Fish Tacos! July 10, 2012 – Posted in: Cooking

So, remember when I posted about the Zaycon chicken and I was wishing for the Tilapia to come? Well, IT DID! I jumped on it immediately and The Hubs and I have been in fish heaven! One of my very favorite things about it is that it cooks up so quickly and is a mild, delicious fish.

So I figured I’d share one of our favorite new recipes with you! It’s fast, yummy, and you won’t be sorry!

To make these easy fish tacos, you’ll need:
Tilapia fillets
2-3 limes
olive oil
garlic powder
tomatoes
onion
cilantro
avocado
corn tortillas

First I take a few fillets in a lined baking dish. I put a little olive oil on them and squeeze a lot of fresh lime juice over top. A sprinkling of garlic powder on top and throw them under the broiler for a few minutes (mine took about 10).

While they’re broiling, chop up some white onion, avocado (pretend it’s not brown!), cilantro and tomato. I have 2 piles of tomatoes because I have to cut the seeds out of mine in order to eat them. I can’t eat citric acid or it kills my tongue!

I let the fish sit for a few minutes on the cutting board before cutting it. The fish should be flaky and white when it’s cooked properly. Check it often, if you leave it too long, it’ll be tough and rubbery. No one likes tough and rubbery fish! Doesn’t it look delicious?!

Then I cut the fish into chunks and put it into my warmed corn tortillas.

Then I place the rest of my toppings on the fish and finish with another squeeze of lime. I love the lime!

The whole meal takes 20 minutes from start to finish. It’s fast, healthy, and most importantly, delicious! Try it, you’ll thank me. (I hope!)
