How to make Blackened Fish Tacos on the Blackstone

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.



Fire up the griddle and preheat over high heat for 5-10 minutes.



Pat dry your fish fillets and then season liberally with the Blackening rub and salt.



Put the oil down on the griddle and the fish on top of the oil. Lay the tortillas out on the griddle as well and flip after a minute or two so they warm but don’t get crispy.

Flip the fish after 3-4 minutes and cook on the other side. How long your fish will need to cook depends on how thick your fillets are.



Remove from the griddle, load up into the tortillas, and top with your favorite fixings!

Blackstone Blackened Fish Tacos FAQ

Can these fish tacos be made ahead of time?

Nope! Fish is best served right after it is cooked. I wouldn’t make these in advance. Try and plan so they can be served as soon as they come off the griddle.

What’s the best way to store and reheat leftovers?

The best way is to try not to have leftovers. Reheated fish will never be quite as good as the freshly cooked version.

What is the best type of fish to use for fish tacos?

The best type of fish is whatever you can get that’s the freshest. We love whitefish for this recipe and typically use Rockfish, Lingcog, or Halibut. More good options would be Tilapia, Mahi Mahi (Dolphin), or Haddock.
