This recipe will either take you to your memories or your dreams in a hammock at a beautiful beach. This fish tacos are crispy and full of flavor. This recipe is for 20 fish tacos, enough to feed 4 hungry people.

Picture of Ingredients

7 fish steaks (i've used mojarra and tilapia but you can use your favorite type)

4 medium size tomatoes

1/2 onion

salt and pepper to taste

20 tortillas

40 toothpicks

Step 2: Cook the Fish

Place the fish in a cooking pot with enough water to cover them. Let it boil for around 20 minutes or until they look perfectly cooked.

Drain them and put them in a bowl.

Use a fork to smash them. This is very easy when the fish are still hot.

Step 3: Chop

Chop the onion and tomato in little squares. I personally like the onion in smaller pieces than the tomato but you can do it as you like the most.

Step 4: Cook

Put the onion in a pan with a little oil. When it is a little cooked (like 4 minutes later) place the tomato and stir. Let it cook for 5 minutes stirring constantly. When it's ready put the fish in the pan and mix well.

Add salt and pepper to taste and let it cool down.

Step 5: Make the Tacos

Warm the tortillas for 1 minute in the microwave.

Put the fish we made in the middle of the tortilla using a spoon. Make sure it doesn't reach the edge.

Fold the tortilla in half and put one toothpick on each side to hold it closed.

Step 6: Fry
