One of my wife’s favorite dishes is fish tacos; whenever we go to a restaurant where they are served, I can count on her ordering them. Of course, this makes me happy because I usually get to taste some of hers. I rarely order them myself, though, because they are one food item that tastes great when done well, but terribly disappointing when done poorly. I have had some decent fish tacos, and I’ve had some terrible fish tacos. And when I say terrible, I mean awful.  Gross. Disgusting. Pick your adjective and fill in the blank.
Here is my version of fish tacos, which I hope you will agree does not live up to any of the previously mentioned negative descriptions. I call my recipe “Simply Awesome Extra Crunchy Fish Tacos.”

Try these delicious and easy to make fish tacos!

Here’s what you need to start with:


I’m too lazy to make fresh tortillas, but most store-bought tortillas taste like cardboard. A good alternative is to buy tortillas that are half-cooked, then cook them the rest of the way at home. They only take about 20-30 seconds per side, and the difference in taste is HUGE. Here is one brand I’ve found that is consistently good, and is sold in many of the major grocery chains: Guerrero® Tortillas de Harina Fresquiricas, Fajita.

Heat up a frying pan, cook up a few, then place them in the oven in a covered dish until ready to serve.

Fish (I like white, flaky fish, such as Cod or Haddock)—about a half pound per person
