A few weeks ago my friend Lola asked me to put together a recipe for fish tacos and post it. I’m sure there are hundreds of recipes for fish tacos all over the internet on food websites and blogs, but I decided to make fish tacos on my own without the help of an online recipe. I took what I know and applied it to this recipe.
I used tilapia since it’s a very mild fish and as I stated before in another recipe it is inexpensive and takes on the flavors you cook it with. The thought of a tomato based salsa with fish doesn’t sound too appetizing so I decided to make my mango salsa (click here to find the recipe) to go with it. The mango salsa uses tropical fruits which also gives this dish a more summer feel.
I know it seems like I keep posting recipes that have a Mexican theme, but it is the middle of the summer and it seems like most people crave Mexican flavors when it is hot outside. Plus the types of meals I am putting together don’t take much time to prepare, are on the lighter side as well as low in fat and calories.
- 1 lb fresh Tilapia ( you can also use fresh cod)
- 2 cloves garlic. minced
- 1/4 cup red onion, chopped (use any type of onion)
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbs olive oil
