Baked Tilapia Tacos With Avocado Cream

Every once in awhile I get in a Mexican food mood. These tacos are light and won’t make you feel weighed down. Besides fish tacos are delicious!


1 Pound Tilapia Fillets

Vegetable Cooking Spray

1/2 Teaspoon Grated Lime Zest

2 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice

1 Tablespoon Canola Oil

1 Minced Garlic Cloves

1/2 Teaspoon Hot Pepper Sauce

1/4 Teaspoon Ground Pepper

1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

12 Hard Taco Shells

1 1/2 Cups Fresh Salsa

2 Cups Lettuce

1 Medium Diced Avocado

1 Cup Sour Cream

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 8×11 glass-baking dish with cooking spray. In a small-size bowl mix lime peel, lime juice, garlic, red pepper sauce, pepper, and kosher salt. Put fish in prepared dish in a single layer. Spread sauce over fish. Place in oven, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes until fish is opaque and flakes easily. While fish is baking combine avocado and sour cream in a food processor or blender until smooth. Remove tilapia from oven and pull fish apart until all fillets are shredded. To assemble tacos place a layer of fish, salsa, and lettuce into taco shell. Drizzle with avocado cream. Serves 4 to 6
