These vegan fish tacos are so easy to make with just a few store-bought products that you’ll want it to be Taco Tuesday every day of the week!

I recently discovered Gardein’s Golden Fishless Fillet and can’t believe how much it tastes like the real thing.  Well done, Gardein, although I am not surprised as every product they put out is high quality and tastes delicious.  I typically don’t eat these faux meat products often, but I will make an exception for these fillets!  Not only are they eerily tasty, but they are also flaky and consistent from a texture perspective too.  They’d make a great “fish and chips” dinner, but I decided to have some fun and turn them into tacos!

Upon my discovery of these fishless fillets, I also discovered Follow Your Heart’s Tartar Sauce.  Truth be told, I have been eyeing the jars of this sauce in my Whole Foods for months now, but didn’t have anywhere to use them…until now.  The creamy topping on these tacos is indeed, this tartar sauce. 

This recipe is so simple that I am not sure I can even call it a recipe.  It’s really just opening a bunch of packages and jars, chopping, and then tossing them with a few things.  It’s a great meal solution for a busy weeknight after sports or activities and you only have about 30 minutes to get dinner on the table with no time to prep.  Try this recipe!


Vegan Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw & Tartar Sauce

Makes 12 tacos


12 corn tortillas

1 package Gardein Golden Fishless Fillets

1 jar Follow Your Heart Tartar Sauce

1 package shredded cabbage

1 tomato, chopped

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1/4 cup shredded carrots

Juice of 1-2 limes

2 avocados, sliced

Salt to taste


1. Prepare Fishless Fillets according to package directions (bake 10-12 minutes at 425 degrees).

2. While fillets bake, prepare the slaw: Toss the cabbage, carrots, green onions, tomato and the juice of 1 lime in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and taste for seasonings.

3. When fillets are ready, heat one tortilla at a time on a stove burner, until the tortilla becomes pliable.  Chop the fillets into small pieces.  Spoon some of the slaw into each tortilla with about half of one fillet.  Add in a few avocado slices, and top with a dollop of the tartar sauce.
