Fish Taco Bowls have all the fixins of your favorite fish tacos but are much simpler to make and eat!

Have you heard of Friday night Fish Fry?

If you have, there’s a good chance you’re from Wisconsin.

Every Friday growing up, my family would always hit up one restaurant or another for Friday night Fish Fry. Even long after I moved out of the state, I knew not to bother trying to call my parents on Friday nights.

These Fish Taco Bowls make a serious contender for best Friday night Fish Fry. And the best part is not only that you don’t have to leave your house, but it’s so simple to throw together that it can be any night of the week!

I start my Fish Taco Bowls either some grilled fish or some frozen battered fish fillets, which is delicious enough to stand on their own. There are some great brands out there and I’ve found some great beer-battered cod (from Gorton’s but there are others that are good, too).

To make your Fish Taco Bowls, you can use whatever toppings you like, in whatever amounts sound good to you. I use about equal amounts of everything: some battered or grilled fish, fresh corn off the cob, shredded cabbage, cooked rice, chopped red bell pepper, chopped poblano pepper, cilantro, a little cheese, avocado and Serrano pepper.

Then I make a simple “dressing” with sour cream, some hot sauce (usually Tabasco), fresh lime juice and a pinch of salt. Toss it all together and you have a delicious Fish Taco Bowl that everyone will devour.

This is one of those shortcut meals that everyone loves – especially me, since it saves me so much time!
