So the hubs and I decided to start a weight loss competition this past Monday between us and another married couple that we're friends with. In doing so, we've been trying new recipes to cut down on eating out. Needless to say, we've also been trying to make healthy recipes. Well last night I think we hit the jackpot of all recipes: fish tacos! It was literally one of the most delicious and satisfying healthy meals I have ever had. It's no pizza or macaroni, but I didn't feel like a disgusting cow after I ate it either. So, I decided to share with you. Because I think you'll love it too!
I mean, my mouth is watering just looking at this picture. I really wish we had had leftovers.
3/4 c fat-free plain Greek yogurt
1/4 c fresh cilantro, chopped
4 Tbsp low sodium taco seasoning
1 lb white fish fillets, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 tsp olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon or 2-3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, sliced or diced
1/2 red onion, diced
Package of small flour wheat tortillas
How to make:
Combine plain yogurt, cilantro, and 2 Tbsp taco seasoning mix into a small bowl. Set aside.
Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, and the rest of the taco seasoning into a small bowl.
Cut the fish.
Place the fish on a tinfoil covered baking sheet and brush the olive oil mixture onto the pieces.
Broil on high for 5-10 minutes or until fish is flaky. While the fish is cooking, chop your veggies. (And if you're new to cooking, make sure you wash your cutting board free of fish juice). We don't need anybody getting sick.
Warm up your tortillas in the microwave. You could also use corn tortillas to make it even healthier, but I absolutely detest the texture of corn tortillas. So we went with wheat flour tortillas.
Spread some of your Greek yogurt mixture onto your tortillas.
Add your fish and top with tomatoes, avocado, onion, and shredded cabbage. And if you're a sauce person like me, I added more of the yogurt mixture on top!
And there you have it. Some healthy fish tacos. Bon appétit! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
