This Mexican baked salsa fish recipe is so full of flavor and is always a hit! With just 2 ingredients and 2 minute prep, this salsa fish is a MUST in every busy cook’s recipe collection!
Guess what are the two ingredients in this baked Mexican salsa fish? Yep, you got it right – the first ingredient is salsa and the second ingredient is fish! :) This is the simplest fish recipe ever, and it’s amazingly delicious! You are going to love the fact that you don’t have to slave away to make this impressive dish. All you need to do is slather the fish with the store-bought salsa, put in the oven and bake. Everything genius is simple :)
You can use the salsa of your choice for this yummy Mexican salsa fish. I always use the medium salsa as to me it has the right level of flavor and spice. If medium salsa is too spicy for you, you can use mild, or if you like it hot, go for the spicy salsa! You can be creative here, this recipe will work with any kind of salsa, as well as with any kind of fish. Any type of fish will work, as long as it’s boneless and sliced in thin fillets. On the pictures, I made it with white fish. I’ve also previously made it with salmon and it was yum too!
Another awesome thing about this salsa fish is the fact that it’s baked and not fried. It’s super healthy and will fit into any type of diet! So much protein in the fish, nutritious veggies in the salsa and no added fat – absolutely delicious and so good for you! And not having to deal with the splattering oil – priceless!
Tender flaky fish with the juicy zesty salsa is such an awesome combo, you’ll love it! Even people who are not the biggest fans of fish love this Mexican salsa fish, as instead of pure fish they taste the salsa :) The fish is tender and flaky, and the salsa gives it a kick – these two ingredients are just made for each other!
- 2 lbs fish fillets
- 1 jar (15 oz) salsa
