Mexican Low Fat Fish Wraps makes a delicious snack. I have used basa fish fillets in this recipe. I have grilled fish to preserve the nutritional value of fish. You can also shallow fry the marinated fish fillets and add them to the wraps. Fish as you know are fish in omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for the proper functioning of heart and brain. Fish is also a rich source of protein and vitamin D. These wraps are made with tomato and onion salsa and yogurt sauce. Addition of salsa makes these wraps lip-smacking delicious. You can serve this dish to children too. This dish is mildly spiced with black pepper and green chilli. But the addition of lemon juice and yogurt adds a tangy taste to it.
