Why can’t every night be taco night? Tacos make a great meal for a crowd whether it’s family or friends, adults or kids. You can cook up your fish and prep the tangy slaw and then lay out all warm tortillas and a variety of toppings for a do-it-yourself taco bar everyone will love! My current obsession is fish tacos because 1) they remind me of being in California or Mexico and 2) they’re a healthy protein option that pairs perfectly with lime and crisp veggies. So refreshing yet total comfort food at the same time. I hope you love my Best Ever Healthy Fish Tacos with Tangy Slaw as much as I do!
Tips to Make Healthier Tacos
Check out how I make healthy tacos and turn a meal that could easily be high calorie and low in nutrients to one that’s on the lighter side and loaded with fiber, protein, heart-healthy fats and phytochemicals. And you know I never compromise on flavor!
The Best Healthy Taco Toppings
You can pretty much put anything on a taco you want to and that’s the beauty of them. Here are just a few of my favorite toppings:
- Red onion
- Avocado or guacamole
- Pico de gallo
- Plain Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream)
- Fresh lime juice (this really is the best way to brighten up those flavors before eating your taco)
- Crumbled light feta cheese
- Jalapenos (fresh or pickled)
What’s your go-to for toppings? Anything key I’m missing?
Now to the ultimate fish tacos…
When you’re choosing which fish to get, you can go for higher omega-3s by choosing oily fish such as salmon, trout or tuna.
If you’d rather have white fish tacos, Alaskan pollock, rockfish, sole and halibut work perfectly in this recipe.
