Tilapia Taco Tuesday
After the holidays we'll be running a Transformation Challenge (more details coming soon!) and we wanted to share with you one of our FAVORITE recipes from the nutrition guide! What's better than tacos? (Answer: absolutely nothing). So without further adieu, here's our Tasty-tip-transformation-taco-Tuesday recipe-- try saying that three times fast!
Citrus Fish Tacos (Serves 2)
• 2 large oranges (juiced)
• ½ lime (juiced)
• 3 TB olive oil
• 1 tsp. cumin powder
• ½ tsp. salt
• 2 wild-caught tilapia fillets (cut in 1” chunks) you could also use Mahi Mahi
• 3-6 butter lettuce leaves
• ½ red pepper (diced)
• ½ red onion (diced)
• ½ mango (diced)
• ½ avocado (sliced)
Directions: Mix the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, cumin, and salt in a bowl and combine well.
Gently place the pieces of Tilapia into a large Ziploc bag and pour in the juice. Marinade for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator, flipping the bag over about half way through.
Next, heat some olive or coconut oil over a large skillet. When the pan is warm, add the Tilapia and cook for about 4-5 minutes on 1 side, then turning only once, finish cooking on the other side (about 8-9 minutes total)
Then, simply prepare your tacos to your liking, adding the fish, pepper, onion, & mango! (be creative and add anything else you think may taste great on there!)
It’s very refreshing and absolutely DELICIOUS! Once you get the marinade in the fridge, it will only take you about 10 minutes to prepare them. Serves 2.
