For the Fish Tacos

  • 1 lb. tilapia filets*
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 C thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 3/4 C Bolthouse Farms Cucumber Ranch
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha
  • 12 low carb snack size tortillas**

For the Mango Salsa

  • 1 mango, finely diced
  • 1 avocado, finely diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 cucumber, deseeded and finely diced***
  • 1/4 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 C chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, cumin, salt, coconut sugar, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, onion powder, and cinnamon until well combined. Pour into a gallon size ziploc bag and toss the tilapia in the marinade. Marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, up to 2 days, before cooking.
  2. Place the tilapia filets in the air fryer basket in an even layer and baste the fish with any leftover marinade. Be sure not to overcrowd the basket or let the fish overlap.
  3. Fry in batches at 400°F for 9-11 minutes until the fish is cooked through. Shred with two forks, cover with foil, and set aside.
  4. While the fish cooks, make the mango salsa by tossing together all salsa ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside until ready to serve.
  5. Make the sriracha ranch by mixing the Bolthouse Farms ranch with the sriracha sauce.
  6. To serve, add 2 tablespoons cabbage, 1 heaping tablespoon fish, 1/4 cup mango salsa, and 1 tablespoon ranch to one tortilla.
