Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

Fish tacos have become popular in many sit down restaurants. It is a great way to get in one of your two servings of fish needed in the week.  Fish provides essential omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.   Unfortunately though in many cases they are made with excess fat and sodium.  Even  when purchasing grilled fish tacos you still have the risk of dealing with the extra fat from added butter and oils and excess sodium.  You can easily make your own fish tacos at home and customize it to your liking. 
I decided to make my fish tacos with a mango salsa to give it a slightly  sweet flavor. Instead of adding sauces or sour cream that are loaded in fat, salsa is a great alternative to providing extra flavor without excess calories.  Plus it is easy to make and deliciously nutritious. 

Ingredients for Fish
4 fish fillets of choice (salmon, flounder, tilapia) (I used flounder)
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
Olive oil
8 corn tortillas

In a small bowl mix your spices.

Place fish in baking dish and drizzle olive oil on the fish.  Sprinkle seasoning over the fish.  Bake on 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until fish is flaky.

You may have leftover spices.  You can store them in a storage bag to use with a future recipe.

While the fish is cooking prepare your mango salsa.

1 1/2 cup diced tomato
3/4 cup diced mango
3/4 cup diced avocado
1 cup diced cilantro
Zest of one lime
3 tbsp of lime juice

Mix ingredients together in a small bowl.

Once the fish is ready cut the fish into thin strips.  Warm tortilias in a pan and assemble your yummy tacos.
