“Real cooks” who are never too busy to whip up some incredible creation from scratch, those who don’t suffer from end of long day can’t be bothered syndrome, and snooty foodies can look away now.
For the rest of us!
A cheat’s recipe to whip something tasty up when perhaps you’re a little hungover and just want to chill out followed by a Netflix marathon, yes I’m still watching. Stop judging me, Netflix!
Charles very lazy fish tacos! are all of the goodness, none of the hassle of deep frying anything…NADA!
Rich, zingy, crunchy, fresh flavours, all ready to be wrapped into that soft, warm corn taco and be devoured.
What makes them so easy, you ask?
Fish. Sticks. Baby.
We love Trident Seafoods Ultimate Fish Sticks : the exterior is very crispy and golden, and when we pulled them apart, we saw they were filled with flaky pollock.
To serve two you’ll need:
10 fish sticks
Quarter of a cabbage, shredded or finely sliced
Salsa : 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes – Half a red onion – 2 tbsp vinegar – 10 jalapeño slices – Juice of 1 lime – Salt
Spicy mayo : we love Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Mayo, making the recipe truly lazy…
Or make it : Quarter cup of mayo – Quarter cup of ketchup – Some Sriracha – Juice of 1 lime – 1 tsp Smoked paprika
To get started, pop your fish sticks in the oven. Meanwhile slice up your cabbage and prep your toppings.
For the salsa : add all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse a couple times until chopped. Don’t puree.
Immediately tip into a sieve or colander to drain.
Heat your tortillas (no oil) and place onto a towel covered plate, then cover them up with another napkin.
Serve and let people build their own tacos.
And that’s a wrap, everyone!
