Fish Taco Salad


  • 2 pounds fish fillets (try cod, tilapia, snapper or others)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage or lettuce
  • 2 cups chopped vegetables (try tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, celery, avocado as desired)
  • 1⁄2 cup low-fat ranch dressing
  • 1⁄2 cup salsa


  1. Season fish with salt and pepper. Cook by your favorite method until it appears opaque and flakes apart easily. (see Notes)
  2. Mix cabbage or lettuce with other vegetables of your choice. Divide onto plates. Add chunks of fish. Drizzle with ranch dressing and salsa.
  3. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


Cook fish:

In a Skillet: Spray or lightly oil a skillet. Add seasoned fish and cook over medium heat (300 degrees in an electric skillet) until flesh starts to appear white. Turn fish over and cook until it flakes easily.

In the Oven: Put seasoned fish in a baking pan and cover with foil. Bake in a 350-degree oven until fish flakes.

Under a Broiler: Place seasoned fish on a broiler pan. Broil several inches from the heat until the fish is opaque throughout and flakes easily.

To make tacos instead of salad: Warm tortillas. Layer cabbage or lettuce, vegetables of your choice, and fish on the tortilla. Drizzle with ranch dressing and salsa. Fold in half.
