Sorry this photo was taken by my cell phone quickly because I was so hungry I wanted to dig right in!
This is a great meal! You only need:
- Taco Shells**
- 1 tilapia fillet per taco
- Romaine lettuce
- Grilled veggies of choice (I used left over asparagus and zucchini)
- Tabouli Salad or (Salsa)
- Southwest Seasoning or Old Goat Lake George Spices
Simply start by seasoning your fish with the seasoning, while your grill heats up. It’s a thin fish so its best to grill it in a grill pan or George Foramen type grill. Follow the instructions for heating the taco shell (I put mine in the microwave).
The fish will only take a minute or two on each side. Then I break up the fish into the taco shell and layer in the lettuce, veggies and top with tabouli.
This has such a light summer taste. its great you have to try it!!

**The taco shells: you could use any thing here! Wraps, soft taco shells. whatever! I follow a 90-10 rule with my food 90% of the time I eat great 10% I eat to satisfy the fat kristen! lol. I have been using the El Paso stand n Stuff taco shells. They taste great and they don’t have too much crap like some other options I saw at the store. Plus it makes hubby happy!!
Speaking of 90-10 here are some Food reviews I would like to share with you:
Being and Upstate NY I love Buffalo Style anything! So I had to try these. They came in at 130 calories per link. The ingredients were great, nothing I couldn’t pronounce. They had good taste with a bit of a bite to them. I liked them they could satisfy a craving for Buffalo sandwich or wings. you can find more info on them here
Then I found these. They are only 70 calories per link. I don’t think they had as strong of flavor but I did like them. They also had less fat at 2.5g vs 6g for the one’s above. This too had good ingredients which can be found here.
I will purchase both again. I think the Thin n trim is a great for dinner or lunch – and to be added to a dish. If I really wanted a sausage and peppers sandwich I would use the al fresco.
I rec’d several questions about the make your own pizza night.
I used these pizza crusts/shells for our pizza night. Information can be found here. It has enriched flour and whole wheat flour – remember that 90-10 rule!!
You get 2 shells per package. but the serving size is jacked up. One service is 2oz. but one shell is 4.5oz. so you have to do a bit of math to figure out how much you are eating! Stupid they should do it per shell or per 1/2 shell not 44% of one.
Well off to bed! enjoy the food!
