Ingredients: (Makes 5-6 tacos)

1 6 oz container Plain Greek Yogurt (about ¾ cup)

1 teaspoon Honey

1 tablespoon Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped

1 teaspoon Fresh Lime Juice (about ½ a lime)

2-3 Cups Pre-Shredded Cole Slaw Mix

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 teaspoon Chili Powder

1 teaspoon Cumin

1 teaspoon Salt

½ teaspoon Oregano

½ teaspoon Garlic Powder

¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

¼ teaspoon Black Pepper

1-2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 lb. Tilapia Filets

1 package 6” or 8” Flour Tortillas

Fresh Pico De Gallo, for topping (recipe follows)

Lime Slices and Cilantro for garnish


To make slaw, whisk together Greek yogurt, honey, cilantro, lime and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Gently toss in 2-3 cups of the coleslaw mix, adding a little at a time until cabbage has completely been coated in the sauce. Set aside.

Next, set oven broiler to high. Wrap 6-8 tortillas in aluminum foil and place on lower rack in the oven to get warm.

In a small bowl, add the chili powder, cumin, salt, oregano, onion powder, cayenne pepper and black pepper and stir to combine. Place fish filets on a foil lined baking sheet and brush both sides of the fish with the extra virgin olive oil. Then rub both sides of the fish with spice mixture. Broil fish on high for 17-20 minutes, until firm. Remove the fish from the oven, squeeze the juice from half of a lime over the fillets and cut them into 3-4 inch chunks.

Lastly, remove the tortillas from the oven. To build the tacos, place 3-4 pieces of fish on a tortilla. Top with cilantro-lime slaw and some fresh pico de gallo. Serve with a slice of lime and a sprig of cilantro for garnish.
