For the fish

  • 1lb Wild Cod
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cumin

Chipotle Lime sauce

  • 1/4 cup avocado mayo
  • 2 limes – juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder

Pico de Gallo

  • 3 roma tomatoes – diced
  • 1/4 red Onion – finely diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro – minced
  • 2 limes – juiced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced


  • 2 cups shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 avocado – cubed
  • Limes
  • Cilantro 
  • Corn Tortillas


Step 1: For the chipotle lime sauce – combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until fully combined. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.

Step 2: Prepare the pico de gallo by combining all the ingredient and mix until fully combined. Set aside in the fridge until ready to serve. Pico is best served minimum of 30 minutes before eating so the acid from the lime juice combines with the garlic.

Step 3:  Preheat oven to 375. Combine all the spices for the cod in a bowl and stir until fully mix. Rub the avocado oil over the cod and evenly sprinkle the spices fully coating the cod. Bake fish for 12 minutes, or until cooked through and is flaky.

Step 4: To assemble the tacos, heat the corn tortillas on a pan over medium heat,  until they become warm and easy to fold. Layer in the shredded purple cabbage, pico de Gallo, fish and top with the chipotle lime sauce. Garnish with avocado, cilantro and fresh squeeze of lime and enjoy immediately!!
