If you're dieting down for a competition, you're probably eating a lot of tilapia. After 12 weeks of the same thing, a lot of competitors swear off tilapia indefinitely. That was totally me! I ate tilapia almost every day for three solid months. Now that I'm prepping for a show again, I've had to bring it back into my diet.

This time, I decided to add more flavorful ingredients to my tilapia, so I created these recipes. They're clean, creative, and they taste great. They might seem too yummy to be part of a clean diet, but they'll help you take face your contest prep challenges head-on!

Tilapia Tacos

My favorite dish to order at Mexican restaurants is fish tacos. I love the combination of flaky white fish, crunchy red cabbage, creamy avocado, and bright flavors from the lime and cilantro. But let's face it: when you have serious fitness goals, you probably aren't frequenting Mexican restaurants. The chips and salsa alone do me in! I was determined to come up with my own healthy version of fish tacos. This recipe is sure to make you forget you're dieting!

  1. Set oven to 375 degrees, wrap tortillas in foil and warm in oven while cooking tilapia.
  2. Heat coconut oil in medium pan over medium heat.
  3. Season tilapia filets evenly with all spices.
  4. Place filets in pan and cook 3-4 minutes each side, or until cooked thoroughly.
  5. Once tilapia is fully cooked, assemble tacos. Place one tilapia filet in each corn tortilla with 1/4 sliced avocado, red cabbage, and garnish with cilantro and lime.

Add 1 tbsp fat-free plain Greek yogurt for a great sour cream alternative!
