Fish Taco Bites Recipe

Fish Taco Bites Recipe

I think these appetizers are better than full-size fish tacos I’ve had as an entree. Enjoy the creamy salsa drizzle not only on these bites, but also on other Mexican dishes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Dash salt
  • 12 frozen breaded fish sticks
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 36 tortilla chip scoops
  • 1-1/2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 3/4 cup cubed avocado
  • 3/4 cup chopped seeded tomato
  • Lime wedges and additional minced fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1. In a blender, combine the salsa, cream cheese, 1 tablespoon lime juice, cilantro, honey and salt. Cover and process until smooth; set aside.
  • 2. Place fish sticks on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with half of the taco seasoning. Turn fish sticks over; sprinkle with remaining taco seasoning. Bake 7-9 minutes longer or until crisp.
  • 3. Meanwhile, place tortilla chips on a serving platter. In a small bowl, combine the coleslaw mix, avocado, tomato, remaining lime juice and 1/2 cup salsa mixture. Spoon into chips.
  • 4. Cut each fish stick into three pieces. Place a fish stick piece in each chip; top each with about 1/2 teaspoon salsa mixture. Garnish with lime wedges and additional cilantro. Yield: 3 dozen.
