Asian Fish Stick Tacos
with tangy cabbage slaw / Sriracha crema

Active: 35 Total: 35
Asian Fish Tacos got great reviews back in 2020 for their combination of bright flavors and varied textures. Tonight we're bringing back a shortcut version that uses store-bought fish sticks for an even faster meal.
Smarts #1: Look for breaded fish sticks so that you get the most crunch in the tacos.
Smarts #2: Don't forget to season the coleslaw with some salt right before serving. Salt will help the other flavors to really pop.

Bomb! Added jalapeño to the coleslaw because hot peppers make me feel alive. ;)

Tofu was softer then we’d expected. But overall, this was very tasty.

Great flavors but the tofu really stuck in my air fryer. Will add oil to the marinade next time.

Winner winner, easy dinner. So simple, great way for someone like me who doesn’t really cook fish to incorporate it, and enjoyed by parents and toddler alike.

Super easy and quick. Make sure to allow the coleslaw to marinate before serving because we enjoyed it even more as leftovers the next day.
