This is my FAVORITE healthy fish tacos recipe.  The red cabbage slaw goes so well with the fish.  I want to make it again while I am writing this.  It’s definitely a family favorite.

You’ll want to make this every Tuesday (or any other day). Why not line up some tacos on your meal plan for every Tuesday. You could do these fish tacos one week, some carnitas pork tacos another week, and maybe try something weird like banh mi tacos another week. Just browse the taco section here.

Instructions

  1. Combine 1/4 c. jalepeno juice, 1/4 c. avocado oil, 2 Tbsp. cilantro, 2 tsp. garlic, and 1 lb tilapia in a gallon sized zip top bag. Marinate at least one hour, or for as long as overnight.
  2. Combine shredded cabbage, sour cream, lime juice, salt, pepper, 1 Tbsp. chopped jalepenos, and green onions in a small bowl. Stir until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat remaining avocado oil. Add marinated fish. Cook 4-6 minutes, stirring frequently, or until fish is opaque and cooked through. Add fish, cabbage slaw, and any remaining cilantro to corn tortillas.

The red cabbage slaw is what makes this healthy fish tacos recipe. The tangy lime and spicy jalapeno flavors meld together in such an amazing way.

Clean Eating Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw

Lightly frying the corn tortillas in a pan with a little olive oil makes for great tacos. Just enough to start some brown spots but not enough to make them rigid.
