Tilapia Tacos

One of my favorite quick and healthy dinners is fish tacos.  Then can be made in 15-20 minutes, and are always a crowd pleaser.  Lots of flavor, plenty to eat, and all good ingredients.

2 tilapia fillets
½ cup corn meal
Salt and pepper
Pam or other non stick spray

1 cup shredded cabbage
1 lime, juiced
4 Tbl chopped Cilantro
1 Tbl agave syrup
4 corn tortilla

After thawing the tilapia (I usually keep some around, they freeze very well), split in half length wise, which makes 2 perfect portions. 

Season with salt and pepper

Spray the tilapia with cooking spray then dredge in corn meal; the spray helps the cornmeal to stick with out adding flour and eggs.  It keeps it quite healthy, but with a lot of flavor.

Heat a saute pan, spray again and then saute, approx. 5-7 minutes  per side on medium heat. 

Combine lime juice and agave to make the dressing dressing.  I love to use Agave Syrup as a sweetener; its flavor is very subtle, it mixes well since it is already a liquid, and it has low glycemic index.  I often use it in dressing, cocktails, and hubby even uses it in his coffee.

Toss the dressing with cabbage and cilantro to make a slaw.

Warm tortillas

Place one fish “stick” per tortilla

Top with Slaw


Calories approx. 300 per taco - not bad - have two for a healthy light dinner, and even add some extra slaw to the plate for more volume.
