Mexican Baked Fish


My dinner parties are usually always with a theme, and this Mexican Baked Fish is a popular menu choice for a different twist on Mexican night. With all the ingredients that the best tacos should have, I use them as toppings to baked cod.

You can design your fish as spicy and as mild as you and your guests prefer with a salsa of your choice, sprinkle tons of oozing, melted cheese, and top with those traditional, crunchy corn chips, and the Mexican flavors will just pop all over your tastebuds! Accompany with black bean rice, warm tortillas and a fruity margarita and your Mexican Madness is ready in minutes!

So, how to make Mexican Baked Fish?

Steps to make Mexican Baked Fish


Preheat oven and prepare the pan


Preheat oven to 400 °F and lightly grease an 8x12-inch baking dish.


Rinse fish fillets


Rinse the fish fillets under cold water, and pat dry with paper towels. Place the fish fillets neatly, side by side, in the prepared baking dish.


Add toppings


Pour the salsa over the top of the fillets, and sprinkle evenly with the shredded cheese. Top with the crushed corn chips.




Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until the fish is opaque and flakes with a fork.



Serve topped with sliced avocado and sour cream.
