6-ounce tilapia fillet (or other firm white fish)

1 – 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 – 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
½ jalapeño, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 corn (or small flour) tortillas

1 cup shredded lettuce (or shredded cabbage)
¼ cup chopped green onion
¼ cup cilantro leaves
½ cup diced tomatoes
½ avocado, sliced or diced
2 tablespoons salsa (optional)
Dollop plain low fat yogurt or sour cream (optional)

Place fish in glass dish and add oil, lime juice, jalapeño pepper and garlic; sprinkle with salt and pepper and marinate for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile prepare garnishes.
