My family loves taco night. As a matter of fact, I love taco night too. We usually have it once a week during the busy school year. While chicken and beef tacos are very popular, my family prefers fish tacos.
Sometimes fish isn’t the easiest thing to cook. But I have a little secret I am going to let you in on. I use fish nuggets that are baked in the oven in under 20 minutes. They come right out of a frozen package. Gasp! Yes, it’s true. My family’s favorite tacos are made with fish sticks.
Trader Joe’s has several kinds of frozen fish that are perfect to use for tacos. I prefer their fish nuggets, but you can use any type of fish sticks that you or your family prefers. It’s all about personal preference. There are so many brands out there, so choose your favorite.
Same thing goes with the salsa. I prefer to use either corn salsa or a pineapple salsa, as it goes well with fish. You can purchase so many different types of salsas in a jar or containers in the refrigerated section. They all add lots of color to the tacos too.
The other ingredient you will need is guacamole. When time allows I make this simple guacamole, but feel free to purchase some already prepared guacamole at your grocery store. It can be found in the prepared foods section of the produce department. If you are feeling really lazy, mashed avocado with a little salt works well on these tacos.
These fish stick tacos are so easy to put together! Once I heat up the fish sticks and corn tortillas, my kids like to make their own. While guacamole and corn salsa are our favorite toppings, the possibilities are endless. Cabbage, cheese, sour cream and chopped tomatoes are all things that can be put on a fish taco. I guarantee if you try making these tacos, your family will want them once a week!
