Easy Fish Tacos

I have been away from home for a couple of days with my daughter Angela. We drove to Tulsa on some business on Thursday, then got back to Little Rock late Friday just in time to prepare dinner for the family. We made these Easy Fish Tacos, and had a tasty dinner that the children loved on the table in a very short time.

Easy Fish Tacos
1 (24 ounce) package parfried frozen catfish fillets (or other fish of choice)
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
3 green onions, chopped
fresh cilantro, chopped
2 avocados, sliced
1 (4.25 ounce) can black olives
1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheese
1 (13 ounce) package whole wheat flour tortillas
chipotle cheddar dressing

Prepare the fish by baking according to package directions. While the fish is baking, chop the tomato, green onions, red onions, cilantro, and avocado.
Warm the tortillas according to package directions. Tear the baked fish in pieces. Place fish pieces on a warmed tortilla, then dress with the chopped vegetables, cheese and chipotle dressing as desired. Serves 4.

We used Schwan's catfish fillets that were nice and crispy and baked in 25 minutes. They need to be torn in pieces for the tacos.

Add the chopped vegetables as desired to the taco. I would have added some spinach too, but it was late and we had to go with what was in the refrigerator.

This is the dressing we used, and it is super for fish tacos.

This meal was on the table in only about 30 minutes; it was fast, healthy and delicious.


  1. I've never had a fish taco before, but I've wanted to try them. I always thought they'd be difficult to make, but yours looks very doable! Thanks for sharing the great recipe :)

  2. These sound so good. I love ordering fish tacos when we go out but never seem to be brave enough to make them at home. Gotta find your dressing though. That sounds amazing. Thanks for linking up to Hunk of Meat Monday.

  3. Fish tacos are one of my favorite meals. I've never heard of that dressing before...it sounds like the perfect complement to fish tacos. YUM!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week end and come back soon!

  5. Those fish tacos look excellent! I never know what kind of fish to get. What brand did you use. Those look yummy!

  6. Gina, These were made with a bag of Schwan's frozen catfish fillets that were ready to bake. Very crispy plus quick and easy.

  7. I love your site and have used quite a few recipes and just altered them to be gluten free. I just have a comment and suggestion I'd like to share. I make easy fish tacos also...I use a couple pieces of cod or mahi mahi from Whole Foods or Trader Joes and prepare similiarly but mine are not breaded. You mentioned this as a "healthy meal". It'd be much healthier with fish that's not been farmed and is not breaded and just as yummy!

    1. Thanks, Roxanna! So glad you enjoy the recipes. You are so right about the fish, that would increase the health benefits of the meal. Many of my recipes don't take into account any special circumstances, so glad you have been able to modify and still enjoy.
