Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos (from Fiber Up Slim Down Cookbook)
Makes 4 Servings
212 Calories per serving
22g Protein, 6g Fat, 3g Fiber, 19g Carbs

1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
1 TBSP lime juice
2 tilapia filets (6 oz) halved lengthwise
1/4 tsp chipotle chile powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBSP fresh cilantro, chopped
4 multigrain tortillas (I use Ole Extreme Wellness)
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
4 TBSP fat-free sour cream

1. Melt 1 tsp of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2-3 minutes.  Stir in the tomato and cook until wilted, 2 minutes.  Add the lime juice and transfer mixture to a bowl.  Wipe out the skillet and melt the remaining 2 tsp of butter over medium high heat.  Sprinkle the tilapia with the ground chipotle powder and salt.  Add to the skillet and cook 3 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily.  Add the onion mixture and cook for 1 minute.  Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro.

2. Heat the tortillas according to package directions. Fill each with 1/4 of the tilapia mixture, 1/4 cup lettuce, a 1 tbsp sour-cream.  Serve immediately.

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
