Versatile Kid-friendly Fish Tacos

Too many cooks spoil the soup is accurate, though if I had girls, I might feel differently about it.

My dinner strategy...
I try to make dinner at least 4 times a week (sports schedules are too crazy so we eat out sometimes...) At least 2 nights I try to make a nice big meal and the other 2 are less fancy, easy favorites - but all include fruit, veg, protein, and filler (carbs) - with 3 teenage boys + the hub, they need filler (I usually don't eat it and they don't know why... oh, boys)

Here's one of my easy day recipes...

Fish - frozen, grilled or breaded, depends on the kids
Tortillas - soft taco flour is what we use
CHIPOTLE MAYO - love this condiment!
Add-ons - lettuce, tomato, cheese?

Cook fish, spread mayo and fill the tortillas. Quick & easy yum!

Suggested Sides - can go inside or outside tacos - spanish rice, refried beans, sour cream, guac, salsa, also good as nachos - we love Mexican night!

VARIATIONS (instead of fish):
Chicken Strips
Popcorn Shrimp
Boneless Wings

Then there's also...
FISH DOGS or BURGERS, et al - use hot dog/hamburger buns instead of tortillas and change up the condiments and sides

Hold on! What about Italian?
Put protein of choice on rolls or garlic bread, spread with marinara, sprinkle with parmesan or mozzarella - BAM! Italian Sliders!

So I really gave you, like 25 recipes! I'm the Mistress of Improv when it comes to dinner! Enjoy!


  1. I've been wrapping all kinds of things in tortillas, why not fish?

    I love those Mission tortillas with the high fiber, low carbs. They cost a little more, but they make for fast dinners and I save money and cholesterol from the drive-through.

    1. my hub likes those tortillas too. fish is a great healthy food!

  2. My mom makes amazing fish tacos. I love the idea of the flavored mayo!!

    1. I bet. Moms are usually great cooks! (except me...)


Thanks for stopping by the House!
