Ingredients

  • 1 lb 16 oz Alaska Cod
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (or cajun seasoning for more heat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

CREAMY AVOCADO DRESSING:

  • 1 cup cilantro or 1 large bunch
  • 1/8 cup lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 1 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt or a nondairy all-natural mayo can be used
  • 1/2 large avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sweetener of choice or 1-2 packets stevia or 1/2 tbs honey

OPTIONAL:

  • low carb tortillas, taco shells, shredded cabbage, cheese, diced tomatoes for topping

Instructions

  1. Place cod in a shallow dish and drizzle over the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, paprika, salt & pepper over the fillet. Using your hands, gently rub everything into the fish on all sides then leave to marinate for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce by blending all of the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate until ready to serve. 
  3. To prepare the fish there are four different methods of cooking you could use:BROILER: Set oven to high broil. Position fish on baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Broil fish for about 5 minutes, or until fish flakes when pierced with a fork.BAKE: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place fish in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until fish flakes when pierced with a fork.PAN: Preheat a large non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add fish. Lay in a flat layer and don’t overcrowd the pan or the fish will steam, not sear. Don’t move fish for 3 minutes once you’ve placed them in the hot pan — this helps get a well-browned crust. Flip them after 3 minutes and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until just cooked through. Remove from heat.GRILL: Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Grill the fish for about 3-4 minutes before turning and cooking on the other side, or until fish is completely white and cooked through.
  4. Once fish is done the cooking, carefully break up the fish using a fork, into bite-sized pieces. If using tortillas, pop the tortillas in the microwave for 20-30 seconds (or on the grill for 20-30 seconds or just until they get a few char lines on each side). If using taco shells, pop them in the oven according to package instructions.
  5. Divide fish among tortillas or taco shells, top with sauce, and toppings of choice. Enjoy!
