Nutritional Benefits of Cod:

Cod fish is a nutritional powerhouse, boasting high protein content while being low in carbs and fat. With a whopping 20 grams of protein per 6 oz serving, cod is an excellent choice for those looking to fuel their bodies with lean, muscle-building nutrients. But that's not all—cod is also rich in essential vitamins and minerals such as B12, niacin, phosphorus, selenium, and iodine. Selenium and iodine, in particular, play a crucial role in supporting thyroid health, making cod a valuable addition to any balanced diet.


  • 2-4 cod fillets
  • Minced garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper, and paprika to taste
  • Cabbage
  • Purple onion
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Corn tortillas

Fish Taco Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce


  1. Marinate the Cod: Begin by marinating the cod fillets in a mixture of minced garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and paprika for at least 30 minutes to infuse them with flavor.
  2. Pan Fry the Cod: Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Pan-fry the marinated cod fillets for approximately 3 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked through and flaky.
  3. Prepare the Toppings: While the cod is cooking, prepare your taco toppings. Thinly slice the cabbage across the grain, slice the purple onion, and chop the cilantro. Slice the avocado into thin slices.
  4. Assemble the Tacos: Warm the corn tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave. To assemble the tacos, place a few slices of cooked cod onto each tortilla. Top with sliced cabbage, purple onion, cilantro, and avocado.
  5. Drizzle with Sauce: In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lime juice, and soy sauce to create the fish taco sauce. Drizzle the sauce over the assembled tacos for an extra burst of flavor.
