Fish tacos are my new favorite thing—lighter and healthier than beef tacos smothered in cheese. Try adding tomatoes, green onions and chopped jalapeno on top. —Deb Perry, Traverse City, Michigan

  • 2 cups angel hair coleslaw mix
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • TACOS:
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • Optional toppings: Hot pepper sauce, chopped tomatoes, green onions and jalapeno pepper


  1. In a small bowl, toss coleslaw mix with oil and lime juice; refrigerate until serving. In another bowl, mash avocado with a fork; stir in sour cream, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper.
  2. Sprinkle tilapia with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add tilapia; cook until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve in tortillas with coleslaw, guacamole and desired toppings.
