Increase Protein & Decrease Carbs

Fish Taco

Mango Salsa
1 mango, chopped
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 onion (red preffered, any onion OK)
juice of 1 lime, zest of 1/2 lime
mix ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate

Zesty, Creamy Topping
Skip the sour cream and use this instead!
1/2 cup plain lowfat yogurt, strained (Place a paper towel in a strainer and add the yogurt. This helps give the yogurt a thicker consistency like soft cheese. It needs about 2-3 hours in the refrigerator and you can skip this step if you don’t have the time)
1/2 tsp chili powder, taco seasoning, or fajita seasoning
stir and refrigerate
about 2-3 pounds white fish (we used tilapia or shrimp)
 season with salt and pepper
squeeze juice from 1/2 lime over fish
broil or grill on low to medium heat for 6-8 minutes (don’t over do it or your fish will be tough)

You will also need…
 Corn Tortillas
1 cup cabbage, shredded (green or purple – whatever looks good)

Making the Taco
Add the a little of each item and voila!  You have easy, simple fish tacos!

Indulge in a healthy, nutritious lunch or dinner… and feel great!
