Fish Tacos with cucumber salsa

Tasty fish with homemade salsa wrapped in a tortilla?! Yes please! This recipe came about because one day I popped my head off the couch pillow and said “I’m gonna make fish tacos!” and Husband said “OK”…. this is how most of our culinary decisions happen.

Makes 4 servings: 252 calories | 28g carbs | 24 g protein | 6g fat

Here’s what you need!

1 pound tilapia (or whatever fish your seafood loving head desires)

the juice of 2 limes (or lemons.. I used lemons… because I ran out of limes)

2 tsp taco seasoning

crushed red pepper

1/2 cup cucumber, diced

1/4 cup red onion, diced

1 jalapeno, diced

salt and pepper

cilantro (fresh or dried)

shredded lettuce

4 tortillas (I used Mission brand medium soft taco tortillas… the calories for the recipe reflect this)

Here’s what you do!

1. In a bowl, combine the cucumber, onion, jalapeno and the juice of one lime (or lemon). Add cilantro, salt and pepper to taste, refrigerate until ready to serve.

2. Preheat over to 375˚F

3. Place your fish on a baking sheet. Apply salt, pepper, taco seasoning, and crushed red pepper liberally.

4. Bake fish for 20-30 minutes or until opaque and flaky

5. Remove fish from over and use a fork to break into bite size pieces.

6. Assemble your taco!!! Top with my crema for a tangy twist!

Happy noshing!
