Fish Tacos & Black Bean Salad

This is the best fish taco recipe I've ever had! It's quick, easy, and light. I can make it in a hurry when I need to eat something light before a workout and it holds well over night so you can have it for lunch the next day as well!

Original Recipes: Fish Tacos & Black Bean Salad

1 lb tilapia filets, skinless
2 tbsp EVOO
1/4 cup sour cream
1 lime cut into wedges
hot sauce
12 corn tortillas
1/2 small head red cabbage (I just buy pre-shredded red cabbage)
1 cup fresh cilantro
2 small white onion, chopped
cayenne pepper
chili powder

for black bean salad
1/3 cup fresh lime juice

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro 
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp sugar (to taste)

1. Heat broiler. Chop ingredients for black bean salad and drain/rinse beans. I chose to warm my black beans and corn before making the salad. 

2. Pat fish dry and lightly coat with EVOO. Sprinkle each piece on the top side with cumin, chili powder and cayenne to suit your taste. Place in broiler for 4-6 min depending on thickness of filet. Chop onion for tacos.

3. Place all ingredients for black bean salad in a large bowl and combine. Add S&P and sugar to taste. 

4. Dampen a paper towel and place corn tortillas on paper towels and wrap them lightly. Place in microwave for 30-60 seconds to soften.

5. Remove fish from oven and spread/flake with a fork. Place in tortilla and top with sour cream, red cabbage, onion and cilantro. Serve with black bean salad.
