Ellie Krieger’s Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream

I am supposed to be posting this recipe Thursday for Craving Ellie in my Belly day…but since this week’s Thursday is also Barefoot Blogger day, I figured I would spread it out over two days and two posts. Hope you don’t mind…

This meal is going to become a regular around here. It was so good….and so so easy! I know I say that about a lot of recipes that I try, but really, that’s what I’m about, good simple food. I don’t have time to spend on complicated stuff, as I’m sure a lot of you don’t either.

I didn’t have any corn, so I skipped it, but I’m sure that would be good. I was also going to add some shredded carrot to the shredded cabbage that I used…but I forgot. Next time. I went ahead and threw the cilantro into the chipotle cream. This chipotle cream is awesome. I loved it. I’m definitely going to start serving it alongside chips, salsa and guacamole from now on. It was perfect for dipping tortilla chips.

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound white flaky fish fillet, like tilapia or halibut
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle pepper, in adobo sauce
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded green cabbage or lettuce
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (thawed if frozen)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • Lime wedges


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lime juice, salt and pepper. Pour over the fish fillets and let marinate for 20 minutes. Put the yogurt into a strainer lined with a paper towel and place over a bowl to drain and thicken for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove the fish from the marinade and grill on a preheated grill or nonstick grill pan over a medium-high heat until cooked thorough, about 3 minutes per side. Set the fish aside on a plate for 5 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl combine the thickened yogurt, mayonnaise, and chipotle pepper.
  4. Heat the tortillas on the grill or grill pan for 30 seconds on each side.
  5. Flake the fish with a fork. Top each tortilla with 1 tablespoon of the chipotle cream. Top with fish, cabbage, corn and cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
