Fish Tacos with Lime Crema

Now that I am a mama of two, I am the Queen of easy fast meals. I love Trader Joe’s and on my weekly shopping trip I was inspired when I bought these “healthier” fish sticks for my 2 year old. I won’t lie though.. the thing that really makes these standout is the not-so-healthy lime crema.


Fish Tacos:

-Corn Tortillas

-Shredded Green Cabbage

-Pico de gallo or salsa of choice

-1 Lime

-Fish Sticks or Breaded Fish in freezer section

***This Trader Joe’s version is Reduced Fat and lightly breaded!! I love it just      as much as the fattier versions i’ve used.

Lime Crema:

1/4 cup Sour Cream (fat free was honestly just as good!)

3 tablespoons Mayonnaise

Zest from one Lime

Juice from one Lime

1/4 teaspoon Salt



-Make crema before hand so the flavors can marry. At least an hour before. Combine all crema ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate covered until ready to top tacos.

-Bake frozen fish according to directions on box. I usually cook a little longer to make sure the breading is nice and crispy.

-Heat corn tortillas on stove in dry pan until desired toast. This is usually pretty quick so be sure to watch carefully!

-Once tortillas are off the heat top quickly. Layer a small handful of cabbage, then top with fish, salsa, and top with crema. Serve with a lime wedge on the side.

My favorite side for this is a simple Jicama corn black bean salsa. I will post this soon as it makes a perfect healthy side this summer. It’s also a great dip if you serve it with chips.


The way I made it this was ONLY 7 Weight Watchers Points even with the side!!!
