Tilapia Fish Tacos

  • 2 lbs. tilapia fillet
  • 6 to 8 pieces (8 inch diameter) flour tortilla
  • 1 cup tomato, diced
  • 1 medium red onion sliced
  • ¾ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 piece lime
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium jalapeño, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1½ tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  1. In a medium bowl, create the salsa fresca by combining tomatoes, cilantro, onion, jalapeño, olive oil, and juice of 1 lime. Mix gently. Set aside.
  2. Rub salt and chili powder on the tilapia fillets.
  3. Heat a pan and sear both sides of the tilapia until fully cooked. This might take about 3 to 5 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the fillet. Remove the fish from the pan and chop into serving pieces (about 1 x 1 inch).
  4. Cover the tortilla with paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds.
  5. Lay each flour tortilla in a flat surface. Arrange about ½ cup of chopped tilapia, salsa fresca, and chopped cabbage over each tortilla. Top with a tablespoon of sour cream, and squeeze a little lime juice.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate. Serve.
