Low FODMAP fish tacos
I usually make my tacos with meat, such as minced meat or chicken and I recently also made vegetarian tacos but I actually never thought about making tacos with white fish.
Until I heard somebody describe how amazing fish tacos are. I knew: I have to try this too. I made delicious low FODMAP fish tacos with tilapia fillet.
Fish tacos are usually made with soft corn tortillas. I wanted to use corn tortillas too, but unfortunately, I could not find them anymore in the supermarkets in the Netherlands.
They usually had them in the gluten-free isle, but not anymore. Therefore, I choose to use hard-shell tacos. If you have gluten-free corn tortillas available, you can use these too.
Love taco’s? Then make sure to check out the other taco recipes on my blog too:

I must say, even though I was a bit sad that I couldn’t find the soft tortillas, I love hard shell tacos too. They give a nice crunch to the dish!Print

*Tomatoes have been retested in 2022 and are now limited low FODMAP up to 65 gram per serving. If you are still in the elimination phase, I advise using a maximum of 65 gram per person.
**Avocado is limited low FODMAP. 1/8 avocado per person is low FODMAP. If you tolerate avocado well, you can also double the amounts for the sauce (4 tbsp yoghurt, ½ avocado)
