Cilantro Lime Fish Tacos

Hope you’re all having a great week!

We’ve been loving our time with family this week, and the weather is gorgeous.  Monday I went out for an easy 6 miles and had trouble holding an easy pace… my legs wanted to go! I held back, but I hope I feel that way at the half on Sunday.  It was in the 40s and sunny and just perfect.

We took a short kid-free trip for two days this week and savored our quiet dinners, walking through new towns, and even spontaneously went to the movies.  Such a treat! (Thanks, grandma and grandpa!)

Finally, I promised that I would share our fish taco recipe this week.  We’ve used a similar cilantro marinade for chicken fajitas- it makes anything taste good!

Cilantro Lime Fish Tacos (print)

  • 2 c. fresh cilantro
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce (or Braggs Amino)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1-2 tsp cumin
  • 4 fish fillets
  • corn tortillas
  • toppings: sauteed onions and peppers, grated cheese, cubed avocado, diced jalepenos, etc

Process cilantro in food processor.  Add soy sauce, oil, lime juice and spices and blend until well combined.  Spoon over fish and bake, steam, or grill.  Cut fish into bite-size pieces and serve on tortillas with toppings of choice.

* I started sauteing the onions and peppers first, then added the fish to the pan to cook.


When was your last perfect run?  What is your favorite way to make fish?

  1. Glad you’re having a nice visit! I had an awesome tempo run yesterday – felt like I was on autopilot, and I was just flying down the road : )

  2. Those look fantastic, I cant wait to try them! I love fish tacos, one of my favorite ways to have fish!

    Glad you had a great time with the family and had some fun time to explore and go to the movies, I don’t have kids yet, but I am sure that a little time for you and the man can be a great thing!

  3. I guess my last perfect run was Monday. I thought it was going to be painful and slow but everything lined up and it just felt good. Not the fastest but a feel good run nonetheless!
    Thank you for posting the fish taco recipe. Fish tacos is one of my fave meals. I have yet to try them at home though.

  4. I took two weeks off from running to focus on my Pilates and the gym so I’m pretty happy with any run right now.

    There is no bad way to make fish. 🙂 This sounds right up my alley though. I like a little spice!

  5. I envy your child free get away. besides the 1 night i was in the hospital when i delivered cassidy, i’ve never spent a night away in 4 1/2 years…I think we are long overdue! If only i lived anywhere near my family…i guess imagining what it would be like will have to do for now 🙂

  6. I love those runs when it feels so easy! I hope you have another at your next race.

    As for fish, I’m really boring and I usually just cook it in a pan with some butter and lemon pepper.

  8. this is a total throwback, but i pinned this recipe back in 2013 when you posted it, and just got around to trying it tonight. my husband called the sauce a “flavor explosion”. and that’s his highest compliment! great recipe!
