The big Super Bowl game is coming up and these mini fish taco cups would be a great addition to your appetizer menu or Taco Tuesday. A mini fish taco is a smaller version of fish taco and instead of using a tortilla or taco shell, wonton wrappers are used for the crunchy shell. Wonton wrappers are great because they make a great cup holder for just about anything! If you don’t like fish tacos you can do a regular beef taco.
With the help of prepared cabbage slaw mix, you will see how quick and easy these fish tacos come together.
How to Mini Fish Tacos
- Place wonton wrappers into 12 cupcake tins. Bake at 375 for 10 – 15 minutes or until crispy. Spray with cooking spray to get crispy if needed.
- Heat a non stick skillet. Sprinkle fish with old bay seasoning (cajun seasoning works too) or whatever your favorite fish seasoning is. Cook fish until they’re white in the middle.
- In a bowl combine cabbage, blood orange juice, and green onion.
- In another bowl combine chipotle sauce, mayonnaise, sour cream, a dash of lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper, just a dash of each.
- Layer taco cups with cabbage mix, fish, and then sauce. Enjoy!
- Serving size, 1 fish taco cup
Tips for Fish Tacos
What type of fish is used in fish tacos?
Any flaky white fish will work for fish tacos. Examples of good white fish are halibut, tilapia, mahi mahi, walleye, and cod. Some people choose not to eat tilapia based on the conditions they are raised in. When choosing a really good fish to work with just make sure that it is from a reliable source.
What is adobo sauce? Chipotles in adobo are made of smoked and dried jalapenos that get canned in a sweet and tangy tomato puree. You can find this typically canned in the Mexican or authentic foods aisle at your grocery store. Some stores even have their version of this sauce already bottled up if you like fast kitchen hacks like that, it might be worth looking for a bottle.
Wonton wrappers are usually found in the produce area at your grocery store in the refrigerated section.

Hi Peter B.Thanks for the support and encouragement all the way from the remote mountains of western N.C. I’m glad you found something to enjoy in the Morning Show and Radio Heartland. And I agree with you wholeheartedly about. I’m a fan!
I don't want to be a bah-humbug because in general I do think that people should travel and make an effort and sacrifices to achieve their dreams. However, I have to say that in some cases Excuse #1 is valid for many people. Considering the unemployment rate and the fact that many people are really struggling to make ends meet, I wouldn't necessarily recommend that they travel before they pay off their credit cards, especially when banks and credit card companies are often hiking up interest rates and charging extra fees.
Mmmm... these look really yummy. In Japan I had somlan & cream cheese stuffed fried wontons. They were really delicious. I always thought apple pie filling and then dusted with cinnamon & sugar would be good.
