  • Place taquitos in a baking dish large enough to accommodate all twelve. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

This was really yummy! As shark isn't too available here I used salmon instead and added in chopped green onions before cooking. As I don't have a deep fryer (and prefer not to fry) I skipped that step and just baked them for about 15 minutes(until edges were brown and crispy) - worked perfectly and was still absolutely delicious. Thanks Diana! Read More

Okay these were very tasty when all is said and done. However they were a pain to prepare. If you have the time and patience go for it. Read More

Very good! I did kind of run with it though. I substituted tofu for fish and tried to "mexi-up" the seasonings using lime juice instead of lemon olive oil instead of canola and cumin and chili powder instead of cajun seasonings. Read More

I marinated the fish in different salsas Mango cranberry and limes for summertime and in the winter added peppers and squashes. It's a good way to get the kids to eat them without them knowing! 2 year old approved! Read More

Really awesome! I used the fish we caught recently at a local lake & some ocean perch instead of shark. Great recipe. Be sure to heat the corn tortillas well or they fall apart when trying to wrap them. Read More
