reduced-fat sour cream
salt and ground black pepper to taste
jalapeno pepper, halved lengthwise
2 1/2 cups
shredded red cabbage
green onions, thinly sliced
tilapia fillets, cut into strips
8 (6 inch)
chopped fresh cilantro
This was excellent!!
I made very minor changes: cooked the red cabbage in a pan for about 5 min, just to soften slightly. Used fat-free sour cream. Also, added cilantro to the slaw and as a garnish on top. I don't believe the recipe instructions included what to do with the cilantro.
This was the perfect dinner for a hot day!!
I make fish tacos all of the time with tilapia sprinkled with a Louisanna style rub! My husband loves a little kick so I am anxious to try this recipe! I would use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream though.
These were excellent! Healthy and different. They cooked much faster for me.
I made these even healthier since we had the gas grill going with some corn cobs and grilled the fish. Just put the slices on an oiled foil lined cookie sheet and drizzled some fresh lime and creole seasoning. They cooked up to a perfect flakiness at 425 degrees in only ten minutes. The sauce just needed more flavor, was very limey tasting, and I had some chipotle peppers in the fridge, so I chopped one and put it in the sauce that went on the slaw, boy was that ever good, but not too spicy. I made my slaw up early in the day and gave it time to marinate. I did use the plain sauce as a topping without the chipotle in it. These were so very good and really easy to make and. Served with some juicy Florida corn on the cob.
This was amazing! I was somewhat worried if I would like the flavors together, but everything came out great. The jalapeno really made it over the top yummy. I will make this again soon! Thanks for sharing!
These were very simple and quite delish! I really only made a couple of simple changes. Because my family likes sour cream, I doubled that. Additionally I fried the jalapeno and fish together, not discarding anything when it was done. It added a perfect flavor for us.
I made this with shrimp instead of fish because that's what everyone in my family likes... I used Blackened Seasoning on the shrimp when I sauteed it, the rest of the recipe was the same...loved it! My son who is home from college saw me making the sour cream/lime dressing and said the restaurant where he works (in Lubbock, TX) makes this to serve on enchiladas. It was great on the slaw and as a topping for the tacos. Will definitely try this with Tilapia too. Great recipe!
