Ok so whose ready for the Tilapia Taco Tuesday recipe ! I know I am! This recipe is oh so easy , delicious with a quick clean up!
I always buy my fish from Stew Leonard’s I find it to be super fresh. I get a pound that’s enough for 2-3 people.
1 lb. of tilapia
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Chili powder to taste
Garlic powder to taste
A splash of cayenne pepper
Juice of one lime
Olive oil to cover the fish
Non stick cooking spray.
Tortillas for serving
Guacamole for serving
Onions and tomatoes
Cheese and sour cream ( my husband is partial to these I try avoid dairy )
So, the first thing I do is preheat the oven to 400
Then I get a baking pan or sheet and I lay aluminum foil to fully cover it to allow for easy clean up.
Next I spray it with non stick cooking spray I do olive oil spray.
I take the fish out of the package and pat it dry with a paper towel to take out excess moisture this allows the fish to get a healthy crispy crust!
Then I pour a little olive oil onto the fish to fully massage and rub it in.
After I take the juice from a lime ! I only use fresh lime juice and massage it in !
Then I generously sprinkle it with salt and pepper.
After I mix all of the other spices in a bowl and spoon it to cover the fish and massage it in.
I put the fish in a preheated oven at 400 degrees where it bakes for 25 minutes !
*Note- while the fish is baking I wrap all of the tortillas in aluminum foil tightly and allow them to warm and soften while the fish bakes for serving.
Tip! I seal the foil as we take out tortillas to keep them warm.
I break the fish up with a fork and fill the tacos and put whatever toppings you like!
Serve and enjoy !
