6 5-ounce tilapia filets or other firm white fish*
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 limes, divided
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 large red bell pepper, cut in ¼-in strips

1 jalapeno pepper, cut in thin strips
1 small onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
6 8-inch whole wheat tortillas
6 tablespoons coarsely-chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

Directions

Place tilapia in a medium bowl. Toss with cumin, salt and juice of 1 lime. Set aside while preparing other ingredients. Heat olive oil to medium-high in a large nonstick skillet. Add red and yellow peppers, jalapeno, onion, and garlic. Cook and stir for about 1 minute, until peppers and onion are slightly softened. Add tilapia and cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until white and opaque. Fish will flake easily and may break apart Warm tortillas according to package instructions. Divide tilapia-peppers mixture and cilantro evenly over tortillas. Roll to shape the taco. To serve, garnish each taco with a wedge of the remaining lime.
