some nights the last thing i want to do is come home and cook. it doesn't happen often, but when it does it hits me like a ton of bricks. however, with this recipe on hand i'm never stuck with nothing to eat. the ingredients are readily available, inexpensive, and the preparation could not be faster.
enjoy these fresh healthy tacos when you are running short on time but want something long on flavor.
4 fresh tilapia filets
8 crunchy corn taco shells*
1/2 a head of napa cabbage, shredded
queso fresco or cheddar cheese (optional)
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1 chipotle chile in adobo, minced fine
goya adobo seasoning
heat olive oil (about 1 to 2 tablespoons) in a large pan over medium high heat. cut fish into chunks about 1 inch in size. add them to the pan and sprinkle with the adobo seasoning mix (use this to taste, it's not spicy hot, just spicy flavorful). saute until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes, and then remove.
shred the cabbage and set aside. in a small bowl mix the minced chipotle chile and the sour cream to make a spicy sour cream.
spread the sour cream on the inside of the taco shells, and then add fish to the bottom, then napa cabbage, and sprinkle cheese (if using) on top. serve warm with a slice of lime (to sqeeze on at the last second) and enjoy!
