I love fish tacos.  They are full of flavor, fun to put together and super healthy!  This dish is super easy and tastes great with a dollop of Greek yogurt, a little homemade guacamole and cucumber-cilantro salad with halved cherry tomatoes.  I like to make extra fish so I can enjoy the leftovers over my salad the next day for lunch!

Fish Tacos

1 cup cilantro

2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon cumin

½ small red chili (seeded)

2 teaspoons olive oil

juice of one lime

zest of one lime

pinch of salt

1 ½ pounds snapper filet (or any firm white fish) cut into 1-2 inch wide strips

 

Blend together cilantro, paprika, cumin, red chili, olive oil, limejuice, zest and salt into a paste. Pour over snapper and marinate for 15 minutes.

Heat grill or a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and cook the fish for 3-4 minutes per side, until cooked through.

 

Serve in a warm corn tortilla with butter lettuce, a dollop of Greek yogurt, a little homemade guacamole and cucumber-cilantro salad with halved cherry tomatoes…YUM!
