Sometimes I feel like I have a taste pallet of an 8-year-old because I love fish sticks and chicken fries as much my son. Sometimes, when it’s just the two of us at dinner time, I just bake us some fish sticks and fries and we happily share it. Who said that it’s just for kids?
Fish sticks are also more than just for fish and chips or dipping into ketchup. (Hope I’m not the only one to dip my crispy fish sticks in ketchup.) Did you know that crispy fish sticks are amazing in tacos? It’s a great combination of textures when a crispy fish fillet is wrapped in a soft, flour tortilla. We often take advantage of the fun “Taco Tuesday” tradition and if you do as well, try FISH TACOS!
These tacos that I’m sharing today are made even more amazing with the addition of spicy cucumber mango relish, avocado, and a cool crema.
Recently, I’ve been introduced to a new brand of seafood called Young’s Seafood. They are actually only new to USA. This is a British company who are now sharing their fish expertise with us, in US. They had a wide variety of products available to try, ranging from raw seafood to prepared meals.
I had a pleasure of trying the Cod Fillet Fingers and Beer Battered Cod Fillet. Next to salmon, cod is my favorite fish and I gotta say, they nailed it! The fish was firm and flaky with perfect cod flavor. The batter was beautifully crispy and just the right amount. Many fish sticks that we’ve tried in the past had batter that was way too thick with a tiny fish amount inside. This is not the case here, it’s a thin coating of crisp batter with a big, juicy cod on the inside.
Biting into this taco is a fantastic experience for your taste buds. It’s not just the combination of textures, but the combination of flavors too that makes it so pleasing. The crispy fish stick meets a soft tortilla and cooling cucumber and mango. The sweet, salty, and spicy combination between the crispy fish and mango relish hits all taste areas at one. Avocado and avocado cilantro crema serves as a perfect creamy cooling agent for the chili spice.
