Fish Tacos


3 Tilapia Fillets
2 TBS Olive Oil
dash of salt and pepper
dash of paprika
dash of oregano

1/2 head of cabbage (shredded)
8 corn tortillas

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 lime, juiced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced (I didn't add this the cayenne gave it enough kick)
1 teaspoon minced capers
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (I would cut back to 1/2 tsp.)


Drizzle fish with olive oil and add a dash of salt, pepper, paprika, and oregano on both sides of fish. Place fish in a medium heat skillet. Cook fish on both sides for 3 minutes or until fish is flaky.

To make white sauce: In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, capers, oregano, cumin, dill, and cayenne.

Cut up cabbage into thin slices. Slighty warm tortillas in skillet and serve with gucamole, lime and white sauce.

The Results:
I love fish tacos and I have had a billon fish tacos in my life so I would have to say that they were average. Growing up we went to Mexico probably 4 or 5 times a year. So when we would go we always had fish tacos. I just wish I could recreate that prefect fish taco. I was trying to make these healthy though so maybe that is why these were just average. I remember the fish was fried but I am trying to eat somewhat healthy. Oh well....these were good for a healthy taco but just average for the Best fish taco. I got the White Sauce recipe from allrecipes. Also be careful of the cayenne pepper. It made the white sauce pretty hot. I would cut back on it.

Would you believe I never had a fish taco? I think when I am in Indianapolis I may have to have my brother take me to a Mexican restaurant. Grumpy doesn't care for Mexican food so I don't get to go much! I don't think the places we do have around here even have fish tacos though!!

I am a huge fish taco fan too. It's hard to recreate a really good fish taco like you get in Mexico.

I've never had a fish taco. I've seen them before but have not tried them. You have inspired me to get them on the menu.

I love fish tacos - they remind me of sitting outside during the summer. I should make some now to get rid of the snow!
