Tilapia Tacos Recipe

I absolutely love fish tacos and wanted to create a slimmed-down recipe so I could enjoy them anytime I wanted. I never have any complaints when I serve these for dinner!&mdashJade Peterson, Portland, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon green hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each), cut lengthwise in half
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 can (15 ounces) Southwestern black beans
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 3 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 medium lime, cut into 8 wedges

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg, milk and pepper sauce. In another shallow bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, cumin and pepper. Dip tilapia in egg mixture, then in cornmeal mixture, patting to help coating adhere. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Drizzle tops with oil. Bake 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • 2. Meanwhile, place beans in a small saucepan; heat through over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Serve tilapia in tortillas; top with beans, tomatoes, cabbage, salsa verde and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges. Yield: 4 servings.
