Tilapia Tacos


Tilapia-Tacos I decided not to do my eating for your health post this week – read, I ran out of time to do the research because of final exams.  But, the next holiday coming up is Cinco de Mayo, and anything with even a hint of Mexican influence is a favorite of mine, and these tilapia tacos are actually quite healthy, so I decided to share them.

The tilapia is brushed in olive oil and sprinkled with Old Bay seasoning and baked.  They are served in soft flour tortillas and topped with a not-too-hot jalapeno coleslaw.  I also topped mine with tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and cheese.
