Food Friday: Fish Tacos


I posted a picture of these tacos on Instagram recently and had quite a reaction. I am sharing the recipe today as promised. The beauty of this recipe is you can make as many or as few as you like.

Fish Tacos

Frozen Tilapia fillets (One fillet per two tacos)
Shredded cabbage
Sliced red onion
Grated cheddar cheese
Chopped tomatoes
Sour cream
2-3 Limes
Chili powder
Corn tortillas
Salsa
Avocado slices


Thaw Tilapia fillets. Add the zest of one lime to 1/3 cup sour cream. (Use larger portions if needed) Combine shredded cabbage and a few slices of red onion.  Squeeze one lime and stir into cabbage mixture.  Set sour cream and cabbage mixtures aside.

Heat electric skillet or frying pan to 350 degrees.  Spray with cooking spray and place tilapia fillets in pan.  Season with lime juice and chili powder while cooking.  Cook for about three minutes and flip. Season and continue cooking until fish begins to flake - about 2 -3 minutes more. Remove from skillet.

Spray corn tortillas with cooking spray and heat through turning once.

Assemble tacos using one half of a fillet for each taco.  I prefer this order - tortilla, fillet, cheese, cabbage, tomato, sour cream, avocado, and then salsa if there is still room!
