Healthy Recipes: Fish Tacos

If you're a fan of fish and Mexican food, you'll love this healthy recipe for fish tacos! We all know how fish - an excellent source of protein - is perfect for healthy eating, but sometimes it's difficult to come up with something the whole family will enjoy. Halibut is a versatile mild-flavored white fish, and it's relatively inexpensive.  So try tempting some finicky kids with these fish tacos - you (and they) might just be surprised with the result!

Makes 8 servings

2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice   
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice   
1 pound halibut, cut into bite-sized pieces   
1 tablespoon canola oil    
1 cup green cabbage, shredded   
1 cup red cabbage, shredded   
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
3/4 cup nonfat sour cream   
3/4 cup salsa   
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas    
lime wedges


1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine taco seasoning, lime juice and orange juice and mix well. Add fish and toss to coat.
2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet to medium high heat. Add fish and sauté for about 5 minutes or until done.
3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine green and red cabbage, and green onions. In a separate bowl, stir together sour cream and salsa and mix well.
4. Heat tortillas according to package instructions. Spoon 1/4 cup of cabbage mixture in center of tortilla then equally divide fish and place on top of cabbage vegetables. Top with up to 3 tablespoons salsa blend and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Fold or roll up tortillas and enjoy.

I LOVE fish tacos. Fish is so high in protein and low in fat -- it's perfect. And I know that corn tortillas are the traditional way to make them, but sometimes I'll switch in small wheat flour tortillas just for fun. They're a little higher in cals, but not by much. :)
