Fried Calamari tacos with a mango slaw | Small Town Living in Nevada

I love fried calamari! Since I was diagnosed gluten intolerant, I have not been able to really patron many Italian restaurants let alone order fried calamari.

I purchased a bag of calamari and didn’t want to go the plain route of just making an appetizer and wanted to make it a dinner entree. So I came up with the idea of making calamari tacos. We love fish or even shrimp tacos and this is basically on the same concept.

So, now what did I want to pair it with…. a mango slaw of course!!

Gluten Free Grilled/Barbecued Fish Tacos

My kids love tacos and they love fish — so the combination of a Fish Taco is always a Dinner success at my house.

Unfortunately, it took me many years to even try a fish taco. And this is coming from a California girl who grew up only 45 minutes from the beaches of Santa Cruz as well as the bay side city of San Francisco. Nevertheless, once I tried a fish taco, I was HOOKED! Haha, pun intended!

These tacos are relatively on the healthy side and boast a lot of flavor. They are easy on your wallet, and extremely fast and simple to pull together. Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed rub and grill them for just 3-5 minutes per side.

I used affordable swai white fish, and rubbed it with a generous amount of Kinder’s Mild BBQ Rub. The fish was then thrown on the barbecue for several minutes until it was cooked to perfection. The Swai was then topped with a perfect mixture of tomatoes, onions, cilantro, cabbage and a dash of Sour Cream and Sriracha sauce all inside a nice warm, crunchy tortilla.
