Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream

Yield: 4



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound flaky white fish, such as tilapia, mahi-mahi, or halibut


  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon organic mayo
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped canned chipotle chili in adobo sauce


  • Eight 6 inch corn tortillas
  • 1 ½ cups shredded purple cabbage
  • ½ cup cooked corn kernels
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • Lime wedges


  1. To make the fish, in a small bowl whisk together the oil, lime juice, salt and pepper and pour over the fish and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl combine the plain Greek yogurt, mayo, and the chipotle peppers.
  3. Preheat a non-stick skillet on medium high heat. Remove the fish from the marinade and place the marinated fish on the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. Once the fish is cooked, cover and set aside.
  4. Heat the tortillas on the burner of a gas stove to the desired level of doneness. Otherwise, microwave the tortillas for about 30 seconds.
  5. Flake the fish with a fork. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon of the chipotle cream. Top with the fish, cabbage, corn and cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
