These Fish Tacos are very easy & SO GOOD!! There are 3 simple parts, the sauce, the salsa garnish, and the fish! Also, this recipe makes a lot of garnish, but it will keep in the fridge for a day so you can have 2 easy back to back dinners, of you can use it as a side with chips.
Okay, to make the sauce you need:
(1) 1/4 c green onions, finely chopped
(2) 1/4 c cilantro, finely chopped
(3) 3 Tbs Fat Free Mayo (you can use light or regular, but it’s good with fat free so why waste the fat/cals?!)
(4) 3 Tbs Fat Free Sour Cream (same story w/ using light or regular)
(5) The juice of 1-2 limes + 1 tsp zested lime rind
(6) 1 clove garlic, minced
Simply mix all ingredient in a small bowl & stir well
Easy, right?! This amount is good for 4-6 tacos. You can double it if you wanna save half for tomorrow night.
NEXT: Salsa Garnish! You’re going to need:
(1) 1 small red onion, fined chopped
(2) 2 avocados, diced
(3) 2 tomatoes, diced
(4) 1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
(5) 1 can corn, drained
(6) 1 Tbs olive oil
(7) 2 limes, juiced
Mix all ingredients, stir well. The photo I have is of leftover salsa I made yesterday, it’s seriously just as good the 2nd day, if not better! I serve thinly sliced jalapenos on the side, and a little shredded cabbage, mostly because its pretty 🙂
Now, time for the fish!! We use either Mahi Mahi (our fav) or Tilapia (really cheap when you catch it on sale.) Both taste good, the mahi is usually thicker. I buy frozen, thaw according to package.
I season with Chef Paul’s Blackend Redfish Magic. It’s not too spicy and has Great flavor. Pour a little olive oil in a good non-stick pan. Season both sides of the fish, cook on medium heat, 3-4 min on each side. Fish will flake apart & be white inside when done. Take care not to over cook it!
And, that’s It!! You’re ready to enjoy some Tasty Fish Tacos!!
I either cook rice like Lipton Sides Mexican rice, or heat up one of the Microwave packs by Uncle Ben or Old El Paso. Now, just assemble your tacos & Enjoy!…see below-
