Shake up the boring taco tuesday routine with Baja Fish Tacos
My Baja Fish Taco recipe marinates the fish with savory spices and lime juice. If you purchase pre-shredded cabbage and cheese, assembly is super fast. Each taco is only 189 calories! You’ll enjoy making this simple recipe and feel good about eating healthy too.
I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to visit Cabo San Lucas, a city on the southern tip of Baja California in Mexico, while cruising down the Mexican coast. Sitting down at a table on the sandy beach, I ordered a plate of fish tacos. As I was relaxing under the umbrella, waiting for my food, some obnoxious announcer with a microphone from the bar next door ordered us all to move our tables off the beach immediately!
He wanted a ‘runway’ for his contestants to race from the restaurant into the surf and see who could exchange their swimwear the fastest (hiding their naked parts in the water). Some of my friends were pretty upset and resisted moving; after all, we were there first! Well, they ended up getting into a yelling match with the announcer and before our food was ready our friends stormed away from the restaurant and we followed to be supportive. (A tidbit of wisdom: never get into an argument with someone holding a live microphone.) Such a bummer! I was sooooo looking forward to my fish tacos. I honestly wouldn’t have minded moving off the beach, but I can understand why the others in my group were ticked off.
Long after returning home, I came across a recipe for fish taco’s that sounded delicious and was low in calories. Baja Fish Tacos is my adaptation to a recipe originally made at the Biggest Loser ranch. The crazy story of what happened that afternoon long ago in Cabo gave rise to the name for this recipe. At the ranch they use whole grain tortillas but I prefer the traditional flour tortillas, which admittedly is the less healthy option. However, these tacos are delicious and still on the healthy side with 185 calories per taco. Please rate and review below, and tell me about your visit to Cabo if you’ve been there too :0)
