Yesterday, I gave you some tips for finding a personal trainer.  One of those tips was too make sure your trainer is certified.

If you’re thinking about working with me, you’re in good hands! I’ve been certified through the American Council on Exercise aka ACE since 2007.

I absolutely love ACE! If you haven’t been by their website, go check it out. In addition to fitness tips you can also get healthy recipe ideas and that’s exactly what I did this week to find your Healthy Fish Tacos.

They looked awesome on the website and are even tastier in real life.  I made a few tweaks to the recipe, but it’s still super healthy.  I hope you’ll try it out!

Ingredients Needed to Serve Healthy Fish Tacos to Four:

3/4 c beer, preferably lager or pilsner
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c whole-wheat pastry flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 1/4 lbs tilapia, or other firm white fish, sliced into 1/2-inch-by-2-inch strips
2 tbsp canola oil, divided
1 tomato, chopped
fresh basil, to taste
1/2 c Greek yogurt
8 tortillas

How to Put it All Together:

Step One: Make your fish batter. Grab a blender and place all ingredients through the ground pepper inside it.  Blend up your ingredients until the batter is smooth.

Step Two: Coat your fish.  Pour your batter into a shallow baking dish and place the fish in the dish. Turn the fish to coat it all over with your yummy batter.

Step Three: Cook your fish. Heat your oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add in your battered fish, cooking for 3 to 4 mins on each side.

Step Four: Put it all together. Divide your fish amongst your tacos.  Add fresh veggies, if you have them.

Step Five: Pretend you’re on a beach in Baja as you savor your healthy fish tacos-YUM!

These tacos are so full of flavor, I bet you’ll forget they are healthy 😉

Do fish tacos remind you of warmer days? What food makes you think of the beach? Which beach is your favorite? I’d love to know! Leave me a comment to share your thoughts:
