Fish Tacos

Every day Martha Stewart sends me a text! She tells me what’s for dinner. I usually ignore her & she never gets offended. One day she sent a recipe for Baja Fish Tacos & it has been on my yummy list since. One day she was late sending a note & Jared said, “She must be having a hard time deciding what’s for dinner!” Cute.


1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream (or Greek yogurt)

2 tablespoons lime juice

Coarse salt & ground pepper

1/4 small red cabbage, thinly shredded (about 2-1/2 cups)

4 scallions, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1-2 pounds tilapia fillets, cut into 16 equal strips OR lightly breaded fish sticks (green bag @ Costco)

8 uncooked tortillas (at Costco in the fresh section)


Mix sour cream, lime juice, salt & pepper. Refrigerate until serving time.

Brown tortillas on both sides in pan on medium-high heat. Oil helps but is not necessary. (There’s PLENTY of fat in these yummy tortillas.) Stack together.

For fish stick variation: Cook according to package directions. There is very little breading. There’s enough fish if you cook three fish sticks per taco.

For tilapia, cook on an indoor grill until just cooked. (5-6 minutes? Fish should flake easily with a fork.)

Assemble tacos with tortillas, cabbage, scallions, fish, & sour cream mixture.

What do I eat?

Each time I eat something, I am supposed to write it down or log it with LoseIt! on my iphone. I am not diligent all the time. But when I consistently write everything down & meet my calorie goals, I lose weight every single week. This is my log for last week. My Wednesday was kinda crazy but I ran 9 miles in the morning so I had an extra 1000 calories to play with a little.
