you're going to have to trust me that these fish tacos are dinner worthy. i love to make all-from-scratch beer battered fish tacos with fresh cod, but these quick fish tacos are almost as good and just perfect for a last minute weeknight dinner. when faced with a dinner deadline and no options, turn to these quick fish tacos. the yummy homemade tartar sauce brightens and really flavors these fish tacos, and it can be made with a handful of ingredients and the help of the nearest 4 year old. this recipe is made quick and easy by using frozen fish sticks from the freezer. this meal comes together in the 13 minutes it takes the fish sticks to bake! frozen breaded shrimp also make yummy tacos this way.
quick fish tacos and homemade tartar sauce
an original recipe by rachelle
12 fish sticks
12 corn tortillas
1 recipe homemade tartar sauce
shredded cabbage or lettuce
preheat oven and start chopping cabbage or lettuce and halving limes. warm tortillas in a plug-in veggie steamer, with a wet paper towel wrapped around them in the microwave, or in hot oil. (go here for details on making harder taco shells with oil, but these are best with a steamed tortilla.)
put fish sticks in the oven and mix up the tartar sauce. serve tacos in shells with a layer of shredded cabbage or lettuce, a piece of fish, a big drizzle of sauce and a squeeze of lime.
homemade tartar sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet relish
2 Tablespoons ketchup (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
any leftovers make a great spread for sandwiches.
*use a high quality fish stick for the best tacos. costco carries some made from whole alaskan pollock fillets that i like to use.
