Recipe Variations:

  • Fish – This recipe will work great with any type of white fish.  
  • Sauce – We used a creamy sauce over the top of the cooked fish. But you can use any type or none at all.
  • Shredded Cabbage – We love the shredded cabbage mixture to serve over the top of the fish, but you can easily use just shredded lettuce.

How to Make Fish Tacos on Stove Top:

If you do not have a Blackstone Griddle or would prefer to cook indoors, these Fish Tacos will still taste amazing. Stove Top Fish Tacos is an easy recipe.

  • Prepare the fish as indicated with the oil and seasoning.
  • Cook the fish in a cast iron skillet over medium heat in oil. We recommend the cast iron skillet because of the texture that it gives.
  • Slice cooked chicken and place in warm tortillas.
  • Top with the creamy sauce and shredded cabbage mixture.
