clean eats pick of the week | fish tacos w/ lime cilantro slaw

boo-ya, week two ya'll!  i'm two for two & i didn't even think i could do it.

i'm continuing on in sharing my favorite clean recipes here on the blog because the more we delve into this whole foods & clean eating stuff, the more obsessed i'm finding myself become with it.  i can't get enough tasty fresh food!

this week's recipe is another from the menu.  every week i open up my menu planner email from them with the week's meals & read through them like it's christmas morning.  isn't that lame?  but it's kinda fun to see what new things will be on there & i've been having a blast learning how to cook a few new things.  for example, have you ever cooked with leeks before?  last week i made a baked potato & leek soup that was basically amazing.  will definitely be making that one again, fo sho.

anywho, this week i'm sharing this fish taco recipe & the thing that makes this bad boy blog worthy?  the lime cilantro slaw.  freaking delish.  here ya go.

- 2 tbsp sour cream
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- dash of salt
- 1/2 small head green cabbage, thinly sliced
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 lb tilapia fillets, thawed
- 1/4 tsp pepper

- whole wheat taco size tortillas
- avocado
- tomato
- black beans
- cotija cheese {<-- dudes, best cheese EVER}
- whatever else you like on your tacos

- combine sour cream, lime juice, cumin & salt in a large bowl.  add cabbage, green onions & cilantro, tossing well to coat.  refrigerate until ready to use.

- heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  sprinkle tilapia with a dash of salt & some pepper.  add tilapia to skillet & cook 2 minutes per side.  remove from heat & flake fish with a fork into large chunks.

- heat tortillas in skillet until warm & crisp. fill with fish, slaw mixture & all the other fixins.  also, try to work the word "slaw" into as much of your conversation as you can while making these... because doesn't it just sound so appetizing?

  7. Just made these tonight. YUMMMMM! I loved them! The slaw was my favorite part, so I piled it on top of my 2 corn tortillas and ate it like a tostada. The fish is gone now, but I think I could eat the slaw with beans for lunch tomorrow. And that cotija is delicious. Gonna be a new staple around here with our Mexican food.
