Step 1

Prepare the Vegan "Fish":

  • Preheat the oven according to the package instructions of your vegan fish fillets.

  • Place the fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with taco seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  • Bake in the oven for the specified time or until the fillets are crispy and golden.

Step 2

Assemble the Burritos:

  • Warm the tortillas either in the oven or on a skillet for a few seconds to make them pliable.

  • Lay each tortilla flat and spread a tablespoon of vegan mayo or dressing in the center.

  • Layer the mixed greens, sliced avocado, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and fresh cilantro on top of the dressing.

Step 3

Add the "Fish" and Roll:

  • Once the vegan fish fillets are ready, place one fillet on top of the prepared ingredients on each tortilla.

  • Squeeze a wedge of lime over the fillings for added flavor.

  • Carefully fold the sides of the tortilla towards the center, then roll it up tightly to form a burrito.

Step 4

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Optionally, you can lightly toast the assembled burritos on a skillet to give them a crispy texture.

  • Cut the burritos in half diagonally and serve immediately.
