Fish Tacos

Ever had one? These are popular in Texas for sure, but anyone can make a great fish taco. These are particularly good because they can be very low in fat, high in carbs and protein and loaded with flavor.

Things you will need to have on hand:

Fish of your choice, but white fish works best. Look for swordfish, sea bass, or tilapia. Salmon also works well.

Green or Red Salsa (or a hot sauce that you like)

Limes sliced into wedges

Corn tortillas

Onions, chopped

Cilantro, fresh is best!

Avocado, optional, sliced

Tomatoes, chopped

Grill your fish of choice. Be sure to add flavor! Brush with olive oil, garlic, peppers, whatever you like! Grill it with the skin side UP first and cook about 2/3 through. You can tell how much it is cooking by looking at the color of the flesh. It will turn from clear to solid. Flip it and finish grilling. If you are feeling a bit gourmet, use banana leaves to flip the fish on to when on the grill. This will make it easier to remove from the grill. You can just flake the fish apart while still on the leaves and clean up is WAY easier.

To prep the tortillas, brush with a little olive oil and heat briefly on the grill. All you have to do now is assemble your taco! Make it any way you like. J Top with a squeezed lime wedge and you are ready to eat!

Tip: If you are one of the lucky ones who need to increase your calories to gain some weight, you can double up the tortillas on your taco.

Eat smart!
