Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos

A fresh and flavorful way to spice up your fish and it’s quick enough to make on a week night. Normally I would eat it with avocado but my avocados weren’t ready. It is 319 calories for 2 tacos. You can double this for leftovers.


1lb tilapia fillet

1 tsp olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

4 garlic cloves, finely minced

2 jalapeño peppers, chopped

2 cups diced Tomatoes

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

3 tbsp lime juice 

Salt and pepper to taste

8   5 inch white corn tortillas 

Heat olive oil in a skillet. Sauté onion until translucent, then add garlic. Mix well.

Place tilapia in the skillet and cook until the flesh starts to flake. 

Add jalapeño, Tomatoes, cilantro and lime juice. 

Sauté over medium high heat for about 5 minutes, breaking up the flesh with a spoon to get everything to mix well; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile heat tortillas for a few minutes on each side ( no oil needed). Serve a little over 1/4 fish on each tortilla.
