Healthy Fish Tacos

in , , by Katie Margaret, April 24, 2014


I haven't done a recipe post in a while, so I thought I'd share a healthy, delicious and of course an affordable meal that I love to make.

I always wanted to try fish tacos, and when I finally did, I have to admit that I was a little disappointed. The fish was deep fried and greasy, I just wasn't impressed. I was still intrigued with fish tacos. I wanted to try them again, this time not fried. So, I looked around for a good recipe for fish tacos. I realized it wouldn't take much to make them myself. So I came up with my own little recipe.



So how do I make my taco's? It's really a simple recipe. I use a mild fish, like tilapia or flounder, season it, then bake it in the oven. I like to top my taco with shredded cheese and a mango avocado salsa. Yum!

So here is all you need for my fish tacos...
  • 1 12oz bag of frozen Flounder
  • 1 Tsp chili powder
  •  1 Tsp cumin seed
  • 1 Tsp garlic powder
  • Shredded cheese
  • Whole Wheat Tortilla shells
Salsa
  • 1 avocado
  • 1-2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a red onion
  • 1/2 of a mango
  •  2 Tbsp cilantro
  • 1Tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp of pepper
* Just a little note: When I cook, I never use exact measurements, so the measurements I put just guidelines. I suggest you season it to taste.


Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degree
  • Place flounder files on a baking tray. 
  • Cover fish with seasoning. 
  • Bake for 14 minutes (Follow baking directions on the back of package)
  • In the meantime chop all salsa ingredients into a bowl.  
  • Remove fish from the oven and let cool.
  • When ready, assemble your taco and enjoy :)
I love these tacos! They are perfect for a quick healthy meal, that won't break your grocery budget.
