Our Fish Finger Tachos are a colourful flavour fiesta on a plate. We’ve swapped out beef mince for fish finger bites and layered them together with a medley of shredded slaw-style veggies. It wouldn’t be ‘Tachos’ without nachos, so we’ve added low-salt tortilla chips for an irresistible cheesy crunch.

Fish Finger Tachos - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

There’s no shortage of flavour (or colour!) in our Fish Finger Tachos. Bursting with an easy-to-assemble, delicious filling, they’ll transform from a group of ingredients into a fully-loaded dinner in less than 25 minutes. 

To make sure our Tachos are filling for fewer calories, we’ve combined shredded cabbage, red onion, lettuce and carrot with a sriracha-mayo drizzle to make our vibrant, slimming-friendly slaw. Plus, we’ve popped low-salt tortilla chips in the oven with a melty topping of reduced-fat Cheddar cheese to give our Tachos their signature nacho crunch. 

Tachos are tasty and filling enough all on their own, or you can serve them up with a side of Coleslaw and Homemade Oven Chips for a more indulgent spread. They’re definitely one of our favourite ways to take a midweek break from meat! 

There’s nothing to stop you ramping up the spice if you’re in the mood for fiery flavours; we love a drizzle of hot sauce over ours. Just be sure to adjust the calories accordingly, if you’re counting.

What diets are Fish Finger Tachos suitable for?

Fish Finger Tachos recipe can be suitable for gluten-free diets as long as you substitute the cod fish fingers and low-calorie tortilla wraps for gluten-free alternatives.  

They can also be made dairy-free by swapping out the following ingredients for dairy-free versions:

  • Low-fat mayonnaise 
  • Reduced-fat mature Cheddar cheese

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.
