Serves 2

  • 8 Organic corn tortillas
  • One pound of fish (I typically go to Whole Foods and ask what they have that is organic… best kinds of fish include flounder, sole and tilapia)
  • 3 cups Red cabbage, sliced thin
  • ½ small red onion, minced
  • One avocado
  • 1 small Jalapeno, sliced thin (or less if you like less spice)
  • Juice of two limes (divided)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Make the sauce: Mash avocado and blend with jalapeno pepper, red onion and the juice of one lime. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving. (You should prepare this at least one hour before eating so that the flavors have an opportunity to blend). Click here for my delicious traditional guacamole recipe video!

Cabbage: Put the shredded cabbage in a container and add about 3 tablespoons of olive oil, the juice of the second lime and salt and pepper. Mix well, cover and refrigerate.

For the Fish: Sprinkle salt and pepper on the fish and bake until done, about 8 to 10 minutes.

To assemble tacos: Warm the tortillas. Add one tablespoon of avocado mix to the tortilla. Layer a piece of fish and top off with the cabbage slaw.

      Hey Billie! You can use roasted vegetables as an alternative OR something like grilled firm tofu…. I have to say, it is really the cabbage and the guac that make this dish so delicious, not so much the fish 🙂
      Hope all is well with you!

    Love the idea, but I am not crazy about the fish. If If substitute it with grilled chichen, would it make that much of a difference?
    Regardless, I am going to give it a try. Love tacos, and this is certainly a free- guilt way to eat them.
    Keep up the good work,

    This really does sound simple! I was planning to make tacos for my family tonight the same old way and can’t wait to try this healthy alternative for something we all love so much.
