Mini fish taquitos

Fish is a great source of protein, low in saturated fat and can be made very tasty. This recipe is made from Basa fillets. I bought a bag of Basa fillets in the frozen section for $10.00 and it had 12 fillets in it. This means it is good for 4 dinners!

I adapted this recipe from a recipe I got from Chef’s plate. The kids love to scoop the avocado out of the skin and then mash it in the bowl.

Ingredients needed:

  • Basa fillets 3-4, thawed from frozen
  • Small tortillas (8-10)
  • Fajita spice or chili spice (Amount depends on how spicy your family likes it! I use 1 Tbsp for all fillets)
  • Sweet potato – 1 medium
  • Avocado – 2
  • Cherry tomatoes – 1 cup
  • Oil for pan
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Wash, peel and dice sweet potato. Heat oil in a pan on medium and add sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring every minute until soft, approximately 10 minutes. Set aside in bowl.
  2. While your sweet potato’s are cooking, cut the avocado’s in half and scoop the inside into a bowl. Remove pits and mash with a fork. Cut cherry tomatoes in half and add to avocados. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Using the same pan, add basa fillet’s. Sprinkle half of fajita or chili spice on top. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip. Sprinkle other half of spice on top and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Take off heat and break fish up with spatula. Put in bowl.
  4. Take each tortilla, put a small handful of sweet potato and a small handful of fish in and roll: First fold the two sides in and then roll up (if you don’t roll with sides folded in, the contents will fall out).
  5. Add rolled taco’s, seam side down to a heated pan to crisp the tortillas and seal your roll.
  6. Serve with avocado and tomato mixture for a tasty Mexican Fish dinner!img_3082.jpgIMG_3102
