I'm posting this recipe by popular request. It is an easy peasy recipe using readily available ingredients. Give it a try! You'll be surprised at this new and delicious way to use fish sticks.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 frozen fish sticks (use your favorite brand) or 10 fillets (use your favorite brand)
  • coleslaw mix (just buy the shredded cabbage and carrot mix in your local grocer)
  • 1 diced roma tomato
  • steamed tortilla (I prefer steamed corn tortillas but flour tortillas are delicious, too)
  • ranch dressing


  1. Cook the fish sticks according to package directions ( I prefer the Gorton's Beer Batter brand) but use whatever you have.
  2. Mix about two cups of the shredded slaw mix with the diced roma tomato and toss until combined.
  3. Place a fish stick or two with a couple of pinches of the cabbage/tomato mixture with a big squirt of (about 1 TB) of Ranch dressing into a steamed corn or flour tortilla.
  4. A squirt of lime juice gives them a great fresh taste if you have some.
  5. Fold it in half and enjoy.

This is the kind of fish taco I'm talking about! With way too many leftover flour tortillas AND fishsticks, this recipe was perfect. I used Gorton's "Premium Tilapia" fishsticks (I couldn't really discern a difference between these and any others I've tasted) and had to chop up some pre-bagged iceberg salad-mix, but it worked just deliciously. I also added a scoop of chow-chow to each taco, to stand in for the tartar sauce. So easy, so fast, so.. thank you!

On a table in a flash and not bad at all! I used Baja Sauce.

These are so good, so easy and so quick--what more could you want on a week night! Used shredded lettuce as had no coleslaw mix, added minced onions and some sliced black olives----turned out great. Also mixed the ranch dressing with some salsa.
