Tex Mex Salmon!

Love Mexican food but is now trying to eat healthy? Good news! Today we have a recipe guaranteed to squash your Mexican food cravings but won't make your cholesterol and fat blood levels soar ;-) Presenting to you -- Tex Mex Salmon! Yup, salmon as in fish. That's what make this "Mexican" recipe healthy. Plus the fact we won't be frying anything in oil or lard. But, don't push it and eat as much as you can -- that's still unhealthy! :p Anyway, happy cooking and always, always eat moderately!

Ingredients (6 servings)
1 7 oz. package of Ortega taco chips/shells
2 lbs. salmon fillets in pieces (you can actually use any fish you want)
1/2 cup olive oil (or any healthy oil you want)
Taco sauce (optional)

Heat taco shells/chips according to package directions.
In food processor or blender, finely crush shells. Blend in Taco seasoning.
Dip fish in olive oil. Coat with crumbs.
Arrange in shallow baking dish.
Bake in preheated 425 degrees F oven for half hour or until fish flakes easily when macerated with a fork.
Serve with Taco sauce (optional).
