Serves: 6 tacos


  • 6 Corn tortillas
  • 2 Tortilla crusted tilapia fillets
  • 1 cups tomatoes chopped
  • ½ bunch green onions chopped
  • 5 oz. container nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ avocado diced
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin


  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove your fish from the oven when it is done and slice into ¼” strips.
  5. To assemble your tacos, start by spreading a generous amount of avocado cream on each tortilla, topping with ⅓ of a fish fillet and diced tomatoes and green onions. Serve immediately.
