Seafood Enchiladas

We’ve designed an amazing Seafood Enchiladas recipe, especially for the seafood lovers out there! The filling is so scrumptious and creamy. It’s prepared with potatoes and onions that have been cooked together until tender, then king prawns and white crab meat are added into the mix, a touch of creme fraiche, and lemon to bring it all together. 

Gran Luchito Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce is the perfect pairing for these easy seafood enchiladas. We add the sauce all over our wrapped tacos with the creamy seafood filling, and then top them with grated cheese. The enchiladas are finally baked in the oven until they get deliciously golden brown on top.

With the help of our ready-made Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce and some Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps, you can prepare this healthy seafood enchiladas recipe at home in no time, and have a delicious meal to bring to your family table in a few easy steps.

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/360˚F. Heat up a frying pan with the olive oil and butter over medium heat. Once the butter melts add the onion, stir, and let it soften. Add the potatoes and allow them to get a bit of colour for a couple of minutes. Add the water and bring the temperature to a minimum. Place the lid on and let it simmer for 10 to 15 mins or until the potatoes are cooked through.
  2. When the potatoes are cooked through, add the prawns, let them cook and get slightly pink in colour. Then add the crab meat, creme fraiche, lemon zest, lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Finish with the parsley scattered on top, remove from the heat, and reserve.
  3. Get your Soft Taco Wraps ready and a baking dish. Add a nice amount of seafood filling into each soft taco and wrap into a taco-like shape. Place it in the baking dish and repeat the same with the remaining filling and soft tacos, until you fill up the baking dish.
  4. Open the Tomatillo Enchilada Sauce and pour the sauce over the top. Cover them evenly with the sauce and add the grated cheese on top. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown on top. Serve this recipe for seafood enchiladas warm, and enjoy!

How healthy are seafood enchiladas?

Enchiladas are not typically what one considers healthy. They're loaded with a lot of heavy, saturated fat and refined carbs that make them something you don't want to eat regularly. However, the seafood in these make them a healthier alternative to ones perhaps loaded with chorizo or beef.
