Fish Stick Tacos:

  • 16 Gorton's Panko Breaded Fish Sticks with Wild Caught Alaska Pollock
  • 8 Mission extra thin corn tortillas
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper more/less to taste
  • cooking spray

Fresh Taco Slaw:

  • 2 cups purple cabbage sliced thinly
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 3 green onions, white and green parts chopped
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeños (about two tbsp chopped)
  • 2 tbsp non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp pickled jalapeño juice from the pickled jalapeño jar
  • juice from one lime about 2 tbsp
  • sea salt & pepper, to taste I use about 1/4 tsp of each


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 

Fresh Taco Slaw:

  1. Add sliced cabbage, shredded carrots, chopped pickled jalapeños, chopped cilantro, and chopped green onions to a medium bowl. 

  2. In a small bowl add greek yogurt, pickled jalapeño juice, and the juice of one lime. Whisk together thoroughly with a fork. Salt & Pepper to taste.

  3. Add the greek yogurt mix in with the vegetables and stir together to coat everything. Salt and Pepper to taste. Set aside. 

    Optional Tip: IF you'd like to make the taco slaw ahead of time. Place sliced cabbage into a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes in the sink. Then, lay it on some paper towels and dab the cabbage to dry it completely. This helps draw out the extra moisture that cabbage holds and will help it keep longer and not water down the slaw. 

Fish Sticks Tacos:

  1. In a small bowl add garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cumin, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper into a small bowl. Stir together well.

  2. Spray a sheet pan lightly with cooking spray. Place 16 fish sticks onto the sheet, sprinkle with seasoning mix, spray tops with a little cooking spray, flip, and repeat. Place in 450 degree preheated oven for 18 minutes. Flipping half way through. 

  3. While the fish sticks are baking, heat up 8 corn tortillas with your preferred method.

  4. When the fish sticks are done, build each taco by placing two chopped up fish sticks on top of each tortilla and then pile the taco slaw on top. I use a heaping 1/4 cup on each taco, but you can add more or less. You will more than likely have a little leftover to enjoy on the side with each taco. 

  5. Enjoy!
