Yet another recipe, that was adapted from the Weight Watcher’s Comfort Classics cookbook. One of these tacos is 297 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 5 grams of fiber all for a whopping 6 points! I LOVE fish tacos, and I am so used to having the fish fried. This was a change. I’ve tried Tyler Florence’s Ultimate Fish tacos before and they were the ultimate. I can’t believe how quickly fish cook under the broiler. These only took 4 minutes. When it boils down to fish tacos I think the best are when the fish is deep fried. Not very healthy in the end, but it isn’t everyday that I eat a fish taco.
There is a restaurant by us called Doolittle’s that is only about 5 minutes away. That was the first place I tried a fish taco and I couldn’t believe how good they were! I think the best part of the fish taco is the chipotle en adobo sauce. I would love to go to Mexico one day and try a fish taco there. That would be great.
Well, off to bed, thank god tomorrow is Friday! The windchill was -34 today, brrrr that is super cold. Can’t wait to get rid of my mom’s dogs tomorrow. One of them is a pain in the butt at night.
