Fish Finger Enchiladas

Fish Finger Enchiladas 

 I bet I can tell exactly what you are thinking at this precise moment . . . it probably goes along the lines of "Fish Finger Enchiladas??? Has she finally gone off her rocker????" 

That line of thinking wouldn't be exactly out of line as my own was when I first ran across this recipe in a little booklet I picked up at the grocery store the other day, Best Food Fast, Meals in Minutes . . .

 And yet . . . at the same time I was strangely intrigued.

 My boys loved Mexican food when they were growing up. 

 I could have put anything into a tortilla, and I mean A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G . . . and called it a burrito and they would have gobbled it up like there was no tomorrow!!

It may have had something to do with the Cheeky Chihuahua in the Taco Bell Commercials. 

 (A Mexican Fast Food place in North America, along the same lines as McDonalds, ceptin you get Tacos there instead burgers.) 

The sight of that Chihuahua fluttering his Mexican lashes and spouting Spanish phrases out of the telly screen always send them into gargantuan Mexican food cravings . . . specifically Tacos and burritos.

 They also really loved the Enchiladas I made after Thanksgiving with the leftover turkey. In fact . . . I have been known to roast a turkey just so that I could fill the freezer with those tasty little babies. 

 I wish I had known about this recipe when my lads were growing up. It may have inspired them to eat more fish, or brain food as my mama always called it.

 These were incredibly tasty and easy to make! I am sure kids everywhere would love them.

If I use the snuffling sounds and gurgles of enjoyment that came from my husband's  little corner of the table tonight as an indication of the pleasure that an adult male would get from them, I think I could safely say that the really big kiddies will love them too!

 We probably don't want to know how many calories are in one of them . . . do we??? 

 But I am thinking that the use of low fat ingredients cut them down quite a bit . . . right??? 

 hmmm . . . perhaps the acorn really doesn't fall that far from the proverbial tree after all . . . These were incredibly, edibly and totally delicious!

Kids will love this. Quick and easy and fairly economical. It lifts fish fingers out of the ordinary into something special!


  • 8 frozen fish fingers(we like cod)
  • 295g (10 1/4 ounce) tin of condensed mushroom soup
  • 284ml pot of sour cream (1 cup)
  • 125g (4 ounces) cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6 spring onions, sliced
  • 4 soft flour tortillas
  • 8 TBS tomato salsa (as mild or as hot as you prefer)
  • more sliced spring onions to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 5. Lightly spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place the fish fingers in a baking pan and cook them for about 10 minutes, turning them over halfway through the cooking time. Remove from the oven.
  3. While they are cooking, place the soup into a small saucepan and gently heat. When heated stir in the sour cream, 3/4 of the cheese and the first amount of spring onions.
  4. Spoon 2 dessertspoons of the sour cream mixture onto each tortilla and then lay two fish fingers on top. (Reserve at least 1/3 of the soup for the end.)Drizzle 2 TBS of the salsa over top of the fish fingers and then roll up the tortillas.
  5. Place them, seam side down, into the baking dish. Repeat with remaining fish fingers etc.
  6. Spoon the remainder of the soup over top of the rolled tortillas and sprinkle with the remainder of the cheese.
  7. Bake in the heated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until bubbling and golden brown. Remove from the oven, scatter with the remainder of the sliced spring onions and serve.

  1. Oh Marie, I wondered if The English Kitchen had been hacked into & been taken over by Funsters! Except of course, the Funster is you! What a great dish, so yummy I'll be throwing the Leaping Lipids diet out the window for one night only & do this. Food should be fun & you certainly make it so my dear.

  2. Well, you're right, I took one look at the title and thought...'Marie, with fish fingers??? I've got to see this!!!!' You've done it again tho... sounds lovely, in fact I'm going to offer this at my kids can cook Pampered Chef shows (If that's ok with you?) I like to try to cook child friendly food and this looks easy enough for the little darlings to do it themselves (with a little help of course!) Mine don't do mushroom soup but I'm thinking.... chicken goujons, with asparagus soup? Now you've got me started you could go on for ever with the different flavour combos.... thanks Marie you really are a star!!!

  3. Que estupendo plato, no lo conocía de nada. Un saludo

  4. Marie, I would try anything if I could get my boys to eat fish! And your pictures make this delectable!
