Delicious Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa


This recipe is light and cooks up quickly! Estimated nutrition profile is about 500 calories for 1 fish taco, but you only need one… they are VERY filling! You will also get about 12g fiber and about 20g protein per serving.



Mango Salsa

  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 onion (red preferable, any onion OK)
  • juice of 1 lime, zest of 1/2 lime
  • mix ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate

Zesty, Creamy Topping

Skip the sour cream and use this instead!

  • 1/2 cup Greek, plain lowfat yogurt (it has a thicker consistency then regular yogurt or you can strain regular yogurt by placing a paper towel in a strainer and add the yogurt. Using Greek yogurt or regular, strained, helps give the yogurt a thicker consistency like soft cheese. It needs about 2-3 hours in the refrigerator and you can skip this step if you don’t have the time)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder, taco seasoning, or fajita seasoning
  • stir and refrigerate


  • about 2-3 pounds white fish
  • season with salt and pepper
  • squeeze juice from 1/2 lime over fish
  • broil or grill on low to medium heat for 6-8 minutes (don’t over do it or your fish will be tough)

Spicy Black Beans

  • one 14 oz. can of black beans, rinsed and drained, and placed in a saucepan
  • 1/2 onion, diced and 2-4 cloves garlic, diced (sauté both in 1 tsp olive oil and add to beans)
  • 1 tsp cumin and 1 tsp chili powder
  • mix together and heat on low for about 8 minutes, this while the fish is cooking

You will also need…

  • store bought tortillas (try using one of a low carb, high fiber tortillas with about 100 calories and 10g fiber per serving… you might be pleasantly surprised with how good they can be!)
  • 1 cup cabbage, shredded (green or purple – whatever looks good)

Making the Taco

Heat the tortilla in a toaster oven or dry pan for a few seconds until warm. Then place about 2-3 ounces of fish in the middle of the taco. Top with 2 tablespoons mango salsa, 2 tablespoons black beans, small handful of cabbage (cabbage is healthy and low calorie so use as much or as little to your liking), and 1 tablespoon of the creamy topping.
