Cilantro & lime fish taco recipe.

This is a healthy twist on regular tacos because instead of using ground beef they are made with grilled fish. For those of you not into the idea of fish, don't be afraid of these because the fish is super flavorful and has a bit of a spice to it without a lot of over-powering fishy flavor. This is one of my favorite dishes so I would say that it's definitely worth a try!

1 pound of tilapia (or any other white fish)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lime, juice and zest
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 green onion, finely sliced
1 handful of cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
8 small corn tortillas
3 cups red cabbage, shredded
2 large avocados, sliced
fresh pico de gallo or fresh salsa
1 batch of cilantro lime crema (see below)
a sprinkle of grated manchego cheese

Start by marinating the fish in olive oil, lime juice & zest, jalapeno, garlic, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper for about 10-20 minutes. Then grill the fish for 4-6 minutes per side on medium-high heat until it is no longer translucent. Flake the fish and serve in tortilla shells with cabbage, avocado, fresh pico de gallo and top with a sprinkle of manchego cheese and cilantro lime crema (all you need to do to make this is puree together a 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 chopped green onion, 1 chopped jalapeno, 1/2 a limes juice & zest, and a handful of cilantro.)

Mmm... I hope you enjoy!
