Swimmingly Swell Tacos

I always assumed that making homemade fish tacos involved some overly complicated recipe and a million different ingredients. But there's an easy way to make fish tacos if you have a microwave and an oven. And if you have a good fish place that will fry your fish for you, all you really need is a microwave. I know a lot of Fred Meyer or Top Food locations have deep fryers, so just ask for cod or halibut, depending on personal preference, deep fried.

Fried cod or halibut fish (fried fish from your grocery store, or bake frozen fish fillets in your oven following the instructions on the box).
Medium flour tortilla
1 Tablespoon of tarter sauce
Grated cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, and sour cream, as desired

First, cook the fish, or rewarm the fish in the microwave.
Next, heat your tortilla in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
Then, spread about 1 Tablespoon of tarter sauce on the tortilla.
Then, place warm fish on one half of the tortilla. Add cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, salsa, and/or sour cream, however you desire.
Finally, fold the tortilla over in half, to form the shape of a tortilla.

Now that I know how easy it is to make fish tacos, I don't know why I didn't try them earlier. Plus, if you buy the fish and tarter sauce when it's on sale, you can make these for pretty inexpensively. Now, how's that for dorm food? I say DELICIOUS!

  1. Fish tacos rock! Good idea to have them fry the fish for you - my market will do that too - never thought to make tacos with them.
