Happy Cinco de Mayo! You have to have tacos tonight, right? Although I wanted some Mexican, the husband and I wanted to eat light and healthy. These fish tacos fit the bill. Don’t be fooled by the picture which you might think is a tostada. I took the picture before I folded the taco in half. I love to fill my tacos with healthy ingredients. So first I made some cole slaw. I took a bag of slaw mix and added some red wine vinegar and a spoon of sugar.
Then I made my blackened fish. I sprinkled some steak seasoning and chili powder on some nice filets of tilapia. Or you could use your favorite cajun fish seasoning.
Drizzle some olive oil in a large frying pan and sear the fish for a few minutes on each side. Doesn’t the fish look great?
Now gather up your favorite toppings. I like mashed avocado, sour cream, salsa and cheddar cheese. Heat some corn tortillas, pile on the slaw, fish and toppings. Fold your taco and try to eat it without it dribbling down your face. Enjoy and don’t forget to wash it down with a margarita!
