Fish Tacos with Lime Cilantro Sauce

This is a very REFRESHING dinner that I like to throw together during my healthy eating times. I love the FLAVORS of cilantro and lime—so tangy and powerful, and the PERFECT sauce for these excellent tacos.

Fish Tacos with Lime Cilantro Sauce
Lime Cilantro Sauce
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup light or fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup light or fat-free sour cream
2 teaspoons lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced

Fish Tacos
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 pounds any white fish (halibut, mahi-mahi, tilapia, etc.)
Small flour tortillas (or corn tortillas if you prefer)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

To make the sauce, combine all the ingredients and then refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the tacos, combine all the seasonings and then coat your choice of fish. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until done (the fish will flake easily with a fork). When fish is done, break into pieces with a fork and then scoop in the center of your tortillas. Drizzle the sauce over top and serve. Makes about 4-6 servings.

TIP: To add some extra nutrients, top the fish with shredded cabbage or romaine lettuce and then drizzle with the sauce. You can also serve with lime wedges on the side so people can squeeze on extra juice.
