Picky Palate's Tilapia Tacos with Cilantro Cream

Picky Palate came up with this recipe, and it is fast, easy, and healthy.  The recipe comes together in about 15 minutes from start to finish, and it is super tasty.  The cilantro cream is good, and the fish is light and easy.  We all gave this a 9, and the calories per taco are only 197, and it makes 10 tacos.  I think we needed more spice rub for the fish, but it was alright the way the recipe stated it.  Here is the recipe:

1 t olive oil
1 T plus 1/2 t lime juice
1/4 t cumin
1/4 t salt, divided
1/4 t garlic salt
4 tilapia filets
4 oz sour cream
1/2 c chopped cilantro leaves
1/4 t Tabasaco
10 corn tortillas
2 c shredded cabbage
2 large avocados, peeled and diced

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add 1 T of the lime juice and swirl to coat the pan.  Add the cumin, 1/8 t of the salt and the garlic salt to a small bowl, mix to combine, and rub over both sides of the tilapia filets.  Cook the fillets through, the remove and cut it into bite size pieces.  To make the sauce, add the sour cream, cilnatro, Tabasco, and 1/2 t lime juice and 1/8 t salt.  Stir to combine, then serve with the fish and cabbage and avocados.

  1. Did you put tomatoes in too, along with the cabbage and avocados? This sounds really good. Did the boys and Aaron like the cabbage? Love mom
