If the weather is still quite hot and you’re not really into using the oven for your meal prep, this homemade fish tacos recipe will be your new BFF! If you’re trying to eat more healthy (and cut the meat) fish tacos will be your favourites.
Fish is known for being a much healthier than the other foods because of its lower levels of saturated fats and cholesterol (read more about the differences between fish and red meat here). Chicken, fish, vegetables, and beans are healthy(er) sources for protein. So why not combine them under the crunchy shell of a taco?
This recipe also includes hummus and pita bread, both recipes can be found around here.
Here’s what you’ll need you your very own homemade fish taco recipe:
Servings: 4 | Prep. Time: 30 mins | Waiting Time: n/a | Cook Time: 15 mins | Difficulty: Easy
- 300 grams of your favourite fish fillet
- 4 pita breads
- a few scoops of hummus
- a large bell pepper
- a medium carrot
- spring onions to taste
- beans of your choice
- a lemon
1.Chop the veggies finely.
2. Cook the fish on medium heat for a few minutes each side, until it gets slightly golden. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Let the fish cool for a few minutes and shred it using two forks.
4. Spread some hummus over the pita breads.
5. Add the shredded fish, the chopped veggies and beans and enjoy!
6. Squeeze some lemon juice on top as you serve it.
I already showed you how you can make hummus and pita bread, so in case you want to recreate the exact same recipe here they are:
- squeeze some lemon over your taco filling; it will keep the veggies fresh for longer and it will cut the fatty fish taste;
- you probably noticed I haven’t sauteed the veggies; that’s because I like the tenderness of the cooked fish in combo with the crunchiness of the raw veggies. You can sautee them if you’d like, but I highly recommend you to have different textures;
- drizzle some sauces on top for more flavour. I added pesto and it enhances the flavours so much.
Super easy, delicious and healthy meal for the lazy ones, like me, who can’t stand cooking when the weather is too hot. Am I the only one?
