Compared to homemade tacos, packaged taco seasoning could have a lot of hidden gluten and the surest way to having a gluten-free taco snack would be to make your own gluten-free taco using gluten-free herbs and spices.
Here are two of the best gluten-free taco recipes you can try now for a change and how to turn each recipe into a gluten-free meal that would be worth every second you spent making them.
Recipe 1: How to make gluten-free fish taco
From the shores of South America to Alaska, gluten-free fish tacos are undoubtedly a culinary sensation. Fish tacos are very much like drive-thru tacos but if you want to add crunch and flavor to this recipe, adding seasoned coleslaw with fusion mayo and minced jalapenos is the way to go.
Making the gluten-free fish taco
- 8 soft gluten-free corn tortillas (6 to 8-inch)
- 2 cups of coleslaw mix
- 4 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1/2 cup minced cilantro
- 1 tablespoon fresh seeded jalapeno pepper
- 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
- 1 pound of halibut fillets
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 pinch of fresh-ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons of gluten-free taco seasoning.
- 2 limes (cut this into 10 wedges, 2 wedges will be used for the mayonnaise mixture)
3/4 cup of gluten-free mayonnaise
Use juice made out of 2 of the 10 lime wedges
1 teaspoon of gluten-free taco seasoning
1. Preheat your oven to 325°F or 163°C
2. Use 2 tablespoons of olive oil to brush your gluten-free corn tortillas. Wrap the oiled tortilla in a foil and place it in the preheated oven to warm as you prepare your recipe.
3. Mix cilantro, coleslaw and jalapeno in a bowl then add salt, rice wine vinegar, and pepper to taste and then toss to coat. Then set this aside.
4. Sprinkle pepper and salt on the fish fillet strips. Add some olive oil to a skillet, then heat over medium heat.
5. Add the fish strips then pan fry for about four minutes. Turn fish strips and sprinkle gluten-free taco seasoning on it. Allow strips to cook for some 3 to 4 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Take fish out and place on a cutting board, and then cut into half-inch chunks.
6. For Mayonnaise Mixture: Put mayonnaise into a small bowl then squeeze the lime juice made from two lime wedges into the bowl and stir mayonnaise and juice in half teaspoon of the gluten-free taco seasoning.
7. Take out warm tortillas from the oven. Spread the fish evenly on the 8 tortillas. Top this with the coleslaw mixture and a drizzle of the mayonnaise mixture.
8. For a more authentic flavor, serve this with easy guacamole.
