Avocado Fish Tacos

I am super excited about this recipe – it’s sooooo amazing! It’s so good that you’ll want to make this one often and even without a taco shell altogether. There is just enough avocado to make it taste great without adding too many calories, and the tasty taco sauce… well let’s just say you will be putting it on your chicken and burgers, dipping fries in it – the list goes on! Trust me, it’s that good.

Remember the half bag of cabbage left over from the Unstuffed Cabbage? Well guess what…you can use that up in this recipe! What I like to do is come up with dishes that make use of the items that are already in your fridge.  Don’t worry, we will put that tarter sauce and salsa to good use in no time!

Step 1: Turn on your range to med/high heat. Spray the pan with a little olive oil spray.

Step 3: Cut your avocado in half. Place half in a bowl and cut into chunks.

Step 4: Mix 2T of tarter sauce and 2T of chunky salsa together.

Step 5: When the fish patties are done, remove from the pan. Empty the 1/2 bag of cabbage into the pan and cover, allowing the cabbage to soften.

Step 7: Once the cabbage is nice and soft, place it in the bowl with the rest of your ingredients.

Step 8: Pour the tasty taco sauce over the contents of the bowl and give it a good stir.
