Tzatziki Fish Tacos have a Greek twist! Crisp breaded fish fillets served on tortillas topped with tzatziki sauce made with Greek yogurt, cucumbers and fresh herbs.

I love fish tacos, some favorites are Cilantro Lime Fish TacosBlackened Fish Tacos and Lobster Tacos. Since my family is obsessed Tzatziki sauce (we eat it with everything!) I thought why not make fish tacos with a Greek twist. Bake them in the oven or make them in the air fryer! Directions provided both ways.


Making the Greek yogurt fish taco sauce (Tzatziki) from scratch is easy and perfect for fresh summer cucumbers and herbs! Partnering with Stonyfield, my favorite organic yogurt brand to create this easy yogurt sauce with their Stonyfield Plain 0% Fat Greek Yogurt but their Whole Milk Greek Plain would be great too. I used spearmint and dill from my garden, but you can try fresh chives or parsley in place of the mint. The whole dish is ready in under 30 minutes, if you use your air fryer even quicker!

Rather than using corn tortillas, I went with flour tortillas although either can be used. The fish tacos have a simple slaw and lemon wedged for squeezing over the top.
