw, 1 piece of fish & a spoonful of cilantro lime crema per taco. Top with fresh cilantro & a squeeze of lime, if desired.
Tip: You can skip the tortillas and use lettuce leaf wraps, or serve these up as fish taco bowls!

Hi! I’m trying this tonight. But I just bought the casaba root and I’m boiling it now. Does it have to be completely frozen and then thawed. Or can I just put it into the freezer for a couple of hours?

Hey Deanna! I hope they worked out well for you. Sorry I didn’t see this earlier. No, it is not absolutely necessary for the cooked Cassava to have been frozen & then defrosted. I just prefer the texture for working with it. As long as it is cold you should be good! 😉

I actually made them tonight. I decided to freeze and thaw them. And they are Delish!! I can’t believe I didn’t know about this before. Thanks so much for sharing!

Thank you so much, Eileen!!! I was only familiar with your instagram weekly favourites from it, now I understand the whole process! Love it! I have linked up. Thanks again! Love what you do, Eileen!

Absolutely delish!!! All elements worked beautifully together! I’ve made a lot of fish tacos, and this seasoning mix is by far my favorite. I blended the yuca immediately after cooking and spread out on my silpat. Only took a couple of minutes before I was able to make the tortillas. Will definitely add this recipe to the rotation. Thank you for such a delicious recipe!

I made this recipe for my family last night. My husband and 3 boys (9, 6 and 2) LOVED it. It was a win-win for me while I’m doing an AIP diet and trying to feed my family. They loved everything about it. The homemade tortillas, slaw, the sauce and the seasonings om the fish. Thank you for this recipe. I will be making it again.

Yay! Wonderful when the whole family likes it! Thanks for sharing!

I really enjoyed this recipe! I made the fish seasoning a second time and added Trader Joe’s seafood mix to fish in the pan and it was delicious. I made a chopped salad of cabbage, red onion, carrots, celery, radishes, and cucumber and used the cabbage dressing for it. Delish! Thanks for the recipe.
