Recipe of the Week: Grilled Fish Tacos

Since we are heading off to Mexico (soon) I thought I would share with you one of my favorite meals, fish tacos.  If you are a Mexican food lover than this recipe is essential, plus it's a healthier version of many of the recipes that are out there.


Grilled Fish Tacos


2 large fish fillets (cod, snapper, tilapia, halibut or salmon are all excellent choices)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
juice from 1/2 lime
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1 cup finely shredded red cabbage
1 cup finely shredded iceberg lettuce
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons Greek yogurt (plain)
1 tablespoons low-fat cream cheese
olive oil, for brushing
8 tortillas


Marinate your fish in sea salt, pepper, juice, garlic powder and chili powder.  Leave the fish in the marinade for 30 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the avocado, onion, cabbage, lettuce and cilantro together.  In another bowl, mix the yogurt and cream cheese together and season with salt and pepper.

Place fish in a hot grill pan for 4 minutes a side.

Heat each tortilla before assembling.  Place pieces of fish on the tortillas then add some of the sauce on top followed by the avocado mixture.

Serves 4 with two tortillas per serving
