June 2020: Easy Fish Tacos

These fish tacos have been my weeknight goto lately, as they are light, flavorful and easy to prepare. I recommend choosing a firmer fish like Mahi Mahi which has a sweet taste and compliments the seasonings of the rub. I also discovered gluten free almond flour tortillas by Siete which I’m obsessed with, but flour tortillas would work too. It’s what’s for dinner: Monday, Tuesday, Wed…

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 pounds of Mahi Mahi or Halibut
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Rub:

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

Fish Taco Sauce (optional)

  • Take 3 Tbsp of cottage cheese and mix with 2 Tbsp of Salsa. May need to triple recipe. (Cottage cheese is much better on digestive tract then sour cream or mayo)

Tacos

  • 8-Siete Almond tortillas or tortillas of choice if serving 4, or just heat up 2 and save the rest of the fish in airtight container for following nites.
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Avocado slices

Instructions:

  • Combine rub ingredients and rub into fish fillets.
  • When ready to cook, preheat oven to 400. Place seasoned fish on baking sheet or parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until flaky and cooked.
  • Heat tortillas according to package directions.
  • Break fish into large chunks and divide between tortillas. Top with shredded lettuce and taco sauce.
