FASTEST Fish Tacos

This recipe has become our go-to "Oh crud I forgot to set something out to thaw and it's 4:00" and "OMG. I can't believe it's so late; we need dinner NOW" meal.  We buy individually frozen flounder fillets at Sam's and always have them on hand. They thaw in no time in a sink full of water and the meal is literally cooked in 6 minutes. SIX MINUTES! Add that it's extremely low fat, healthy and even Evie eats it and we have a big winner.  This recipe has 4 Weight Watchers Points plus per serving.  Recipe makes 4 servings.


4 Flounder Fillets, thawed
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Chili Powder
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Chipotle Powder (Optional if you like it spicy)
Juice of 1 lime
4 fat free soft taco sized flour tortillas
4 TBS Fat Free Shredded Cheddar cheese
4 TBS Fat Free Sour Cream
1 Tomato, Diced
1 Green Onion, Chopped
4 Tbs Fresh Cilantro, Chopped

Preheat Broiler to 500 Degrees. Place fish fillets on broiling pan and sprinkle with 1/2 the spices. Wrap Tortillas in aluminum foil. Broil Fish for 3 minutes on top rack directly below broiler.  Put Tortillas on lower rack to warm.  After 3 minutes remove fish, turn over and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 of the spices. Return to broiler for 3 more minutes. Remove fish and squeeze lime juice on top.

Assemble tacos with 1 fish fillet, 1 TBS Cheese, 1 TBS Sour Cream, Tomatoes, Green onions and 1 Tbs Cilantro each.
