Double Decker Fish Tacos

Double Decker Fish Tacos #festfoods

We all love tacos {I know I do!}, and one way of celebrating tacos is with a coastal version using fish! Although traditional fish tacos are topped with slaw, I wanted to bring you the Wisconsin version: Double Decker taco shells {hard shell + refried beans + soft shell} and tender, meaty haddock, topped with shredded cheese, tomatoes, onions, olives and sour cream. Something’s fishy in here, and I mean that in a VERY tasty way!

Double Decker Fish Tacos


  • 6 crunchy taco shells
  • 6 soft taco shells
  • ½ cup refried beans
  • 1 tsp. canola oil
  • 1 lb. fresh haddock filets
  • Dash salt and black pepper
  • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • Optional toppings: Diced green chilies, black olives, salsa, diced yellow onion, diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to a low broil. Place crunchy and soft taco shells on a baking sheet. Broil 60-90 seconds on each side, until toasted. Spread refried beans on each soft taco shell. Place crunchy taco shell on top and fold soft taco shell up to make a double decker taco shell with the refried beans in between. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet set on medium-high heat. Season haddock filet with salt, pepper and smoked paprika on skinned side. Place in hot pan, skin side down first, and sear for 2 minutes on each side, until haddock flakes easily with a fork. Peel skin off and discard.
  3. Fill each double decker taco shell with cooked haddock. Top with desired toppings.
