Blackened Alaska Cod Tacos

Sometimes you just gotta keep it classic for Taco Tuesday. Blackened Alaska cod Tacos were a hit! Topped them with a homemade healthyish slaw, sliced avocado and of course, hot sauce and fresh lime! Alaska cod is a mild white fish that is flakey and slightly sweet. It is a great option for tacos because it adapts to the flavor around it. The blackening seasoning worked perfectly. I decided to bake and broil the fish to get the ideal texture for tacos. It turned out so delish! I hope you enjoy.

For this recipe, I used Alaska Cod because seafood sourced from Alaska is consistently great quality and tastes amazing. Alaska seafood is highly focused on sustainability and is the only state that has sustainable seafood built into the constitution. I personally find that very impressive and have chosen to purchase seafood sourced from Alaska as much as possible. Next time you go to your grocery store, survey the options from Alaska and give this a thought. #AskForAlaska
