Wahoo Fish Burrito Pineapple Salsa



The LA VICTORIA® Brand has been providing delicious sauces and chiles and peppers that my family has been enjoying for decades.  Their Salsa Verde and Salsa Jalapeña are two bottles that are always in our cupboard and used in countless recipes.  We were happy to try out a bottles of La Victoria Mango Habanero Salsa and La Victoria Pineapple Salsa and found them to be a perfect match for refreshing summer cooking recipes.  I love mixing up elements of sweet and spicy, and mango and pineapple are two fruits that have had me under a spell for years!  Being able to bring in some refreshing mango or pineapple flavors without having to actually do any peeling and cutting is a wonderful thing!

A recipe that pairs perfectly with the La Victoria Pineapple salsa is a seafood taco or burrito. On that note, I recently took my mother in law to a Mexican food in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego. I ordered something a little bit unusual to most parts of the country, a grilled fish burrito.  It turned out to be the best fish burrito I’ve ever had and possibly the best overall burritos I’ve ever tasted in my life. So I was inspired to create a similar recipe, a wahoo fish burrito. I am a big fan of beer batter fish taco and this is a great alternative way to enjoy fish in a taco or burrito without having to deep fry the fish.


In addition to being healthier it is also easier and faster, but first and foremost it’s great to eat fish without adding extra calories and cholesterol from the greasy oil. I chose wahoo because this fish is often featured in Mexican restaurants and is a nice to rotate in with Mahi Mahi and other go-to fish options.  The wahoo fish has a smooth and silky texture.  When it’s cooked Wahoo turns snowy white and the texture becomes similar to tuna.


The La Victoria Pineapple salsa flavor is so refreshing and not overwhelmingly sweet. Both of my kids love the taste of this salsa, too, especially with a big bowl of tortilla chip!  This salsa is very flexible and works well not only as a good dipping sauce but also perfect as marinade and stir fry sauce!

    Wow! I always loved burritos and since I don’t eat meat this is the perfect alternative for me. I’m interested in that pineapple salsa and the many other recipes you can use it on.

    I am not a huge fan of fish but these look so good. I should try them but substitute the fish with chicken. We love tacos/burritos in our house.
