Quick and easy Fish Stick Tacos
Hey, fish tacos. Lookin’ good. Yes, I just cat-called my dinner.
Just last night I was having a conversation with my father in law about the types of meals that I like to cook.
They can’t have more than 2 steps (especially on weeknights) and they must be delicious. To achieve this, I look for ways to work more efficiently in the kitchen.
Sometimes I change a recipe and other times I use a convenience item (yes you pay a little bit more but I think those minutes I saved more than makes up for it!).
I ran into my girlfriend, Trudy, at the store a few weeks ago. We chatted about fast meal ideas.
She mentioned making fish tacos with fish sticks and I slapped my forehead. Totally genius.
My kids LOVE fish sticks! So I stole her idea (which she stole from a friend so it’s ok…) and decided to give them a try.
This fish stick taco recipe took me hardly any time to make, taste delicious and are full of healthy goodness. I call that a weeknight dinner win!
Eat Smart Salad Kits make dinner so easy
The reason they are full of healthy goodness is thanks to these Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits. These are kind of amazing.
Each of the 7 varieties contain superfoods and is a complete salad meal. They come in a variety of flavors and are so tasty! I love a good salad kit for lunch.
And these kits get it right. They all have a little bit of crunch or texture that makes this a legit salad, one that you WANT to eat.
But I love them even more when they can cut out time from meal prep. Did you know that it is National Nutrition Month?

- Frozen fish sticks, cooked
- Eat Smart Southwest Salad Kit
- Fresh limes
- Cheddar cheese
- Cotija cheese
I knew the Southwest Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kit was the way to go.
The Southwest kit starts with five superfoods: savoy cabbage, red cabbage, red radishes, carrots and kale.
The package also contains dried corn and tortilla strips (that provide the perfect crunch!), some cheddar cheese and a chipotle dressing. All of those things make this perfect to fill a taco.
Bake up your favorite brand of frozen fish sticks and put these bad boys together.
Lay out your corn tortillas and add a handful of the Southwest salad mix.
Top it with 2 fish sticks.
To bring in more Mexican flavor I used a squeeze of fresh lime, some cilantro and cotija chese (it’s so good and salty!).
The crunch of the tortilla strips and corn is perfect in these fish stick tacos!
And I finished off my taco with a little bit of the dressing.
YOU GUYS! These are SO good!
If you’re not in to the fish stick idea, that’s totally cool. Just use another kind of fish. Or even ground beef or chicken.
Using this salad kit brings tons of flavor and everything but the meat!
You can also skip the taco all together and make a fish stick salad!
It really got me thinking about the other Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits.
I want to work this Wild Greens and Quinoa into some sort of stir fry…My meals just got a whole lot easier and healthier too! This is my kind of product!
These fish tacos with fish sticks make a great at home lunch idea for moms or a great weeknight dinner for the whole family!
Just have each person make the taco according to their taste preferences and your work is done!
