Fish Tacos with Chipotle Sauce

Ingredients

Coleslaw

  • 4 cups coleslaw mix (or shredded cabbage and carrots)
  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Fish

  • 4 fillets firm white fish such as tilapia
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika, optional
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Chipotle Yogurt Sauce

  • 1 chipotle pepper, seeds removed
  • 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lowfat mayonnaise
  • dash of salt

To Serve

  • Corn or taco size flour tortillas (about 12)
  • Optional toppings:tomatoes, chopped avocado or guacamole, tomato salsa

Directions 

Coleslaw

  • Mix all Coleslaw ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cover and chill until time to serve.

Fish

  • Drizzle olive oil on both sides of fish fillets, using your fingers to lightly cover all the pieces.
  • Sprinkle chili powder, smoked paprika and a little salt and pepper on each piece.
  • Grill or broil fish on top of a lightly greased piece of foil until done (this keeps the fish from sticking to the grill). Flip the fish halfway through cooking, or just leave it alone and let it finish cooking without turning.

Chipotle Yogurt Sauce

  • Finely mince chipotle pepper (without the seeds or else it will be way too spicy). Mix with yogurt, mayonnaise and a dash of salt.

 

To Serve

  • Lightly warm corn tortillas over gas flame or in a pan on the stove (you can also wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave until soft, about 30-45 seconds). Let everyone serve themselves by topping the corn tortilla with some Grilled Fish, Coleslaw and a drizzle of Chipotle Yogurt Sauce.
