Fish Tacos with Skinny Chipotle Sauce – Low-Calorie, Gluten-Free

Fish tacos with skinny chipotle sauce are the perfect quick, light meal. Low in fat and calories and very flavorful.

 

I’m a huge fan of seafood, especially fish tacos. They are one of my favorite go to meals when it comes to Taco Tuesday! These fish tacos with skinny chipotle sauce are a must try. They are really easy to make too. Most of the time will be spent prepping, but it won’t take too long to assemble these tacos.

 

What is tilapia fish?

Tilapia is a freshwater, plant-eating, white fish that is mild in flavor. Currently, it is in the top 5 most consumed fish in the United States. Tilapia is an inexpensive and easy to prepare and cook.

What are the benefits of eating tilapia fish?

Tilapia is low in fat and a good source of protein. It has 26 grams of protein and only 128 calories in about 3.5 oz. Tilapia is rich in niacin, vitamin B12, phosphorus, selenium and potassium.

 

The chipotle sauce is my favorite topping for these tacos. It’s delicious and really dresses up the tacos with so much flavor. It’s also made using healthier ingredients. I use Greek yogurt as the base, and add in some chipotles, lime and cilantro. It comes to together quickly in the food processor.

Tilapia, like most fish, doesn’t take long to cook. Once the fish is seasoned, I drizzle a little olive oil in a pan, preheat it, and cook the fish until it’s cooked through. It takes about 8 minutes, 4 minutes on each side. Once the fish is cooked, assembling the taco is quick. I like to use a taco stand when assembling, so the tortillas stay in a taco shape, but laying the tortilla flat on a plate works too.

I put the fish into the corn tortillas first, then add all my toppings. Finishing it off with a drizzle of the chipotle sauce.
