Ingredients

  • 4 Cod Fillets (3.5oz)Lettuce Fish Taco
  • 1/2 cup tropical vinaigrette
  • 1 lime
  • 4 large pieces of butter lettuce
  • 4 Tablespoons guacamole
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 4 Tablespoons mango salsa 

Instructions

  • Marinate the cod fillets in dressing for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a pan with olive oil.
  • Place the marinated cod in the pan, cut the lime in half and its squeeze juice over the cod. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the cod is baking, separate leaves from the lettuce, careful to keep them intact. Assemble individual tacos by putting a tablespoon of guacamole on each lettuce leaf, topped with 1/4 cup of cabbage.
  • Once the cod is done, change the oven to broil for a few minutes. Watch the cod closely until its top is browned. Remove it from oven.
  • Top each prepared taco with a piece of fish, a spoonful of salsa, and a slice of the remaining lime half.
