Fish Tacos


Makes: 4 servings (2 tacos each)


1 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 cup shredded cabbage
1 lb white fish-any kind
8 small corn tortillas
1 teaspoon chili powder (more or less to taste)

  1. Mix onion, cilantro, and cabbage together in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lightly sprinkle fish fillets with chili powder and lay out on sheet.
  3. Place in the oven about 6 inches from the broiler and broil for approximately 3 to 4 minutes, or until fish is fully cooked. You will know the fish is done when it pulls apart easily when separated with a fork.
  4. Lightly fry tortillas on an oiled griddle or skillet, or heat tortillas in the microwave oven for just a few seconds until softened and hot.
  5. Fill tortilla with fish, cabbage, onion, and cilantro and fold in half. Serve with salsa and citrus slices, if desired.
