Fish Taco Salad

This is a delicious keto low carb fish taco salad recipe! I personally enjoy salads year-round. However, this fresh keto low carb fish taco salad is really good during the summer months. For me, it makes a great low carb substitute for “fish taco” Tuesday and satisfies my taste for a fish burger. And, what is more, it makes losing weight and keeping it off super easy!

This fish taco salad is really easy to make and enjoy. I used only a few basic ingredients including tilapia, iceberg lettuce, purple cabbage, cilantro, tomato, cucumber, green onions, yellow bell pepper, and tartar sauce. If you enjoy your fish taco or fish burger a certain way, simply tweak the recipe to fit your taste.

Historically, I enjoyed my fish taco and fish burger without any cheese. Therefore, I did not add any cheese to this low carb fish taco salad. Then too, the fish tacos that I enjoyed for many Tuesdays did not come with avocados. Therefore, I did not add avocados to this salad in an effort to recreate the familiar.

One thing I did do differently is add green onions, cucumbers, and bell peppers. So, you could always omit these ingredients and/or add cheese and avocado. Either way, if you typically enjoy fish burgers or fish tacos, you will really enjoy this low carb fish taco salad recipe.
