4 halibut fillets (about 11/2 pounds)
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
Non-stick cooking spray
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
8 small whole-wheat, low-carb tortillas (10 grams carb and more than 7 grams fiber), warmed

In a medium bowl, combine lime juice, red pepper flakes, and cilantro. Add fish to marinade and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Remove fish from marinade and season with salt (optional) and pepper.
Coat large saute pan with cooking spray. Saute jalapeno pepper over medium heat for 2 minutes; then add halibut and sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes on each side.
Remove fish and peppers from pan and shred fish into large pieces, mixing the pepper while shredding.
In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients.
Evenly divide fish among 8 tortillas. Top each taco with a dollop of yogurt sauce.
