Classic fish tacos often feature deep-fried fish, a corn tortilla, cabbage and a thin mayo-based sauce. But we found that fish + pita bread = total yumminess in this streamlined version using lemon-flavored fish with a Cajun twist. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen


  • 2 packages (7.6 ounces each) frozen lemon butter grilled fish fillets
  • 3 cups broccoli coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet orange pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, divided
  • 4 whole pita breads, warmed

  1. Cook fish according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, pepper, mayonnaise, lemon juice, sugar and 1-1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning.
  2. Slice fillets. Spoon coleslaw mixture onto pita breads, top with fish. Sprinkle with remaining Cajun seasoning. Serve with lemon wedges if desired.
