Gluten-Free Fish Tacos with Avocado Lime Sauce

We made these for dinner the other night, and delicious does not even begin to describe them!
Just the fact that they were fried was good enough for me, since being gluten free forbids me from devouring fried crunchy goodness.
While it's great for the waistline, a little juicy fried crunch is good for the soul!
At least, I like to think so.
Plus, the sauce? Absolutely heavenly.  It has the most delicious blend of avocado and lime, with a slight tang of the sour cream.
We ate the left over sauce on everything and it was just as yummy!
Let's get started...

Serves 2 people

For Fish-

  • 1 fillet tilapia
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs (may need more depending on how think you want the breading)
  • 3 cups Gluten free bread crumbs (may need more, see above)
  • Oregano
  • Paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
 For Sauce-
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 "whopping" tbs sour cream
  • 1 tsp plain yogurt (we used Greek)
  • 1 jalapeno
  • A few pinches cilantro, roughly a tablespoon
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
2-4 Corn tortillas

  1. In a bowl, mix gluten free bread crumbs, oregano, paprika and salt and pepper until the breading has the flavor you like
  2.  In a separate bowl, beat the 2 eggs
  3. Cut fish into small strips (about 2-3 inches long, 1/2 inch wide)
  4. Place fish strips in breading bowl first. It will help the egg cling to it.  Make sure the strip is coated.
  5. Transfer fish from breading bowl into egg bowl, coating completely.  Return to breading bowl and coat completely. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until the coating is your desired thickness.  We did 2 or 3. Repeat for all fish strips.
  6. Deep fry fish strips in saucepan filled with about 2-3 inches of vegetable oil
  7. Set on paper towel to cool
  1.  Mix all ingredients in a small food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. If you do not have a food processor- mash avocados, chop cilantro and jalapeno, mix thoroughly until the sauce has a smooth consistency.
 Place fish strips in the corn tortilla, top with sauce and salsa (optional) and enjoy!
