Baja Fish Burritos

Take out just met it’s match with this Baja Fish Burrito. We love the crunch of the fish, and the zingy taste of the sauce.  In partnership with Gorton’s Seafood, we created a seriously delicious, easy to make Baja fish burrito! It is so easy to create TAKE OUT at home with Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets! We sliced our veggies, but you can just as easily grab a bag of pre-shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix! We love the crunch and taste of radishes, and this gives just a bit more heat! For this recipe we used Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish, but you can use any of their fish products for this meal! You will find a variety in our freezer, cause they are such a quick meal maker!

We are seriously obsessed that these are so fast to make on a week night!! You can even make the sauce the night before, and slice up the veggies, so all you have to do is make the pico de Gallo and bake the fish, and warm the tortillas when you get home! Tell us that isn’t way easier that waiting in the TAKE OUT line!

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 14 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 5 servings 1x
  • Category: seafood
  • Method: baking
  • Cuisine: Mexican


  • 1 10 piece bag of Gorton’s Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets
  • 1 orange or red pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • 1/4 of a red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 10 radishes, sliced thin
  • 1 avocado sliced (do not slice till right before you put burritos together
  • 5 large flour tortillas (10 inch size)

Ingredients for Baja Sauce:

  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, we use sriracha sauce.
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 4 grinds of pepper

Ingredients for Pico de Gallo:

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 jalapeño seeded, and diced small
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, diced small
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • juice of half a lime
  • pinch of sea salt




In a small glass bowl, add sour cream, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper and lime juice. Stir until mixed. Place in the refrigerator while preparing the rest of the burrito ingredients.

Pre-heat oven to 425 F while making the pico di Gallo.

Cut the tomatoes, jalapeño, red onion and place in a small glass bowl. Add in the minced cilantro, lime, and a pinch of salt. Toss with a spoon, and taste. Add more salt or cilantro to your taste.

Place the 10 crunchy fish fillets onto a cookie sheet, and put into oven. Set timer for 7 minutes. When timer goes off, spin pan, and set for another 7 minutes.

While fish is baking, slice the radishes, red cabbage and peppers, and place in bowls.

Warm 5 tortillas. You can warm them in the oven by placing them between 2 sheets of heavy foil and placing in oven the last 7 minutes of the fish baking, or you can put them in the microwave for 30 seconds. You will want the tortillas to be warm when you assemble, so that they roll well.

Slice radishes and peppers and place in bowls. Right before the fish is ready to come out of the oven, slice the avocado. Now all the fillings are ready for everyone to assemble their burritos!

How to assemble a Baja Fish Burrito:

Place warmed tortilla on a plate, and add 2 fish fillets. Top the fillets with red cabbage, peppers, avocado, radishes, pico de Gallo, and sour cream sauce. Gently roll burrito up, and slice in half.

 It only takes a few ingredients, and about 30 minutes and you have Baja fish burritos!

    I can’t wait to try this! Always love fish tacos and burritos but it’s way to messy to fry it. These sticks look delicious and the burrito is amazing!
