Fish Taco Bowl

I love taco bowls, so why not make a fish taco bowl! It’s super simple made with bite-sized fish, seasoned with Cajun seasoning, and cooked in the air fryer for 6 minutes! If you don’t have an air fryer, just make this in a skillet instead! I got my hands on some blackfish and heard it was great for fish tacos, so I turned it into this quick bowl with a veggie slaw as the base drizzled with spicy mayo, so good! This bowl is spicy, fresh, and flavorful and takes only minutes to whip up! More of my favorite air fryer recipes are Tzatziki fish tacos, Air Fryer Fried Shrimp Sandwich, and Air Fryer Salmon!

Fish Taco Bowls

You can turn any taco into a bowl which I often love to do! This was more like a salad, but if you want to add grains add some brown rice or quinoa.

Fish Taco Bowl Ingredients

  • Fish: White flaky fish is best for tacos. I used blackfish here, but cod, mahi mahi, halibut, or flounder would also work. Spritz the fish with olive oil and sprinkle it with Cajun seasoning.
  • Fish Taco Sauce: Combine mayonnaise, sriracha or chipotle en adobo sauce, and lime juice and add enough water so it’s easy to drizzle.
  • Cabbage Slaw: This easy slaw for fish tacos consists of coleslaw mix (red and white cabbage and shredded carrots) tossed in olive oil, lime juice, and salt. You can cut your own cabbage and carrots, but the premade mixes are a huge timesaver.
  • Garnish: Serve these fish taco bowls with lime wedges and fresh cilantro.


  • Fish Taco Seasoning: If you don’t like spicy food, swap the Cajun seasoning for Tajin or chili lime seasoning.
  • Carbs: If you want a more substantial meal, add some rice or black beans to the bowl.
  • Fish Taco Toppings: Top your bowl with cherry tomatoes, avocado, red onion, or bell pepper. And if you’d like to add cheese, cotija or queso fresco would be delicious.
  • Herbs: If you don’t like cilantro, skip it or sub it with chives.
  • No air fryer, no problem! Heat a skillet on high heat, spray it with oil, and cook the fish for five to six minutes.
