Easy Fish Tacos Using Alaska Pollock

When it comes to getting dinner on the table during the week, I look for easy recipes, recipes under 30 minutes, and recipes I can make in my Instant Pot. Having an Instant Pot has been life-changing. I can get dinner on the table quickly. 

This week, I am in charge of dinner while Derrick is traveling for work. Typically, I’m one to get take-out, order pizza, or take the boys out to eat. But last year I told myself after buying my second Instant Pot, I had no excuse NOT to get dinner on the table quickly. 

We love tacos in this house, and with it being Taco Tuesday, I’m sharing an easy taco recipe I whipped up on the whim. 

Instead of our regular chicken or beef, we’re hopping over to fish as our choice of meat for today’s tacos. However, instead of the regular mahi-mahi, snapper, flounder, halibut or cod, I used pollock.

My boys are not big into seafood, but I wanted to try something different. I was quite surprised on the taste and quality of Alaska pollock. Alaska’s cold, pristine waters produce the purest, high-quality seafood. Its wild fisheries contribute nearly 60% of all seafood harvested in the United States. And Alaska whitefish is sold fresh and frozen year-round making it possible for my family to enjoy fresh fish any time of the year. I was able to find the frozen packages of Alaska pollock at my grocery store. After picking up a few additional ingredients, I was able to whip up some fish tacos in under 20 minutes.

Directions:

  1. You can either follow the directions on the back of the Alaska pollock for cooking it or use the Instant Pot. Either way, your fish will be cooked within 15-20 minutes. For the Instant Pot, I placed (3) fillets in the Instant Pot, added a cup of water and two tablespoons of olive oil. I closed the lid of the place, made sure vent was closed and hit the meat option for 17 minutes. 
  2. After the timer went off on the Instant Pot, I vented it and waited for all of the steam to come out for the Instant Pot lid to unlock. 
  3. Once open, I checked to make sure the fish was done, it was- perfection. I added some seasonings (to taste) on the pollock and cut it into small strips. {Note: I didn’t have to do a lot of cutting since the fish was practically falling apart}. 
  4. Now assemble your fish tacos. You can easily mix up the ingredients that go into fish tacos. Sometimes I will use refried beans, or I will switch it up with hummus. For this particular recipe, I am using refried beans, shredded white cabbage, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, chopped red peppers, onions, green onions, and cilantro. 
  5. Serve.
