Fish Tacos are a staple here in Florida, but often they can seem a little intimidating. This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Young’s Seafood, all opinions are my own.

To make these easy fish tacos I used Young’s Seafood Crispy Battered Cod Fillet and Chips. The cod fillets bake up super crispy in the oven in just over 20 minutes.

I found mine at my local Walmart in the freezer section, they also offer more varieties like Two Cod Fillets in Beer Batter, Two Haddock Fillets in Crispy Batter, and fun Flipper Dippers!

They are great on their own as a meal, or you can make fish tacos like I did with a delicious chimichurri cream sauce!!

While the fillets are cooking you get together your toppings and boom, you have dinner ready in under 25 minutes!

I use the chips as a yummy side dish. They bake up crispy and delicious are perfect dipped in the creamy chimichurri sauce!

I do suggest making my creamy chimichurri sauce the day before, this helps for all the flavors to mingle and become extra yummy!

Putting together these tacos really can’t get much easier with Young’s Seafood. They have done the hard part for you, frying up the fish!

All you do is bake the cod  and put slices in tortillas. I suggest using some more fun toppings like shredded purple cabbage and roasted corn, it is unexpected and adds extra layers of texture and flavors to these colorful tacos!

The brightness of the creamy chimichurri really makes these tacos pop with flavor! It is SUPER easy to make too!

How to make Chimichurri Tacos:

In a food processor, add the fresh parsley and cilantro. Pulse a few times to chop it up.

Add roughly chopped garlic, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Pulse until combined.

Turn the food processor on and slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Set aside.

In a large bowl, add the sour cream. Whisk in the chimichurri into the sour cream until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight.

Bake up your easy and delicious cod filets. Slice and assemble your tacos!

Enjoy!
