I absolutely love this Rubio’s fish taco recipe! Have you been wondering how you can make rubios fish taco sauce at home? This yogurt fish taco sauce is easier than you think. And has easy to find ingredients at a portion of the price of eating at Rubios or Baja Fresh for that matter.
I rarely buy cabbage. But the other day my son requested orange chicken and chow mien (recipe to come soon!) and so I had some left over cabbage so I threw this easy weeknight meal together and it was an absolute hit in our home! You can make this easy like I did and use my sons favorite Costco fish sticks chopped up or you can make some of your own breaded fish for the tacos. I feel like the sauce is the star in the recipe! So here is the perfect fish taco recipe.

Copycat Rubios Fish Tacos


Corn Tortillas (10)
Breaded Fish sticks (12)
Cabbage, shredded (1/3 of a head)
Lime, cut into small wedges (4)

Rubios sauce:

1/2 cup yogurt, plain
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon fresh dill, chopped or 1 teaspoon dill pickle juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
juice of 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
For the sauce: whisk together all ingredients in a bowl. Can be refrigerated up to 2 days in advance.
For the fish sticks: Cook them in the oven according to the back of the package. Once they are cooked in the oven grab a skillet and place 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil in the bottom of it. Place the fish sticks (I used about 12 sticks) and using a spatula cut into small pieces and fry for a few minutes in the oil until fish gets a little crispier.
For the corn tortillas: Place a teaspoon of vegetable oil in the bottom of a skillet. Lightly fry each side of the tortilla in the oil. Place on a paper towel and pat off the grease. Repeat until all tortillas are done.

To assemble: Grab a tortilla and a couple spoonfuls of the cut up fish. Add some cabbage and then a heaping Tablespoon (or more) of the sauce. Serve with a few lime wedges.
