Tender and Tasty Fish Tacos
Tender, flaky Alaskan Cod is not only packed with protein, but with 150 calories for a 7 ounce serving, it makes for an AWESOME low-carb meal.
While being a powerhouse for protein and calories, it's also pretty bland and has a mild flavor which makes it a perfect canvas for seasoning. After just a few minutes, the cod takes on the flavor of whatever it's mixed with, resulting in tasty, mouthwatering morsels you can use in many ways.
It's also SUPER easy to cook- you really don't have to be intimidated by this fish, and you also don't have to eat it ONLY as a filet, baked or broiled with lemon. With cod, we can get creative- because after all, we want flavor- we want excitement- we want... fish tacos!!
As if you weren't enticed enough by the protein, the calories, the flavor and the ease of cooking this little fish, I've got one more bonus for you- it cooks in 10 minutes. #truth!
It actually will take longer to assemble your favorite condiments for this tender and tasty dish than it will to cook it!
The flexibility of this dish makes it a PERFECT family meal as well. Put out a spread of taco toppings and let everyone customize their own.
For those on program, you can scoop the fish over greens, cauliflower "rice" or eat straight up topped with your favorite approved condiments. Oh! Be sure to try my Fresh Lime Crema for a flavor-loaded condiment with few calories.
Whatever way you decide to create your Tender and Tasty Fish Tacos, I promise you'll enjoy this Lean and Green, Low Carb Recipe.
Happy Cooking! Stacey
