Mommy Mondays - Recipe Rescue: Fish Tacos

Monday, June 10, 2013

Hey, remember once upon a time when I used to do these posts?

Guess what?  They're baaaaaccck!

Now that the sickness has subsided and summer is here, I have time to enjoy my family and really get back into the swing of things.  The previous three months I did a lot of NOT cooking.  It was soup, bread or take out.  My husband really wasn't a fan.  But now I'm 100% better than before so I'm trying to cook more often.  Saturday was Cohen's first "soccer practice" -- remember he's 2 so it was a group of toddlers running around like crazy.  So we got home just in time for lunch and I needed to cook something up quick.   Cohen and my husband both requested fish sticks and tater tots but I wanted to add a little more green to mine.  I decided to take my sticks and make fish tacos with them!  Super easy and actually pretty yummy! 

 My ranch came out a little fast as you can see..

Here's what you need:
--Frozen fish sticks (Our fav is Gorton's -- but it's your preference!)
--Flour tortillas
--Lettuce (I used yummy organic romaine!)
--Shredded Cheese
--Ranch dressing

The process is super easy and while the sticks cook you can prep the goodies for the tacos.
1.  Cook the fish sticks according to package.
2.  Once fish sticks are cooked and crispy, place 3 in the middle of your tortilla.
3.  Dress up your taco how you like it and enjoy!

These fish tacos are perfect for lunch or dinner, especially on those nights when you're in a bind as to what you should cook for your family.  If you have a picky eater like I do, another great thing is you can give that kiddo the sticks while the others enjoy the tacos without really wasting anything.  

Let's be honest, we all have nights where we just don't feel like cooking so a quick, easy and yummy recipe is what I'm talking about!

Happy Cooking! :)


  1. I think I will make these the next time the kids want fish sticks. Yumm!

  2. My youngest son loves fish sticks. Will have to try this for him.
