  • 1/4 cup + 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice divided
  • 1 tablespoon + 1/2 teaspoon lime zest divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1-2 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato seeded, diced
  • 1 medium cucumber seeded, diced

DIRECTIONS

Place tilapia in a 1-gallon recloseable food storage bag. In small bowl, combine oil, ¼ cup lime juice, cilantro, 1 tablespoon lime zest, adobe sauce and salt. Pour over fish; seal bag; marinate 30 minutes.

In small bowl, combine sour cream, chipotle peppers, garlic, remaining 1½ teaspoons lime juice and ½ teaspoon lime zest. Set aside.

Remove fish from marinade; discard marinade. Place fish on broiler pan that has been sprayed with no-stick cooking spray. Broil 4 inches from heat until fish flakes easily with a fork (about 10 minutes per inch of thickness).

Flake fish into chunks and divide evenly among tacos. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and cheese; drizzle with Chipotle-Lime Sauce.
