Like most people, once the weather starts warming up, I find myself craving lighter and more refreshing recipes. Tacos are a favorite around here and I love how easy they are to customize with what we have on hand.
These Tilapia and Kale Slaw Tacos are healthy, delicious and make a fun and easy weeknight meal.
They start off with some grilled or broiled tilapia marinated in a light Asian inspired sauce with sesame oil, maple syrup, soy sauce and lime juice.
I love sneaking in kale whenever I can so I topped the tacos with a kale slaw that included radicchio, carrots, daikon and some chopped pineapple for some sweetness.
A fresh and flavorful way to spice up fish and quick enough to make for a busy weeknight!
