Flavorful low FODMAP fish tacos

I received a boat load of delicious fish from Sizzlefish.  {Thanks Sizzlefish!}  So… what did I do? I made some super delicious if I say so myself fish tacos.

Fish tacosI simply seasoned some sable fish filets with McCormick’s chipotle chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper.  You can sub in your favorite fish. FODMAPers note: Many chili powders have onion as part of the chili powder blend. Choose a chili powder without onion.  Chipotle chili powder by McCormick is free of onion and has a smoky flavor.Seasoning up the fishWhile the fish was searing in the skillet, I made a little dish of lime aioli.  First, I zested a lime.  Then added the zest to a spoonful of mayonnaise and fresh lime juice.  Lime aioli might sound fancy…but really it’s simple to make.limeI chopped up some avocado (FODMAPers limit to 1/8 avocado per meal), tomatoes and lettuce….to nutrition up my tacos.  Fish taco ingredientsI simply heated up a store bought fresh corn tortilla, layered some lettuce, tomatoes, seared & seasoned fish, a couple slices of avocado and a little drizzle of my creamy and tangy lime aioli.  Oh…and I topped the taco with just a little grated cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese too!
