Fish Taco Bowl Ingredients

This low carb fish taco recipe does have quite a few ingredients. But we would guess that you likely have many of them (spices, vinegar, salt and pepper, etc.) at home already.

Use Fewer Ingredients: If you are looking to cut prep time, you can get store-bought chipotle sauce and mango salsa. And if you are lacking in spices, a tablespoon of taco seasoning will be great in their place (just pick up a taco seasoning packet).

Shopping List for Taco Bowl Ingredients:

I know it seams like a lot of ingredients, but you most likely have many of them already… And this will make the marinated fish, mango salsa, creamy chipotle dressings. So it’s really 3 recipes in one!

Be sure to see above on how to minimize these ingredients! We love cooking, so whipping up fresh mango salsa is fun to us. But just about all the ingredients can be paired down to a couple store-bought replacements.

Special Tip: You can find all the measurements in the recipe card below. There you can choose how many servings of low carb fish tacos in bowls you want to make.

How to Make Taco Bowls

These taco bowls are great meal prep… and they are fantastic cold, which means you don’t need to reheat fish in the break room!

Make Meal Prep Taco Bowls: Simply assemble the taco bowls in storage containers, and cover. They will last in the fridge for 3 days.

I like to have one serving for dinner on the night I meal prep, then enjoy the remaining 3 servings for lunch the days following.

How to Make Taco Bowls:

  1. Mix the marinade ingredients and fish in a large bowl, cover and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  2. Preheat a grill (or grill pan on the stovetop) to high heat and lightly spray with olive oil. 
  3. Add the marinated fish and cook for 5 minutes, flip and cook for another 5 minutes until the fish is flakey.
  4. Meanwhile, mix all of the dressing ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
  5. In another bowl, mix together the mango salsa ingredients and set aside.
  6. To assemble, add the cabbage to the bottom of bowls. Add the cooked fish, avocado slices and 1/8 cup of mango salsa. 
  7. Drizzle over some dressing over the fish tacos and serve.
