Fish Tacos with Creamy Avocado Pesto

My love affair with fish tacos has me constantly seeking creative new recipes to add to the mix. To avoid the dreaded relationship rut, you gotta change things up every now and then!

I decided to try out a new sauce for tonight’s batch of f ish tacos. And thus, creamy avocado pesto was born.


    • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
    • 1/2 cup fresh basil
    • 1/2 an avocado
    • 3 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 tsp minced garlic

Blend everything together in a blender or food processor.

This would also work great on sandwiches or as a dipping sauce.

For the fish, I sauteed 4 tilapia fillets in 2 Tbsp olive oil and seasoned them with cayenne pepper, cumin, chili powder, and black pepper.

Fish taco accompaniments

    • roasted red bell peppers
    • white onion
    • cilantro
    • pico de gallo
    • romaine lettuce



Dinner shut everyone up for a good 10 minutes. And that, my friends, is when you know you did good.
