No deep frying in this take on fish tacos. Simply sauteing the fish and drizzling with a zesty dressing streamlines the star in this favorite. Tucking fish and crunchy salad into a corn tortilla offers a comforting treat while a topping of spicy chipotle sauce gilds the lily.



  • Put a rack in middle of oven and preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Wrap tortillas in stacks of 4 in foil and heat in oven until hot, 12 to 15 minutes. Whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt, chipotle Tabasco, and 1/4 tsp salt and reserve.
  • Whisk together lime juice, 2 Tbsp oil, and 1/8 tsp salt. Toss together lettuce, avocado, carrot, onion, and 2 Tbsp lime dressing.
  • Pat fish dry, then lightly season with salt. Heat remaining 1/4 cup oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until it shimmers, then saute fish in 2 batches, turning once, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per batch. Drain fish on paper towels, then transfer to a plate and drizzle with remaining lime dressing.
  • Top tortillas with salad and fish, then drizzle with chipotle mayonnaise.
