Healthy Dinner Recipe — Fish Tacos

Since today’s Know Thyself Community Conversation is health care reform, I thought, why not focus this blog on eating healthier. I love me some chicken wings as much as anyone else here in Buffalo, but if we want to avoid those crazy hospital bills, we should take some preventive measures for health’s sake! Check out this healthy receipe for Spicy Fish Tocos.

Tonight try something different for dinner. Everyone loves tacos!  This popular dish has outstanding potential to be ridiculously healthy, as well as amazingly tasty…with the right ingredients, of course! For this version, cilantro, lime juice and chili powder turn up the taste in this quick and healthy twist on taco night.

Ingredients

1/2 cup light sour cream
1 teaspoon adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles
1 cup peeled, coarsely shredded jicama (3 ounces)
1 cup shredded red cabbage (2 ounces)
1 cup shredded carrots (about 2 medium carrots)
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

1 1/4 pounds tilapia fillets
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed slightly
Lime wedges for serving

Directions

1. Preheat broiler with rack 3 inches from heat. To make crema: Combine the sour cream and adobo sauce in a small bowl, whisking well; set aside and allow flavors to meld. Meanwhile, combine jicama, cabbage, carrots, cilantro leaves, lime juice and zest, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a medium bowl; toss well. Chill until ready to use.

2. Place the fish in a broiler pan; brush with remaining teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with the chili powder, paprika, cumin, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Broil until the fish is cooked through and slightly charred around edges (6-8 minutes). Remove fish from oven; flake with a fork.

3. Place about 1/4 cup slaw on each tortilla; top with 1/4 cup cooked fish. Top each taco with about 1 tablespoon crema; serve with lime wedges.
