Cilantro and Lime Fish Tacos

Found this site on my facebook and this person is always posting such yummy looking pictures. So I decided one day that I should make one of his recipes. They look good and sounded good!


1 pound white fish such as tilapia, cod, etc.
1 tablespoon oil
1 lime, juice and zest
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 green onion, finely sliced
1 handful cilantro, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin, toasted and ground
salt and pepper to taste
8 (4 inch) corn tortillas
3 cups cabbage, shredded
1 batch cilantro lime crema – see below
2 large avocados, sliced


Marinate the fish in the oil, lime juice and zest,



green onion, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper for 10-20 minutes.

Grill the fish over medium-high heat until cooked, about 4-6 minutes per side. The fish will be cooked when it flakes easily and it is no longer translucent.

Flake the fish
and serve in tortillas garnished with your favorite toppings.


Cilantro and Lime Crema

1/2 cup crema or sour cream
1 green onion, sliced
1 handful cilantro
1/2 lime, juice and zest
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (optional)


Puree everything in a food processor.
