Directions

1Place the first 4 ingredients in a bowl; toss with 2 teaspoons oil, lime juice, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Refrigerate until serving.

2Pat fillets dry with paper towels; sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook tilapia until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 3-4 minutes per side. Top with slaw and avocado.

3If using tortillas, wrap in damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds.

If you’re following a low-carb diet, omit the tortillas! If not, wrap in tortillas before serving or pair it up with a whole grain side like brown rice pilaf or corn and pepper sauté.
