Fish Tacos

Lincoln declared these the best tacos ever! High praise coming from a 5 year old!

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 tablespoons lime juice
1 lb tilapia fillets

2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 tablespoons lime juice
tabasco sauce to taste

shredded lettuce or cabbage
shredded cheese
chopped tomatoes

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and saute for about 1 minute. Add the lime juice and heat through. Poach the tilapia fillets in the lime/garlic mixture, turning once, until cooked through. In a serving dish, break the tilapia into bite size pieces and pour remaining liquid over it.

In a small dish, combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, lime juice, and tabasco. Mix well. (I used Kraft Chipotle Mayo instead of the tabasco, but you could get the same result using Chipotle Tabasco.)

To serve, place fish in a tortilla with a little of the mayonnaise sauce. Garnish as desired with cilantro, cheese, tomatoes and cabbage. (Cabbage is more authentic, but my kids won't eat it so we use shredded lettuce.)
