Healthy Fish Tacos!

Healthy Fish Tacos!!

Cincinnati News, FOX19-WXIX TV

This meal is not only easy on the pockets, it's also easy on time! It can easily be made in 30 minutes AND will impress all the homies ( or in-laws)! If you want to fire the grill up you can get fancy and actually grill your fish as well as your pineapple prior to cutting it up for the salsa. I can only imagine how great it would taste with the smokey flavor!!

Honestly, I love Bibb/Boston lettuce it will be hard to ever use any other lettuce for bun-less dishes I make (i.e. turkey burgers)! I typically buy whats called 'living' lettuce, the roots are still attached for this. Living lettuce is able to literally live longer since the roots are still attached thus making it much for functional for other dishes throughout the week! Whole Foods offers a hydroponic version for $2.99, but I bought mine from Meijer's for $1.99!  

Here's how to make some these easy and healthy fish tacos!!


    5-6 pieces of Tilapia
  1 tsp salt and pepper for fish
  1 cup of fresh cute cabbage or buy the precut bag of coleslaw
  Bibb/Boston Lettuce
  1 cup sliced and cubed pineapple
    1 can Rotel (or tomatoes, whateva' fits your fancy)
    ¼ cup chopped onion (optional)
      Juice of 1 lime
    1 Head of Bibb or Boston lettuce
  1 tablespoon olive oil
½ tablespoon honey
½ tablespoon vinegar or vinaigrette of your choice

1.       Pre heat oven to 350 degrees, wash fish and place on baking dish. Season with salt and pepper and ½ of the lime juice, set the rest aside and reserve. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked. Remove from oven and allow to cool!
