Fish Tacos

i have to say, i am a little excited with myself. today i did a new yoga pose i haven't done before. i held bird of paradise pose. yay! i admit, that my leg wasn't extended straight up like this very talented girl, but it was a start. i'd like to think N would be proud of me:) the pose really does look like the flower, doesn't it?

i guess it affected me because i was in the mood to do something a little different in the kitchen tonight too. i had some tilapia in the freezer and since i am trying to use stuff up that we have stashed in the chilly temps, i made fish tacos with a lime sour cream. it was delicious!

i "grilled" the tilapia after sprinkling both sides with a little salt, garlic powder, and chili powder. (i don't think you can technically call it grilling on an stove, indoors. grilling requires actual fire, but i used a grill pan to get the look of grilling but unfortunately you can't substitute that smokey grill flavor.) meanwhile, i stirred together 1/4 cup of light sour cream, 1/4 cup of 0% fage, juice of 1/2 a lime, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp of chili powder. i let that sit so the flavors could mingle and get to know each other while i finished grilling the fish.
i cut up some cherry tomatoes and opened up a beautiful looking avocado and will use the other half to make a little guacamole tomorrow.
to assemble to tacos i used a whole wheat flour tortilla and spread about a tablespoon of the lime sour cream, then layered the fish

with the sliced avocado and tomatoes, 
sprinkled some shredded mexican cheese on top, wrap it up, and dug in.

so good and refreshing. i could really taste the lime. this would be a great, quick summer meal (or a winter meal when you are longing for the summer:) the only thing i wish i had in there was some cabbage for a little crunch. next time . . . because there will be a next time.


  1. goof job P! I am proud of you :)

  2. I bet you have to be under thirty to do that, right?

  3. Ha ha - I happened to make these for dinner last night too. I use old bay blackening season, sour cream, avocado, and red cabbage. So good! Wegmans has nice big bags of frozen talapia.
