A healthy fajitas recipe made on one pan in about 20 minutes? Yep! These fish fajitas are poppin’ with flavour from homemade taco seasoning, lots of veggies and protein-rich cod fillets. Enjoy as is or garnish to your heart’s content with your fave toppings!
Sharing a super easy fajitas recipe with you guys today — cod fish fajitas, to be exact.
If you remember a little while ago, I shared a homemade taco seasoning.
I’ve been using it nonstop because it adds loads of flavour to dishes. Plus, it’s so much better than any packet seasoning.
How cool would it be to set up a little garnish station, invite some friends over and make a big batch of fajitas?
Why These Fish Fajitas Are Great!
- They’re made on one sheet pan (for easy cleanup)
- They come together in about 20 minutes, which makes them awesome for an easy weeknight dinner (or Friday night eats)
- They’re light and fresh
- The recipe can easily be doubled for a crowd.
- If you don’t have cod fillets on hand, you can sub with another similar fish
- They can be customized to taste with your favourite toppings
- They taste SO good!
What Type Of Seafood Do I Use?
For this fish fajita recipe, I opted for cod. I had frozen on hand so that’s what I used.
Simply cut cod fillets into roughly equal-sized portions so they cook evenly and equally.
Don’t have cod on hand or prefer to use another type of seafood? Go for it!
Other delicious options are:
- Sea Bass
Tip: Frozen cod fillets have a lot of excess moisture when thawed. Not a big deal, just make sure you pat them try with some brown paper towel before coating with oil and seasoning.
How to Make Fajitas
This oven baked cod recipe is beyond simple!
Spray your baking sheet with a little cooking spray or grease with some oil. Then, you simply toss veggies with oil and taco seasoning. Do the same for the cod.
Tip: Place cod strips on one half of a sheet pan on parchment, just in case it wants to stick. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
After about 10 to 12 minutes (or until the fish is cooked through, is opaque and flakes easily), it’s ready to come out of the oven!
Once out, give a generous squeeze of lime and try to get the juice on the food, LOL.

More Helpful Tips
This recipe makes 6 fajitas, but can easily be doubled.
Make sure your veggies and seafood are spread out on a large pan. Don’t have a large pan? Use two smaller ones.
No salt was added (because the taco seasoning has salt). However, you can add some salt to taste if you wish.
Opt for flour tortillas that are around 7 to 8 inches in diameter.
Speaking of tortillas, you can warm them or enjoy as is. Here are three easy ways to warm tortillas.
