Spray a large oven-proof skillet with vegetable oil cooking spray. Combine all the vegetables in the skillet and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the fish and seasonings. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake at 350 for 15 minutes, until the fish is done.

Chef’s Tips:

Add a little lemon juice or fresh salsa as a garnish. Serve your tacos with beans, rice, and a salad.

To make your own taco seasoning, combine 1 teaspoon each of cumin, chili powder, dried cilantro, and garlic powder with 2 teaspoons of dried onion.
