Welcome back to our monthly deep-dive of palm oil recipes, where we take a look at some of our favorite foods and showcase recipes that utilize palm oil. Today we are looking at how to spruce up a crowd favorite.
Tacos: everybody loves them, and they’re among some of the most versatile foods you can have the pleasure of eating on any given day. Perfect for breakfast (hello, breakfast tacos with egg!), lunch, or dinner, tacos are an accessible, easy-to-throw-together meal that can be done quickly and simply.
Another perk of creating your own tacos at home is the variety you can incorporate into them. From beef to chicken to fish, plus anything you’d like to accompany your protein in this dish, there’s almost no limit to what you can end up with!
Because we love tacos so much, we’ve concocted a recipe using red palm oil to bring your tacos to the next level. There’s nothing better than combining a tried-and-true dish you already love with the rich, velvety feel of red palm oil – plus the health benefits it can bring! Bring your taco recipes to the next level with sustainable palm oil, and benefit your mind, heart, body AND environment while you do so. Plus, it also tastes great!
Now that you’ve heard all about our love for tacos, let’s get into the dish.

To make your red palm oil fish tacos, first chop all ingredients except for your fish and garlic, and mix together in a bowl. Then, add red palm oil and garlic to your pan and allow to simmer for about 1-2 minutes before adding in your fish, chopped into pieces. Cook over medium heat. After a couple of minutes, add in tamari, honey, salt, pepper, lime juice. Continue to cook until fish is no longer pink in color.
Cover your fish and remove from the heat. In a skillet, heat your tortilla over low or medium heat. Remove the warmed tortilla and add lettuce, several pieces of your cooked fish, and however much salsa you desire, in addition to your mixture prepared prior. If you don’t want your vegetables raw, feel free to saute them with your fish as well!
Spread diced or sliced avocado into your tacos. Drizzle the excess oil from cooking your fish onto the tacos. Serve hot. Enjoy!
Red palm oil makes the perfect cooking oil for all of your favorite dishes, and remains incredibly versatile, as well as being rich in flavor. Whenever you’re looking for red palm oil for your recipes, however, make sure you’re patronizing businesses who sell sustainable palm oil.
