Fish Tacos

I got this recipe from Trader Joe's.  They were giving a sample of these the other day and they were delicious.  So delicious that I bought the ingredients and made them two days in a row.  So go ahead and enjoy your Lenten penance with some Fish Tacos on Friday.  This serves 4.

Battered Fish Nuggets (I highly recommend TJ's, but if you don't have one nearby, you could always use fish sticks or even popcorn shrimp.  Eyeball the measurement, as in how many nuggets/fish sticks will fill you up for a serving)
2 cups cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup purple onion, finely diced (this measures out to about a 1/4 an onion.  Feel free to skip this step if you don't like purple onions or don't have one on hand.  It still tasted great when I made my second round without this)
Taco shells or corn tortillas
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup salsa verde

Prepare the fish as directed.

Meanwhile mix the dressing by combining the sour cream, salsa verde and purple onion.  Stir in the cabbage. 

Cut or tear apart the fish, fill your tacos or tortillas with your ingredients and enjoy! 


  1. Sounds really easy and really good. You could use corn tortillas instead of taco shells if you can get good ones at a local store.

  2. It was ridiculously easy. You really could add a bunch of stuff to this-- beans, lime, spicy jack cheese. The sauce is so good.
