Tilapia Tacos


  • 6 tilapia filets
  • corn tortillas
  • shredded cabbage
  • pico de gallo
  • 1/8 salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin

Suggested Toppings: avocado slices, lime, cilantro dressing (I really like the one from Trader Joe’s)

Suggested Sides: rice (cilantro lime or traditional Mexican), fiesta corn, black beans




  1. Prep everything but the fish and tortillas as they are the least time consuming. Chop lettuce, make your pico, and cook your sides.
  2. Mix salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder in a bowl. Rub into both sides of tilapia.
  3. Grease a frying pan and brown the tilapia. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fish, but usually 2-5 minutes per side
  4. Using two forks, shred cooked tilapia
  5. Serve on heated tortillas, using toppings and suggestions stated above.
