Fish Tacos are a fun way to get the whole family to enjoy seafood, even the kids!


1/4 cup Bread crumbs, whole wheat
1/4 cup Cornmeal (yellow)
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
8 small tortilla(s) Tortilla, corn
341 gm Flounder (fillet, cut into 1-inch wide strips, or white fish of choice)
2 large egg Egg
1/4 cup Partly skimmed milk, lactose free, 2% M.F.
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/2 tbsp Olive oil
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (seeds and ribs removed, cut into 1/8-inch thick strips)
1 head Lettuce, romaine
1 fruit Lime (cut into wedges, for serving)


Step 1: Preheat oven to 300°F. Stir together breadcrumbs, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a medium shallow bowl; set aside.

Step 2: Arrange tortillas on a baking sheet in overlapping rows; set aside.

Step 3: Beat eggs and milk together in a small bowl. Dip fish strips into the egg mixture, then coat them with the breadcrumb mixture. Transfer to a plate.

Step 4: Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet until hot but not smoking. Fry fish strips until golden, about 1 minute per side. Transfer fish to baking sheet with tortillas and keep warm in the oven.

Step 5: Heat remaining oil in a saute pan until hot, but not smoking. Add bell pepper, cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes.

Step 6: Divide the fish, bell peppers, and lettuce among tortillas. Serve with lime wedges and tartar sauce, if desired.



Let the kids personalize their own taco by laying out a variety of toppings in small bowls on the kitchen table; they can build their own taco how they like it and maybe even try something new!
