Don’t you just love wraps? I mean, talk about versatile – you can do just about anything with them and they are always totally fabulous, fresh, and fast! The perfect summertime meal, be it lunch, dinner or just a snack.
After a friend mentioned fish tacos the other day, I was inspired to make my own. I’d made shrimp tacos before, but fish tacos were a totally new idea! So, I made up some fresh salsa and guacamole and added a little fish in a soft taco. It was the perfect easy dinner! Here’s how I did it:
1 small fillet of mild fish like Basa, tilapia, or cod (cooked and cut/flaked)
3 vine ripe tomatoes, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1 TBSP olive oil
salt and pepper
4 small whole wheat wraps
guacamole, sour cream or other garnish
Cook fish and set aside. Make salsa with the vegetables, olive oil, salt and pepper. Assemble wraps with fish, topped with salsa and guacamole and other toppings like sour cream, cheese..etc. Enjoy!
my 5 yr. old daughter request fish tacos. i’ve taken a few recipes and turned it into mine. i take tilapia patted dry and cut into pieces and put on a baking sheet. brush w/ a mixture of olive oil,cumin,garlic and bake at 450 for 6-7 minutes. awesome!good ole guac and salsa on them with a little cheese and for mom and dad some coleslaw mixed with chipotle mayo. can’t forget to make rice and beans to go with it! protein,protein!
Taste the slaw again and season as needed with more lime juice. Slice the remaining lime halves into wedges and serve with the tacos. To construct a taco, break up some of the cooked fish, place it in a warm tortilla, and top it with slaw and any optional garnishes.
Battered and fried fish tacos are delicious, but not particularly healthy. Here, we treat the fish to a citrus marinade, grill it, and serve in soft corn tortillas with avocado and tangy cabbage slawâ€”healthy
