Total time
Serves: 8-10
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless tilapia fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse Salt and ground pepper
  • ¼ cup sour cream-low fat if wanted
  • 1 lime, half finely zested and juiced, half cut into wedges
  • Green Hot Sauce, such as Green Pepper Tabasco
  • 12 Corn Tortillas
  • ½ small head red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Coconut Flakes
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped (I left this out)
  1. Heat Broiler, with rack in highest position.
  2. Pat fish dry with paper towels and gently coat with oil on a foil lined baking sheet.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Broil fish until top is browned and flesh is opaque throughout, stirring or flipping if necessary, about 5-10 minutes.
  5. While fish is cooking, in a small bowl combine sour cream, lime zest and juice, and a few dashes of hot sauce.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. If wanted, toast the tortillas (we opted not to, they tend to fall apart)
  8. Divide fish evenly in tortillas and top with sour cream sauce, cabbage, cilantro, cheese, a bit of coconut flakes and onion if wanted.
