¡tacos de pescado!

happy cinco de mayo!  one of my favorite holidays to celebrate.  i love mexican food – and margaritas, but that’s another post.  my favorite thing to eat of the mexican style is the fish taco.  Mad Mex and Houlihan’s have some awesome fish tacos but it can get a little expensive if i eat there every time i want them.  tonight i put a little twist on the fish taco.  a little bit healthier, too.

4 oz. tilapia (fresh or thawed if frozen – i used a frozen panko tilapia)

whole wheat tortilla

1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/3 cup red bell pepper, chopped

1/4 cup black beans

1 teaspoon taco seasoning

lime juice

pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

put the fish, onion and pepper in a bowl.  give them a few spritzes of non-stick spray and sprinkle with taco seasoning and lime.  toss.  place the fish mixture onto a piece of foil and fold into a pouch.

put the pouch on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked and flakes with a fork.  drain excess liquid and set aside.

warm the tortillas and add the black beans and then the fish and vegetable mixture.  wrap and enjoy!

i enjoyed this with some cilantro and some mild green sauce.

this was very quick, a little on the sweet side and delicious.  very filling.  arriba!
