Fish stick tacos! Easy and delicious!
When you’re a parent and your kids love plain fish stick and you need a little something more… these fish stick tacos are going to save the day.
Even if you’re not a parent, you can really save some time and prep work while still ending up with a delicious meal starting with fish sticks.
What’s in these fish stick tacos?
These fish stick tacos rest on top of an easy yet tasty slaw mixture than includes avocado and corn as well as juices from lemon and lime. Why both? Well, lemon is a common compliment to fish and lime is a familiar pairing with taco flavorings. So together you’re getting the best of both worlds.
These tacos also have a few slices of poblano peppers. Poblano peppers have a complimentary flavor similar to a bell pepper but offer a mild kick as well. Perfect for tacos! So don’t skip these.
Finally, things get topped off with a simple creamy seasoned sauce. You can use mayonnaise or sour cream or a half and half mixture of both if you can’t decide.
Everything gets wrapped up in either one large soft tortilla or you can use two smaller ones if you don’t want to have to man-handle your taco. A big, stuffed taco though, is kind of fun and a bit more unique so if you’re serving guests, they may enjoy the surprise giant taco presentation. You choose.
Lower your carbs — make a fish taco bowl!
If you’re looking to cut carbs, go ahead and leave off the soft tortilla. You can serve everything layered in a bowl. You’ll still have a bit of carbs from the fish stick breading which is just enough. This makes a great lunch or dinner if you’re trying to eat healthier.
What kind of fish sticks work best with this recipe?
Really any fish sticks! You can opt for the beer battered fish sticks. Those are really excellent but even the most basic fish sticks work well and taste great with this recipe. So go with whatever brand or style fish you prefer, you can’t go wrong.
What taco seasoning is best?
I love Blackstone Taco & Fajita Seasoning. It’s a great blend of Mexican spices and it is salted so it’s simple to turn into a yummy sauce by just adding sour cream or mayonnaise.
The Perfect Sauce Drizzle
Here’s my favorite sauce hack. Take your sauce and spoon it into a plastic sandwich bag. Cut a small piece off one of the corners of the bag to create a hole. Use this to dispense your sauce in a pretty, consistently thick, zig-zag design.
