Fish Taco Quick!


2 pieces of cod  (tilapia, haddock or other mild fish)

Garlic minced  ( I used Happy Diabetic Garlic Happiness)

2 T Olive oil
Shredded cabbage or fresh Cole slaw mix

Fresh Mango peeled and sliced

1 fresh lime squeezed or True Lime crystals

 Whole Wheat Low Carb tortillas (small fajita size)


In a non stick skillet place garlic and olive oil and heat to medium heat.

Place fish fillets into pan and cook  about 4 minutes a side depending on the thickness of the fish pieces.   When almost done I break up the fillets in the skillet and sprinkle with juice of the lime.  Today I didn’t have a fresh lime so I used True Lime. (great to have on hand)

I peeled and sliced a sweet juicy fresh mango such a brilliant yellow color.

The addition of shredded cabbage (use purple or green or both for color) is traditional addition to fish tacos.  I love the crunch!

Use your imagination!    Add pico de gallo, black beans, green sauce, scallions as examples.

These fish tacos were delicious and so Easy Peasy!!

I usually don't post other than recipes on this blog; this will be the exception.   I was honored today to meet in person Chef Robert Lewis, the Happy Diabetic Chef at a TCOYD Conference in Tucson today.
Chef Robert is truly an inspiration.    I recommend you going to his website:

If you have the opportunity to attend a TCOYD Conference in your area do!   Sometimes we just need a little boost to carry on, this was just what I needed!

Thank you Chef Robert!  Keep on doing what you do...spreading the love!

Oh yes, garlic chicken for dinner tomorrow!!
