IBS-Friendly Fish Tacos

Who loves Taco Tuesdays!? I know I do! I remember growing up eating tacos and my mom always had her special way of making it with her delicious seasonings and cheesy toppings. However, if I even had a bite of one of her delicious tacos now, my IBS would send me to the toilet more times than I would care to count. With that being said, I created my own IBS friendly taco recipe and if you like seafood, you’ll definitely like this dish! It’s quick and easy to make, and if you prepare enough fish, you can stretch it a few days with various sides.

  • 1 lb. (or .5 kg) of Cod fish
  • Fresh cilantro chopped (¼ cup for marinade)
  • 1 Whole lime
  • Gluten free tortillas (I used corn tortillas)

  • ½ tsp. of Salt
  • ½ tsp. of Pepper
  • ½ tsp. of Paprika
  • ½ tsp. of Lemon pepper (only if tolerable)

  2. Then cook the marinated fish in a skillet, and make sure it’s on high heat. Once the fish is cooked, stir in the water to soak up the seasoning at the bottom of the pan
