Tilapia Tacos and some food reviews


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!!

It comes in at about 205 calories, 16g carbs, 7g Fat and 23g Protein

**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!! Smile

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!

Haha, trying to figure out the nutrition facts for 3/4 of a pizza shell was'd think an accountant and a scientist wouldn't have a problem!
