Lunch Box Ideas-Fish Tacos

fish tacos1

When the kids have exams, TAKS tests and STAAR tests, we get a letter from schools to make sure our kids eat wholesome breakfast and to pack a good nutritious and hearty lunch. Not that we don’t do the same for our kids every day, we go overboard with the wholesome healthy breakfast  and a hearty lunch on these particular days.

Today was one such exam day, hence  our healthy breakfast was a bell peppers and onions, egg omelet, while  for lunch, I packed fish tacos, kettle potato chips, an orange, granola bar, apple juice and  to ward of any fishy aftertaste, a small chocolate for dessert   with a motivating  note 😉

The Fish tacos are a healthy and wholesome lunch made with simple ingredients and hence easy to make for lunch boxes!

  • Yield: Makes 4 tacos
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes


  • 4 uncooked flour tortillas
  • 8 Chunky fish sticks
  • 2 teaspoons of Salsa
  • 2 teaspoons of  Spicy Sriracha and Ranch combo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon  feta cheese( optional)
  • 4 slices of Avocado
  • 4 slices of cucumbers
  • 8 slices of red/green bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno seeded
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • ½ lemon
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • dash of Salt and black pepper



  •  Grill or bake the fish sticks, I prefer to buy the chunky fish sticks which actually have fish, and not fish pulp.
  • Cook the uncooked flour tortillas on a griddle with a small drizzle of oil to keep the tortilla crispy yet moist.
  • To prep the fixings, chop some Romaine lettuce, chop cucumbers, slice green or red peppers, slice 4 avocado slivers, chop the jalapeno after deseeding it, and chop the cilantro.
  •  Now set the cooked tortillas on a foil, and lay out all the taco fixings on the tortilla and set the fish sticks. Top it with Salsa, the Sriracha and Ranch combined spicy sauce, salt and pepper, a dash of lemon juice, and optional feta cheese or any
  • shredded cheese.
  • Lay a lettuce leaf on top of all so that the fish and fixings stay together and roll the tortilla into an easy taco. Wrap this with foil to eat conveniently.                                      fixingstish taco wrapfish taco wrap2 fish taco lunchtacos
