Fish Tacos with Lime Cilantro Rice


Lime Cilantro Rice

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 Tbs chopped cilantro
  • juice from half a lime
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs butter

Fish Tacos

  • 1/4 pound of tilapia filets per person
  • 2 Tbs oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Condiments to serve at the table

  • shredded green cabbage
  • half an avocado sliced
  • green salsa
  • a bottle of Tapatio hot sauce
  • Ranch dressing


Lime Cilantro Rice

  • Cook in a rice cooker or bring the rice, broth and salt to boil in a saucepan. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, then cover and lower the heat to a bare simmer and cook for 15-10 minutes.

Fish Tacos

  • Put a little oil on the fish filets and rub it around, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  • Heat the oil in the skillet over medium heat and cook the fish until done.  Your time will vary depending on how thick the fish is. I was using the previously frozen filets from Costco which are pretty thin (two pieces) so they cooked in about 2 minutes per side. Thicker fish can take up to 5 minutes per side.
  • Put everything on the table and let everyone make up their own fish tacos. Yum!
