Blackened Tilapia Tacos


1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large tilapia fillets
4 taco shells
1 handful lettuce or cole slaw
1 avocado, diced
2 limes, cut into wedges
  • In a small bowl, whisk together chili powder, cumin, salt and cayenne together until blended. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the tilapia filets, coating both sides.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add filets and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from heat, and break up the fish into smaller pieces with a fork.
  • Portion the fish evenly into the bottom of the four taco shells, then layer with lettuce, avocado, and then sprinkle with lime juice to taste. Serve immediately.
