Grilled Fish Tacos

Looking for something different to do with tilapia? Discover these AMAZING fish tacos! Topped with avocado cream sauce for a flavorful addition. Grilled or pan sauteed you will be so happy you discovered this dish.

What you'll need:

2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp sea salt
2 -  4 oz. raw tilapia fillets (or other white fish)
4 corn tortillas (taco size)
1 c. shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
1/4 c. chopped tomato

Avocado Cream Sauce
1 whole mashed Haas Avocado 
4 tbsp. fat-free sour cream or plain yogurt
1/4 tsp. lime juice
Dash of sea salt (to taste)
Dash of garlic powder (to taste)
Dash of chili powder (to taste)
Dash of cumin (to taste)

Combine lime juice and spices for the tacos together in a large bowl, mix well. Add fish fillets and cover both sides well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.

While the fish is marinating, combine all the ingredients for the avocado cream sauce in a small bowl, mix well. Refrigerate until tacos are ready.

Spray grill or pan with nonstick spray and bring to medium heat. Grill fish for 5 minutes, then flip (being very careful not to break fillet). Grill for 3 more minutes. Set aside.

Heat tortillas on grill or pan until warm (about 45 sec per side). Plate the tortillas and spread evenly with avocado cream. Split the fish between the tortillas. Top with cabbage and tomatoes, fold and ENJOY!
