Quick and Healthy Tilapia Fish Tacos

My husband loves fish tacos, and I have been trying to add more fish to my diet, so I decided to try out my own tilapia taco recipe...and it was a hit with my family!  I "cleaned up" the slaw and I was actually a little surprised, everyone liked it a lot!  This recipe is completely healthy and a great source of all kinds of healthy foods - lean protein, nutrient rich kale and veggies, and healthy fat from the avocado!  It's a winner!

Directions

Fish:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Rinse the Tilapia and pat dry.  Lightly brush with olive oil and liberally sprinkle the spices over fish (Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Smoked Paprika, Oregano) - repeat on the other side. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes, turn over and continue baking another 8 minutes, or until fish is no longer translucent and flakes easily with a fork.

Slaw: While fish is baking, in a large bowl mix Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, paprika, salt, pepper and juice form 1/2 of the lime.  Stir in kale slaw mix.

Tacos: Slice Avocados and sprinkle with juice from remaining half of lime.  Layer whole wheat or corn tortillas with fish, sliced avocado and top with slaw.
