Tilapia Tacos

Tilapia is one of my favorite fish and that I include in my weekly meal planning.  The best part about this fabulous fish is the very mild, flaky taste which enables me to use it in a variety of recipes.  Tilapia is an excellent source of protein and contains minimal fat and cooks in minutes.  This wonderful dish can go from stove top to table in under 30 minutes and that is a WIN WIN in my Stay Healthy book.
