Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Additional Time 18 minutes
Total Time 36 minutes


  • 2 fresh cod fillets
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons gluten-free or all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of tapioca or cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning (homemade or store bought)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 avocado, pitted and cut into thick strips
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage, grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh homemade salsa¬†
  • 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 4-6 small corn or flour tortillas
  • Taco Alioli (opcional)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey


    1. If using, make the aioli by combining all of the aioli ingredients in a small bowl and chilling it.
    2. For 5 minutes, preheat the fryer (turn on, set the time to 5 minutes at 360 degrees, the fryer should start to preheat automatically).
    3. mix the flour, starch, taco seasoning, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
    4. Dry the cod fillets with a paper towel, then place them on a plate with the seasoning mixture and toss to lightly coat all sides.
    5. Place the fish fillets in the bottom of the preheated fryer basket and cover with parchment paper.
    6. Set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer to 8 minutes before you begin.
    7. Remove the basket and flip the fish after 4 minutes (this is optional, but will help the fish crisp on both sides).
    8. Return the basket to the fryer and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
    9. Once the taco shells are heated, top with 1/2 to 1/3 of each fish fillet per taco, followed by the sliced avocado, shredded cabbage, fresh salsa, cilantro, a splash of aioli (optional), and a drizzle of fresh lime.
    10. Enjoy while the fish is still hot and crispy!
