Goose Fajitas

 In Recipes

We’ve prepared these goose fajitas in the past through our Summer Youth Program, where intercity youth were given the chance to learn about Indigenous culture and healthy food. Since then, we’ve been preparing this recipe with youth in many other communities! Goose is also a great source of iron, with around 15 times more iron than chicken!


  • 4 Goose breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 each sweet green, red and yellow pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole Tortillas


  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix together ingredients for the marinade.
  2. Slice goose breasts into thin strips and place in a bowl, covered with marinade. Let it sit for as long as possible (up to 6 hours).
  3. Slice up peppers and onions into long, thin pieces.
  4. Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and add oil.
  5. Add the goose meat and fry quickly until it’s mostly brown. Add the vegetables and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add the marinade to the pan and cook until the liquid boils and all the veggies and meat are coated in sauce, then transfer to a bowl.
  7. Take a tortilla, top it with veggies and meat, and add guacamole, sour cream, salsa, lettuce and tomatoes (or some of them). Roll it up and enjoy!
