Crunchy Fish Tacos

Crunchy Fish Tacos

Crunchy fish taco wraps. A great idea for an after school snack.

I grew up not liking fish sticks. It would not be presumptuous  to say that I even despised them. They were mushy at my elementary school cafeteria and lacked flavor even for my miniature taste buds at the time.  But, since I am writing this recipe I guess that you can assume that times have changed.

Since March is Frozen Foods Month, I took advantage of the sales on some frozen items such as Mrs Paul’s Frozen Fish Sticks. I guess being made with 100% whole fish fillets makes a difference.
