Chef Monkey's Fish Burittos

Okay, so I have been hesitant to post this entry because it uses (egad) frozen fish and pre-bagged coleslaw. It is one of those meals that I have on hand if I need to throw something together in minutes. This meal is one of the Monkey's favorites (along with Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi's and Pesto Salmon Salad Nicoise) and he can make the recipe on his own with very little supervision. The recipe is simple and yummy.

Crunchy Fish Burritos with Citrus Slaw served with spiced black beans and sliced avocado on the side

  • breaded frozen fish (I get mine at Whole Foods, $7.99 for a 12 oz box that feeds our family of 4)
  • pre-chopped cabbage or coleslaw mix
  • 2 oranges or some pineapple or both
  • 1/4 cup of orange/mango juice
  • 1TB lowfat mayo (if desired- adds a touch of creaminess)
  • tartar sauce
  • multigrain tortillas
getting fish ready for oven
Making the Citrus Slaw:

slice the oranges
add orange to cabbage mixture
add 1/4 cup of orange/mango juice and mayo if using
mix everything together
put cabbage mixture in center of tortilla (we toast ours)
add fish
2 fish per taco
add a little tartar sauce
fold tortilla and cut down the middle
eat it up!
