Tilapia Tacos

1 lb fresh tilapia
juice from one lemon & some zest
1/2 jalapeno finely diced
1/4 bunch cilantro
2 tbl olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and coat the fish before you grill it. cook 6 minutes each side... or until firm

4-6 flour tortillas

1 bag shredded cabbage
1 jalapeno finely diced
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
4 lemons- juiced
salt & pepper to taste
1 dollop greek yogurt
rest of cilantro bunch rough chopped
1/2 onion finely chopped
Mix all ingredients together.

This makes a light, delicious and fresh taco- you can also add super thin julienned apple for more crunch and sweetness.

Enjoy! (And yes I, the none fish eater- ate it! I flaked the fish and mixed it into the cabbage and ate it with tortilla chips the next day too!)

If you are not watching what you eat- marinate the tilapia in 1/4 cup greek yogurt, with lime juice, jalapeno, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes... dip that in panko flakes (creates a crust/batter) and fry up in 6-8 TBL olive oil... make sure to cook fully on each side before flipped to get a good browned crust.
