Healthy Fish Tacos

Healthy Fish Tacos
adapted from

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
1 1/2 limes, juiced
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
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
salt and pepper

2 Tbs olive oil
1 pound mahi mahi fillets (or cod, or other white fish), cut into 2 to 3 ounce portions
1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas
1 package shredded cabbage

In a medium bowl, mix together the two yogurts. Stir in the fresh lime juice until the consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, capers, oregano, cumin, dill, cayenne, salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a skillet. Season the fish with salt and pepper and place in the skillet for 5 minutes or until the fish is golden. Flip and cook on the other side until cooked through.
Place the tortillas in a toaster oven set to broil (or in your oven set to broil). They will warm up and become pliable. Don’t worry if they puff up. To serve place the fish in a tortilla and top with shredded cabbage and white sauce.

I also took some of the cabbage and mixed it with the sauce and ate is as a coleslaw side.

    I usually splurge and get the red cabbage, because it’s just a little prettier and better. I love fish tacos. Great recipe.

    Red cabbage is a great idea! I also spiralized some zucchini and put the sauce on that for a little more nutrition and extra veggies. Yum!
