First, why are these so healthy? Well, for one, they are grilled, rather than the typical fried variety, and the fats in the fish are great for our health and help reduce inflammation. Second, rather than being topped with loads of cheese and sour cream, they are topped with an amazing crunchy and zesty slaw that is full of flavour and loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Last, the yogurt drizzle gives us the benefits of probiotics. This recipe uses good-quality fats, like extra virgin olive oil, that support heart health. These are definitely tacos you don’t have to feel guilty about, but rather should use to celebrate!
