Fish Tacos with Baja Cream Sauce

If you’re a mom (and really even if you’re not) weeknights tend to be so busy.

Activities, homework, LIFE – there’s just so much to do and there isn’t a lot of time to stand in the kitchen for hours on end.

I love preparing made from scratch recipes for my family, but every once in awhile, when I’m short on time I need to come up with an easier version.

Let’s introduce these awesome Fish Tacos with a Baja Cream Sauce, spicy, savory goodness.

Now, if you have lots of time on your hands, feel free to beer batter your fish on your own. I do sometimes… but usually only on weekends.

But if you are looking for a super easy, delicious weeknight dinner that takes less than 30 minutes to put together with a few short cuts… this really is it.

It’s delicious, easy and filling. Plus… tacos!

The perfect addition to Taco Tuesday!

Ingredients
  

For the Baja Sauce:

  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper seeded and finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley finely chopped

For Fish Tacos:

  • 1 box of frozen crispy fish tenders we used Van de Kamp’s
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Capers
  • Avocado diced
  • tomatoes diced
  • shredded mexican or taco cheese
  • Soft Corn or Flour Tortillas

Instructions
 

  • For the Baja Sauce:Combine all ingredients. Set aside. (I put mine in the fridge while I prepared the rest – gives it a chance to marry all the wonderful flavors). We also made some early for photos and then again at dinner and wow… the sauce was SO much more flavorful at dinner time (2 hours later)
  • For Fish Tacos:Prepare 1-2 fish tenders per person (per taco) as directed on the back of the package. (this took 20 minutes for us) When finished, slice the fish up anyway you’d like to put it in the taco.
  • Lay a soft tortilla on a plate. Place shredded lettuce on the tortilla. Then layer the capers, avocado and tomatoes.
  • Top with the cooked fish tenders. And then drizzle the Baja sauce over all of it.
  • Eat & Enjoy!

I had fish tacos in Hawaii that were amazing and ever since I got back, I've been dreaming about them. This is such an ingenius and quick way to make them - using frozen fish! I'm always hesitant at buying fresh fish because I either buy bad cuts or I mangle them during the cooking process. This way, I'll be guaranteed delicious fish. Thanks for sharing, Nicole!

These look and sound fantastic! And not only did the sauce make me drool, but love that you used Van de Kamp's Fish Tenders- I haven't had those since I was a kid, and love them! Great recipe ;-)

Diana, I switch it up all the time. Sometimes we do unbreaded fish, but this time I wanted some good breaded fish and Van De Kamp was what I reached for at the store. I remembered how wonderful they are, and just knew they would make this recipe perfect. My kids devoured these and I highly suspect it was due to the Van De Kamp's. LOL Thank you!
