Fish Tacos


– 1 lb fresh fish (pick a favorite – snapper, tilapia, or monk), cut into strips
– 1 tsp light olive oil to coat baking dish
– ¼ tsp salt
– 1 tsp chili powder
– 1 tsp cumin powder
– 1 garlic clove, minced
– ¼ c fresh cilantro, chopped
– 2 green onions, minced
– 2 c cabbage, shredded
– 1 c tomato, chopped up
– Salsa (optional)  (Freshly made with no added sugar or vinegar)
– Tortillas (must be yeast free and sugar free)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat nonstick baking dish with olive oil. Mix salt, chili powder and cumin powder.  Sprinkle over fish evenly.  Bake fish at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes.  Fish can come out when it flakes easily with a fork.  Break into bite-sized pieces.  While fish is baking, mix garlic, cilantro, green onion, and cabbage together.  To serve, place fish into tortilla.  Top with cabbage mixture and salsa, if desired.

Here is a link to some yeast and gluten free flour tortillas: There are other brands as well, just be sure to check the label to make sure they are not made with yeast and that there is no added sugar.

I hope you enjoy!
