Fish Tacos with Lime Cilantro Creme

Okay, I loved this! I have been in a cooking mood this weekend so I tried another new recipe. Our girls don't just love fish so I figured I need to start cooking fish more. My sweet friend Lya has told me on several occasions how yummy this recipe is. Lya lives in Plano, TX and I only see her a couple of times a year. I was bugging her for the recipe and I am thrilled to have it. I especially love the Lime Cilantro Creme and I don't love cilantro. I could keep the creme around to eat with veggies or on a wrap with the carnitas... it is very yummy.




Fish Tacos with Lime Cilantro Creme

Tilapia filets

Brush the filets with olive and generously season with Fiesta fajita seasoning(here in Nebraska, I could only find Kroger fajita seasoning-what is a girl to do!) Grill and separate into bite size pieces with two forks.

Lime Cilantro Creme

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
3 Tbsp sour cream
1 tsp grated lime peel
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 garlic cloved, minced

Mix creme and refrigerate til ready to enjoy. I would double or triple the creme depending on the size of your family. My husband, myself and one of our daughters almost finished off one recipe of creme... but like I said - I loved it!

We enjoyed our fish in white corn tortillas topped with cabbage slaw, lime cilantro creme and sliced avocados with sides of black beans and Texmati rice! YUM!
