Baja Fishy Tacos

Good evening all you Happily Ever Healthy readers!
 I hope you all had a great Monday!  Mine was a little on the lazy side, but I also feel like I got a few things accomplished!  Mark and I woke up and went for a run, then sat around waiting to here about my interview that has now been pushed back to Thursday.  I cancelled and rebooked all train tickets and I am set to be back in Minnesota Thursday night!
While Mark and I were waiting to hear more information about the mentioned interview, we decided on dinner!  Mark's neighbors came over last night and had mentioned having fish tacos!  Then I read this post from How Sweet It Is!  The fish taco craving was sticking with me!  We took a brisk walk down to the grocery store to pick up some ingredients for the Fish Tacos's!
Grocery List:
Fish
Cabbage
Tortillas 
we also came out with a bottle of Kung Fu Girl wine!  We just happened to stumble across one of our favorites while just glancing over the wine selection!  It was the last bottle!  We found two more wines from the same Vineyard!  They have some great labels!

After a nice walk back to Mark's a short nap and catching up on some blog readings, it was time to start dinner!  While I do not have step by step pictures of everything being made it is pretty simple!  Mark and I looked up recipes earlier this morning and found a few to gather inspiration from.  Once again I found inspiration on Eating Well.  Eating Well featured a Grilled Fish Taco!  YUM!  A lot of the Baja fish taco recipes we found featured a cabbage slaw.  We decided to make our own!

Cabbage Slaw
1/2 Head of Purple Cabbage
1/4 Cup Low Fat Sour Cream 
1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
Various Spices:
Cumin
Cayenne Pepper
Chili Powder
Garlic Salt
1 Teaspoon Sugar
Hot Sauce to taste

All you have to do is chop your cabbage, and combine the chopped cabbage with the sour cream/greek yogurt and spices!

For the Fish:
Grill 
1 Pound White Fish of Choice-We used Tilapia (Mahi Mahi and other mild fish would work great too)!
Spices:
Pepper
Salt
Lemon 

Grill the fish until done (flakey)-you know me I am not a grill expert!  Marks dad was our grill expert this evening, and the fish turned out amazing!  Lots of wonderful flavors!

Now time to assemble your taco's!  Tonight Mark his dad and I all agreed one of the best things about Tacos is this, each taco shell you load up turns out a bit different!  Fabulous!
Tonights fish tacos were served with fresh salsa, the cabbage slaw, and cheese and more hot sauce!

My first taco was loaded more with the cabbage slaw, 

While my second taco featured more of the tilapia!

Yum and Yum!  Not the best pictures but these tacos were fabulous, healthy and light!
For dessert, a grilled S'more like sandwich!  
Following dessert we watched some of the Cincinnati Reds Game, 

while enjoying a friendly game of Monopoly!

Don't ask Mark who won!
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening, and as always remember to live Happily Ever Healthy!

Random and off topic thought!  I have been thinking a lot about the organization of the blog, and by that I mean assigning certain days to talk about certain things!  Are there any types of posts you would like to see more off?  I enjoy doing the what I am loving post, and I might make Monday be where I share the rest of the Be Quotes!  I would like some input so let me know!
