Fish and Potato Tacos

Potatoes USA - Fish and Potato Tacos

My Fish and Potato Taco is unique because I used fresh potatoes instead of the usual cilantro and onion toppings. The crispy fish and potatoes work perfectly with the sweet corn and warm tortilla! The Asian-inspired dressing is an absolute game-charger because it’s a mix of salty and sweet, with a hint of tartness from the balsamic vinegar. I can’t wait for you to try it!

  • 1 pc - Green/Red Bell Pepper (cut in tiny pcs)

Procedure for Breaded Fish:

Putting the Tacos together:

  • Fry the diced potatoes, bell peppers and onions in some oil. Make sure they are completely cooked. Best if the potatoes are soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.
  • Boil the sweet corn kernels until cooked. You may also buy pre-cooked roasted whole corn kernels and quickly heat them in butter for extra flavor.
  • Use the microwave oven to heat the flour tortilla, 15 seconds is enough.
  • On the tortilla, put three fillets, the veggies and corn. Top with some dressing.
