Quick Fish Tacos with Rice and Veggies



After Hurricane Irene hit on Sunday, my family was left without power. I made an impromptu trip down to my boyfriend’s house (he had electricity,) and needed to come up with some dinner quickly! The resuly were some quick and easy fish tacos. They were tasty, very easy to make, and had a lot of flavor and a variety of textures. Even though this was a “throw together” meal, I will definitely make it again!

-12 breaded fish sticks
-A pack of fajita sized (6″) tortillas
-1 cup of shredded carrots
-1 cup of shredded lettuce

-1 package of prepared rice (such as Knorr or Goya)
-1 bag of frozen zucchini/squash mix
