Looking for a new twist on Taco Tuesday? Here’s a light alternative to your traditional fried fish tacos—tender and flaky baked cod, bright mango salsa with a fresh lime crema all wrapped up in cool crunchy lettuce wraps. If you want a slightly more satisfying meal, grab a pack of corn tortillas instead. Sure to please any crowd!
2 pounds cod filet, cut into chunks
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoons onion powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 ripe mangos, chopped
½ red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, seeded and chopped
½ – 1 jalapeno for desired spice, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 lime, juiced
½ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp lime juice
1 head butter lettuce (or 6 small corn tortillas, warmed)
Preheat oven to 350°F (TK °C). While it preheats, mix together all your spices for the spice mix in a small bowl.
Place cod on a lined baking sheet. Pat fish dry with a paper towel and then season cod all over with the spice mix. Set aside to marinate while preparing other ingredients.
Next, combine mango salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix. Set salsa aside.
In a small bowl, mix the Greek yogurt and lime juice and stir well to combine. Set lime crema aside. Wash and separate butter leaves, then pat dry. Use as many as desired.
Place cod into the oven for 10 to 12 minutes and bake until fish is fully cooked. Flake fish into small pieces and then fill each lettuce wrap with a small amount of fish. Top with mango salsa and a light drizzle of the lime crema. Makes 4-6 servings.
