As a favor to any of my readers who have “lose weight” on their resolution list this year, I give you this very delicious, very healthy fish tacos recipe.

Please excuse me for a minute though while I go back a few posts and salivate over my dueling chocolate pies.

Fish Tacos

You can certainly substitute your favorite toppings in this taco and use flour tortillas. I really love the crunch of the cabbage since the fish has so little texture. Also, corn tortillas are the original and work great with this choice of protein.
