  • 6 Corn tortillas
  • 2 Tortilla crusted tilapia fillets
  • 1 cups tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 bunch green onions chopped
  • 5 oz. container nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 avocado diced
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin


  • To get started, pop your fish fillets in your Airfryer and bake them at 390° for 15-18 minutes, until they are nice and crispy. If you don't own an Airfryer you can bake the fish fillets according to the package directions (I bumped up my temperature to 400° for a crunchier outside).
  • Meanwhile, to prepare the avocado cream, combine the Greek yogurt and avocado so it is smooth. To that, add the lime juice, chili powder and garlic powder. Mix well and set aside.
  • Throw your tortillas in a heated saute pan with a little bit of pan spray and cook on high on each side for 30-60 seconds. This helps to get some browned color on them and improves the texture of the tortilla by giving it a chewy bite.
  • Remove your fish from the oven when it is done and slice into 1/4" strips.
  • To assemble your tacos, start by spreading a generous amount of avocado cream on each tortilla, topping with 1/3 of a fish fillet and diced tomatoes and green onions. Serve immediately.
