These Baha Fish Taco Bowls are a fun way to get fish into your diet. Everyone can add their own extra toppings and your family will ask for them again and again.
Yay, it's Tuesday! And that means Taco Tuesday.
I had originally planned to make fish tacos but instead I am making Baha Fish Taco Bowls. I see rice taco bowls everywhere and I wanted to jump on the bandwagon.
So let's take everything we'd put on a fish taco and put it is a bowl with some rice. I have made Asian Shrimp Cauliflower Rice Bowls but now it's time for some made with Gordon's fish. Mmmnnn!
Fish Taco Bowls are a good Meatless Dinner for Lent!
I grew up in a Catholic family where we ate fish every Friday whether it was lent or not. My mom often made Tuna Cakes from canned tuna because it was economical with four kids in the family. We also had the occasional treat of pizza.
Lent starts this week and Gordon's Seafood is a trusted name in incorporating fish into my family's menu. I may not participate in all the religious traditions that my family did, but out of habit, I still serve fish on Fridays often. While frozen dinners are not the norm in my kitchen, sometimes I need a little help. And if I do need help, Gorton's Seafood is in my freezer to provide it.
I remember eating fish sticks as a kid and thinking they were quite boring. That just isn't the case anymore. There are so many options of seafood so when I need an easy meal to make, Gorton's Seafood is the answer.
My kids love the beer battered fish fillets and they are great to use in tacos, taco bowls, sandwiches or just straight out of the oven to your plate. But recently when buying them, I discovered something else that my family asks for.
I purchased Gorton's Beer Battered Fish Fillets at my local Walmart and happened to notice some Mac and Cheese Shrimp Bites in the same aisle. My kids are big mac and cheese lovers so I was thrilled. They are perfect little bites to serve as party appetizers. I sprinkled some parsley over them and my guests thought they were homemade or purchased at a restaurant. Win, win for all!
These bites are also perfect to snack on after school especially if our busy schedule dictates that dinner will be a little later in the evening.
Prep for Dinner in Advance
Most days, I like to think ahead and prep for dinner in advance because there is not always an abundance of time during the dinner hour. Many nights, we are eating at 7:30 pm after my son comes home from soccer practice. These fish taco bowls are perfect because the rice and other ingredients can be prepared in advance. The fish fillets are heated in the oven and dinner can be on the table in half an hour.
It would be a great idea to keep your freezer stocked with Gorton’s Seafood whether it's during Lent or not. I keep my freezer stocked with Gordon's Seafood all year round. I never know when I will need an easy seafood meal. For more recipe inspiration and product information, visit them on all their social media!
