A cool sauce with just a bit of zing tops these breaded fish tacos (that are actually healthy!). This recipe is a delicious guilt-free dish that doesn't break the bank. —Lena Lim, Seattle, Washington

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon each white pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • Additional fresh cilantro leaves, optional

Directions

  1. Place the sour cream, chiles, cilantro and lime juice in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Set aside.
  2. Cut each tilapia fillet lengthwise into 2 portions. Place the flour, egg white and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Dip tilapia in flour, then egg white, then crumbs.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook tilapia in oil in batches until fish flakes easily with a fork, 4-5 minutes on each side. Combine the seasonings; sprinkle over fish.
  4. Place a portion of fish on each tortilla; top with about 2 tablespoons of sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with tomato. If desired, top with additional cilantro.
