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:

  1. Improved delivery of oxygen and nutrients to cells because of reduced blood viscosity

  2. Enhanced aerobic metabolism

  3. Anti-inflammatory

  4. Promotes a healthy heart

  5. Improves functioning of the nervous system

  6. Helps balance hormones

  7. Reduces cholesterol

  8. New studies are showing evidence that Omega – 3 fatty acids may aid depression, ADD, and sleep

The Recipe

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

Corn tortillas


Sour cream


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!!
