Fish burritos were something I never enjoyed until I moved out to California and even then it took me awhile. I was a huge fan of the fish taco but for some reason I never made the leap to the burrito until recently. This version uses a citrus and ancho chili powder marinated tilapia stuffed in a low carb wrap with lots of fixings - cabbage, blakc soy beans, tomatoes, cilantro, and avocado. There is also some corn in the photo since I made a higher carb and lower carb version, but you'll want to leave that out to keep the carbohydrates lower in the recipe.
