TACO TUESDAY! What better day of the week to share my new faaaav recipe?!
Although this recipe was made a few weeks back (so behind on posting!) I’m wishing I had it riiiiight about now. Ever have one of those mentally exhausting days, where bedtime at 8pm sounds ideal? Welp, that’s me today and I am TIRED. Is it Friday yet?!
Lucky for anyone out there that landed on this beauty of a dish, it’s super simple! It takes almost no time to prep, and I think it could be done start to finish in about 30 minutes. The perfect weeknight meal, that will impress almost anyone out there- veggie or not ;)
I’ve wanted to come up with a guuud vegan fish taco recipe for a while now, but luckily, my friend from work inspired me to try one with Heart of Palms! She made a version of these battered and fried in the air fryer, which sadly I don’t own (or have the space for)- but to me, my all time favorite fish tacos were always baked and flaked to perfection. SO, I took all of my favorite seasonings from when I used to make Mahi Mahi fish tacos back in the day, and just added them to this great & healthy alternative. And voila! It was a success!
Don’t get me wrong. I tried many, many times to get this right- and I have to say I feel like I really perfected it. Plus, your house wont smell like baked fish. WOohoo!
Give it a go! Your tummy will thank ya :) enjoy! Xx Sam
I N G R E D I E N T S:
14 oz can of whole heart of palms, drained & rinsed
1 Tbs of vegan butter, melted
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp of lemon juice
1 tsp of soy sauce (or tamari for GF)
1/2 - 1 tsp of kelp seasoning (more for a fishier flavor!)
1/2 tsp of each chili powder & old bay seasoning
Dash of cayenne pepper
To serve: corn tortillas, shredded cabbage, arugula, avocado+ taco sauce [below!]
“FISH”: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. In a small bowl, break up/shred the heart of palms with a fork. Separately combine remaining ingredients, and pour over the palms. Toss to coat well. You can either cook it right away, or let marinade in the fridge longer for a deeper flavor! When ready to cook, spread out in a small baking pan, and pop in the oven. Cook for 15 mins, until lightly golden around the edges.
Warm your tortillas, dice up veggies + assemble tacos to perfection!

Combine all ingredients, and [generously] pour over zeeee tacos! Enjoy!
