Today is Cinco De Mayo and with all the great Mexican food out there, it may be difficult to find healthy, low calorie food that is also delicious! This recipe for fish tacos is a perfect alternative for the day by being low in calories, gluten free, and still delicious and fresh tasting!

Serves 4
Time required 15 minutes
Difficulty level 2
Cost of ingredients 7 USD

1 pound (500g) Snapper, or a firm white fish
1 lime, juiced
2 teaspoons (10ml)  olive oil
¼ cup (4g) cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon (5ml)  paprika
1 cup (250ml) cabbage, shredded
1 small onion, minced
1 roma tomato, chopped
2 pinches of salt

Rinse and pat dry the fish. Sprinkle one pinch of salt, half of the paprika, 1 half of the cilantro and half of the lime juice on the fish. Pour the oil into pan over medium high heat and cook each side about 1 or 2 minutes, depending on the thickness it may take more time. Fish is done when flesh is a solid white color and is firm to the touch. Remove from the pan and break into chunks.

In a separate bowl mix together the lime juice, onion, tomato, cabbage,  paprika, a pinch of salt and the rest of the cilantro.

Warm the tortillas in a oven for about a minute (a microwave will work too, but for only about 30 seconds tops). Spoon the fish on to the warm tortilla and then some of the salsa mix on top and enjoy!
