We’ve all been there – looking for a meal in a hurry with no time to shop! This one-hit-wonder will buy you your fifteen minutes of fame. It’s based around an ingredient that pretty much everyone has in their pantry – canned tuna.
Combine that with tortillas, some mayo, cream, onion, and cilantro and you’re good to go with this healthy meal.
To assemble your tacos, lay them flat on a clean work surface or individual plates. Add a quarter of the tuna fish filling onto each one. On top of that, add a portion of the onion and cilantro mixture. Finally, top with your sour cream and mayonnaise dressing. Use a taco holder for them to stay put.
Sure! Other canned fish like sardines, salmon, or mackerel would work great in this recipe. Just toss them around a bit in a cast iron skillet and follow the direction above.
These tacos are very customizable and will rival any other canned fish recipes you are able to find.
Yes! You can really liven up your fish filling, by adding some shredded salad leaves like cabbage, lettuce, or even homemade coleslaw.
If you are looking to up the veggie content in your tuna tacos, adding cooked vegetables to the filling is great idea.
To bulk up the fish filling, sauté some diced bell peppers, celery, thinly sliced carrots, or diced asparagus. Then add the fish.
If you are looking to keep it as close to the recipe as possible you could swap out the mayo for Greek yogurt, or if you are a little more open to variation try leaving it out entirely and using guacamole as a topping. If you wanted to go with an Asian fish tacos vibe, try whisking up a dressing made of soy, ginger, and chopped scallions.
Unleash the chili peppers! Pickled jalapenos work really well with canned fish; or, sauté a finely chopped fresh habanero in the oil before you add the fish.
