Fish Tacos

I know that not everyone out there likes fish tacos, but we love them. And this is an EASY and DELISH recipe I found a while back that I thought I would share. It takes no time at all and is so fresh and flavorful. I hope you enjoy!

Fish Tacos with Cabbage and Lime

1 pound boneless, skinless tilapia filets, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 T olive oil
coarse salt and ground pepper
1/4 cup light sour cream
1 lime, half finely zested and juiced, half cut into wedges
hot sauce, such as tobasco
12 corn tortillas
1/2 small head of red or green cabbage thinly sliced
1 cup fresh cilantro
1 small white onion, finely chopped
1-2 small tomatoes, chopped

1. Heat broiler, with rack in highest position. Pat fish dry with paper towels and gently coate iwth oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Broil until fish is browned on top and flesh is opaque throughout, about 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine sour cream, lime zest and juice, and a few dashes hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Soften corn tortialls (toaster oven for a bit or microwave for a minute or so wrapped in a paper towel).

3. Divide fish evenly among among tortillas and top with cabbage, cilantro, tomato and onion. Serve with lime sour cream and lime wedges.

Serves 4. About 120 calories per taco.
(Gluten free, and can also be dairy free if you use a substitute sour cream!)

Megan we LOVE fish tacos as well and these sound pretty similar to the ones we make but I make a tangy sauce that you should definitely try! I don't measure anything but it has roughly equal parts of sour cream and vinegar and then I season it with cumin, paprika, salt and pepper and onion powder. And we love to use it afterwards on quesadillas! Hope you like it, let me know what you think! :)
