Easy Fish Tacos
Eating fatty fish (salmon, char, herring, mackerel, sardines and trout) a couple times a week is a great way to add healthy sources of protein, vitamins and minerals including omega-3 fatty acids.
Benefits of Omega -3 fatty acids:
- Improved delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells because of reduced blood viscosity
- Enhanced aerobic metabolism
- Promotes a healthy heart
- Improves functioning of the nervous system
- Helps balance hormones
- Reduces cholesterol
- New studies are showing evidence that Omega – 3 fatty acids may aid depression, ADD, and sleep
1 pound fish of your choice
1 can Rotel
1 Tsp Chili powder or 1 chopped pepper in adobo sauce
1/2 tsp cumin
Juice of 1 lime
(OPT.) Splash of Tequila
Combine the Rotel, lemon juice, and cumin, chili and or adobo and Tequila. Pour into a frying pan. Gently place the fish in and bring to a simmer allowing the juices to cook down until fish is nice and flaky.
Remove from heat and chop the fish into the sauce. Serve with lime, coleslaw or shredded cabbage & sour cream.
I used hard tacos because I had them on hand, but prefer soft corn tortillas. Try finding a Hispanic store and buying them fresh made – YUM!
Thanks go to my friend Amanda who told me how easy this is to do!!
