It’s Fish Taco night!  This announcement is always greeted with cheers and excitement at my house  - we {HEART} tacos!  This week I decided to switch up my usual recipe so that I could incorporate some extra veggies into our tacos and guess what?  The boys and Chris both said they were THE BEST FISH TACOS EVER!  Reece said, and I quote, “I like how you put all this extra stuff in here” as he’s pointing to the roasted corn – LOL!  Chris said ” Trish – these are fantastic!”  I just nodded my head.  Of course they are honey.  Would I feed you anything less than fantastic?

Bryce and I took care of the shopping earlier in the week after speech class.  He, of course, brought “real puppy” along {yes – that is the puppy’s name}.  Real Puppy was accidentally washed with a blue crayon last weekend so he has a slight blue tint to him now…I told Bryce that it just added character :)  We found everything we needed, plus a whole lot more!

We loaded up on veggies, picked up some Van de Kamp’s Fish Tenders for the tacos  and headed home.  I was so excited to try something new with our fish tacos!  Fish tacos make a regular appearance around here so I was a little nervous about changing it but I am SO glad I did!  I added tons of flavor to our fish tacos by roasting a bag of Birds Eye Super Sweet Corn.  I poured the bag onto a baking sheet and threw it under the broiler for a few minutes to add some beautiful color to these amazing tacos.    I added tomatoes, onion, lime, cilantro, and red bell pepper to really pack in an awesome flavor punch.  Anytime I’m serving my family dinner that is as beautiful as this – I know I’m doing the right thing!

These Fish Tacos are loaded with fresh flavors from the Roasted Corn Salsa and the creamy avocado sauce.  The cole slaw mix and crispy fish tenders provide a perfectly satisfying crunch.

Because Fish Tacos are a weeknight meal I like to take a few shortcuts in the kitchen to speed up the process.  My family loves Van de Kamps Crispy Fish Tenders and they make taco night even easier!   While the Crispy Fish Tenders are baking I got my taco-building station all set up.

When the fish is ready – so am I!

Layer on the goodness and pretty soon I have a platter full of fish tacos – fiesta time!  I am so not joking when I say it was hard to get these pictures because the boys kept putting their hands in the way trying to get to the tacos…poor things were starving ;)

  Finally, it’s time to eat!  The boys just loved the fish tacos and I’m a happy mama when my boys clean their plates :)

  7. Oh my goodness, these look so amazing. So colorful! Great photography. :) I really like fish tacos, but for me, the sauce can make or break them. The avocado/sour cream mixture on these sounds good. I’ve also tried another sauce with mayo, chili powder, and lime juice, which is my favorite combo.
