Now that hubby has a little more energy after being chemo free since January, he has started doing more of the grocery shopping. Years ago when he would shop, nine times out of ten he would bring home items that I normally wouldn’t buy.
He would bring home foods that were high in sugar or sodium, like Lemon Meringue pies, Chocolate Chip Cookies and canned foods. But that has since changed and he is paying closer attention to product labels.
However, the one food that we both always bought was fresh fish especially Salmon. Last week hubby decided to buy a package of frozen Tilapia filets which turned out to be a perfect alternative and it made for a great quick weekend meal.
Normally I bake fish with just a little lemon juice and olive oil but this time I decided to make fish tacos and they turned out pretty good.
Using the following ingredients we had these awesome Fish Tacos for dinner
3 Frozen Tilapia Filets
1 Package Ortega Fish Taco Seasoning (use 1/2 pack for less sodium intake)
1 Box Ortega Fiesta Flats
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (scallions)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
8 oz container of Sour Cream
3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
1 Teaspoon grated lime rind
Juice from a small lime
Shredded Cabbage (optional)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Coat pan or cookie sheet with Cooking Spray
Cook fish filets in the oven according to package directions
Chop onions and cilantro then place in a bowl, pour in Fish Taco Seasoning Mix, add Sour Cream, Mayo, Grated Lime Rind and juice from the lime. Stir until mixed thoroughly.
Fish is done when it flakes easily, test with a fork before removing from the oven. Add fish to the bowl or add some of the mixture into the pan and stir lightly with a fork to coat.
I only used 3 Tilapia fillets, but you will have plenty of sauce to use for at least 12 Fish Tacos.
Divide fish evenly among Fiesta Flats and top with shredded cabbage and cheddar cheese.
Serve with Black Beans and enjoy.
