Skinny Tilapia Tacos Recipe: This Low-Carb Fish Taco Recipe Swims With Flavor

Fish tacos, especially when the fish is baked, are a healthier option for taco night. This tilapia taco recipe is served in romaine lettuce leaves instead of tortillas, but does not lack in flavor.

Light and tasty, this easy fish taco recipe makes two servings, but can easily be doubled. Serve with salsa or pico de gallo for a healthy dinner or lunch

Cuisine: American / Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Servings: 2 


  • 20 ounces tilapia fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 large romaine lettuce leaves


  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons salad dressing (your choice)
  • 3 ounces avocado or 4 tablespoons sour cream

Here's how to make it:
