Tilapia Fish Tacos
Mexican food is one of my favorite cuisines and it’s full of tradition and flavor. I want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday, with this Tilapia Taco recipe.

Ingredients

(4 SERVINGS)

  • 1 Pound tilapia fish
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • Juice of 2 limes, divided
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 small avocado, diced
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

  1. Place the fish on a plate and sprinkle with the cumin, salt, pepper and chili powder, if you want a kick. Drizzle with olive oil and the juice of 1 lime.
  2. Preheat a skillet over medium- high heat. Add the fish and cook until golden on the outside. Remove from the skillet and transfer to a plate.
  3. Combine the avocado, juice of 1 lime, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Heat the tortillas in an ungreased nonstick pan and wrap the tortillas in a clean towel to keep them warm.
  5. To assemble the tacos, place an equal amount of the tilapia in each tortilla, along with a big spoonful of the avocado mixture and top with shredded lettuce. Serve with favorite salsa on the side.

Tilapia is something my & my kids have ( my hubby does not eat fish) atleast twice a week, & with the same spices:-D I guess Indian spices are very similar to yours. I have never made anything so elegant like this one tho! Such a great idea & an easy healthy meal.
