Number of Servings: 4


    14 oz. thawed tilapia filets, about 3.5 oz. per serving
    1 medium onion, chopped, divided
    1 medium tomato, chopped, divided
    1 ripe avocado, chopped
    12 oz. broccoli or cabbage slaw
    4 servings whole wheat tortillas (check package for serving size)
    2 tsp taco dry taco seasoning
    zest of 1 lemon, about 1 T
    juice of 1/2 lemon, about 1 T
    cilantro, fresh, chopped fine, about 2 tbsp


Chop onion and tomato. Shred cabbage (or use the pre-shredded; non-dressed broccoli slaw can also be used). Place tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds on medium to make them more pliable. Chop or slice entire avocado.

Sprinkle tilapia filets on both sides with taco seasoning. Place in nonstick pan and cook over medium heat until pan-side appears white, about 3-5 minutes. Flip, adding half the onions and half the tomatoes. Using the spatula, chunk the fish as if you were browning ground meat, trying to evenly distribute with seasonings and vegetables. To thoroughly cook the fish will take about another 3 minutes from flipping. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

Fill tortillas with fish mixture, chopped vegetables, cabbage, chopped ciclantro and lemon zest. Dig in, there's so much bright, fresh flavor you'll never miss the fat!

    Really enjoyed these! I used Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning Blend in place of the taco seasoning, and also used corn tortillas. These are a definite addition to my dinner rotation. - 3/30/10

    made this without the avocado and taco seasoning, and instead marinated the fish in lemon & lime juice for 2 hours prior to cooking. Still fantastic! - 12/27/10

    I cut the recipe in half as there are only two of us. Also, I used lower sodium taco seasoning to cut down on the salt. Great recipe. - 9/5/17
