Tilapia Fish Tacos with Mango and Avocado Salsa

I shared with everyone yesterday about my mission to get into better shape for the Summer. I made this super healthy recipe for dinner tonight, that was only 150 calories per taco! The tacos were easy, healthy, and delicious!


  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 pound of fresh tilapia
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 Tablespoon of fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup fo chopped mango
  • 1 large green onion
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1 Tablespoon of cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

First clean your tilapia.

Mix paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

Coat the fish with the seasoning and let set while you prepare the salsa.

For the salsa - mix the papaya, green onion, avocado, cilantro, and juice from lime. Mix well.

Heat olive oil in pan, and add fish to the pan. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side on high heat.

Add to warmed corn tortilla, top with salsa, and serve. Enjoy!
