Last Tuesday I mentioned how, during Lent, I ask myself each Tuesday, “What are we going to eat on Friday?” So starting this week, I plan to share my ideas with you.

Fish is both versatile and nutritious. In our home, we have it a few times a month, especially during Lent.

We eat it grilled with salsas, or, as in this case, breaded the way my boys like it.

Breaded fish is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, bakes easily, and can be accompanied with a salad or served on tostadas or in tacos.

To save time I always like to have one or two packages of breaded fish fillets, or breaded fish sticks, in my freezer. That way I can make dinner in minutes.

Chipotle salsa accompanies these tacos perfectly, with its smoky flavor thanks to both the chipotle and the grilled tomatoes, and gives the dish more depth.

Last Friday I made these Easy Breaded Fish Tacos with Chipotle Salsa and they were yummy! My kids gobbled up everything on their plates.

The salsa was wonderful. We made a lot, so we still had some left over, but not for long. My husband and I finished it last night with tortilla chips, it was a treat!

  • 2-3 limes

For the Chipotle Salsa

In a blender or food processor, mix roasted veggies, chipotle peppers, and salt. The mixture should be slightly chunky. Set aside.

Chop baked fish and warm up tortillas.

To assemble tacos, divide the fish pieces among the tortillas and top with cabbage or lettuce, chipotle salsa, and lime juice.

Enjoy!

Funny thing is my husband and I discovered fish tacos this summer after so long in here! And became totally addicted. This recipe sounds yummy, the chipotle sauce sounds great. Will try!

Que ricos estos tacos de pescado empanizado. Estoy pensando que la lechuga podría ser un buen sustituto del repollo 🤔
