Quick and great for during the week! I LOVE Fish Taco’s. I first had them in Hawaii, and I’ve been hooked ever since!
Tilapia (fresh or from frozen)
Corn tortilla’s (small corn only tortilla’s–I buy mine at Safeway)
Fresh or canned pineapple
1/2 avocado (optional)
Handful of fresh cilantro
Lime juice (or lemon)
Low fat ranch dressing
Sprinkle the thawed tiliapia with cumin & chili powder. Spray a medium pan with cooking spray. Cook tilapia on medium to high heat for 3-4 minutes each side or until done. Remove from heat.
Avocado/pineapple salsa (chop up avocado and pineapple into bit size pieces, chop a handful of cilantro and add to the mix, top with the juice of 1/2 a lime–lemon is ok too). You can make the taco’s without this salsa if you don’t have the ingredients on hand, but its a great addition!
Heat tortilla shells in microwave or oven.
Assemble! Put a strip on ranch dressing on tortilla shell (1Tbsp), then put tilapia fillet on top (2.5 oz). Add greens, pineapple/avocado salsa, then regular salsa. Wrap up and enjoy! 2 is a serving.
