Ingredients

Cabbage Slaw

  • ~2 cups pre-shredded cabbage 180g
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • salt/pepper to taste

Mayo & Dijon Sauce

  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard

Fish

  • 2-3 fillets of tilapia haddock or cod
  • spices I seasoned mine with garlic powder, cayenne, chili powder, salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • lime juice

Tortillas & Toppings

  • 4 Flat Out Wraps sliced into two OR homemade very low carb keto tortillas
  • 4 tbsp tartar sauce
  • 1 1/2 Avocados cut into chunks
  • pico de gallo or salsa optional
  • cilantro optional
  • extra lime

Instructions

  • In a bowl, add all of your cabbage slaw ingredients and toss to coat. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
  • In another small bowl, mix together your mayo and dijon, also set aside in the fridge.
  • On a plate, season your fish well with spices on both sides.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat, add 1 tbsp of olive oil, once hot, add your fish and cook for 4-6min depending on the thickness of the fillets then flip and cook for another 4-6min. Remove from the heat, place in a bowl and break into smaller chunks.
  • Assemble your tacos by slicing your wraps in half and spreading 1 1/2 tsp of the tartar sauce in the middle of the wrap, top that with the cabbage slaw, avocado chunks, fish, then ~2 tsp dijon mayo and optional pico de Gallo, salsa & cilantro. Repeat for the rest of the tacos (use double of each ingredient if making a 4 giant tacos).
  • Serve with a side of lime. Enjoy your Low Carb Fish Tacos With Cabbage Slaw!

Notes

Tips For Making These Keto Friendly Fish Tacos

  • Use whichever fish you prefer for these tacos, personally we've used haddock, tilapia and cod but I would love to try grouper or mani mahi if I could get my hands on some!
  • Feel free to switch up the sauces and filling depending on preference. 
  • To add more flavour, use a marinate like this one on your fish ahead of time and then cook it a few hours later!
  • Nutrition would be 12g of NET Carbs & 509 calories if using 2 flat out, fold it 5 grain flax wraps

Can I lower the carbs and calories of these fish tacos?

  • Yes! You definitely can. Try making these in lettuce wraps instead of low carb tortillas to lower the calories AND carbohydrates.
  • To keep the flavour but decrease the carbs, fry your fish in a low carb batter like this one before placing in lettuce wraps
