The Best Fish Tacos with Mango Mint Coconut Slaw

Looking for a Cinco de Quatro Mayo recipe that is not only delicious but won’t kill your plans to be in a bikini by Memorial Day? Look no further than my homegirl, Gwyneth Paltrow, for the best fish taco recipe ever. These fish tacos are better than any I have had anywhere in the world and trust me, I’ve had a lot of fish tacos. Also I’m really partial to anything my dad makes on the grill and I think he can make anything (on a grill) better than you can get in a restaurant.

We made these during Lent. I made it a point to make sure we cooked dinner at home every Friday (that I was home… so that means three of them) so my dad couldn’t end up at a Pittsburgh staple: the fish fry. I used to aspire to go to a fish fry (I know, I have really sad dreams and hopes). I ended up at one last year and was twenty kinds of disappointed – probably because I didn’t get fried fish but seriously, when was the last time anyone saw me eat anything fried?

The fish tacos are seriously so simple – Goop says to cook hers on the stove but we just coat them in salt and pepper and grill them for 3-5 minutes. The longest part of the whole process is charring the pepper, which sounds a lot harder than it really is. Click through to find the recipe for Gwyneth Paltrow’s Crazy Good Fish Tacos or buy her book. Or ask me to take a photo of the recipe and send it to you.

I think she called for some boring cabbage slaw recipe but let’s get real – cod is such a simple fish you need some cool slaw. I had leftover mint from my St. Patrick’s Day experiments and thought it would a pretty fresh addition to the coconut oil and mango. Now just add a margarita and you’re ready for whatever debauchery a Monday calls for.

I love fish tacos, and I am gooooood at them. Yes I know they are simple, shut up. I love the idea of mango and mint together in a slaw–I recently had a mango-mint-ginger cocktail (like a cross between a margarita-mojito-mule) and it was quite tasty, so I’m definitely intrigued by the idea of using mint rather than cilantro in a taco. I think it would be a great spring dish (vs. typical summer slaws/salsas). Can’t wait to try it!

That is so amazing he bought it for you as a present! I didn’t LOVE her millet falafel, but that was probably just my fault for substituting something…

Your home girl Gwyenth? Well damn, I never knew you two were so close :) Ha Ha! In all seriousness, these sound soooo refreshing!!! I haven’t had fish tacos in… oh wow, such a long time. Perhaps it’s the perfect time to change that, huh? :)

Yayyy I can’t wait to see your take on them… I wish I could eat them every day of my life. I mean, I guess I could, right?

Was very tasty but the mint could have benefited from muddling to bring out the flavor more–there was brightness but not enough freshness. I think that concept is there, but it wasn’t my favorite execution. Reminds me, actually, of a particular slaw I have seen recently). […]

Oh girllll we need to have a little summer party for ourselves with her tacos and this coleslaw because I know I’d be in love with it. When can we go find Gwyneth and convince her she really should be our next bff?

It feels wrong for me to comment on this we both know GP ain’t my homegirl…but I had to tell you the pictures look good. A GP recipe is like listening to the new Coldplay song on repeat as I feel my ears bleeding. Okay that was extreme. I love you which is the only reason I am putting up with this senseless obsession!!!
