New fish tacos

I make fish tacos with tilapia fairly often. I saw a recipe that mixed it up a little and thought I would give it a try. The honey in the slaw gave it a nice sweetness and the onion in the marinade added great flavor. It looks like a lot of steps but it didn’t take very long.

Citrus fish tacos

Marinade

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 TB orange juice
  • 3 TB lime juice
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tilapia filets

Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Season tilapia with salt and pepper. Put half of the marinade in a glass dish, place fish on top and pour remaining marinade over top. Let sit for about 30 minutes.

Slaw

  • 2 cups of bagged slaw mix
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and let sit.

Avocado crema

  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • juice from 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Assembly

  • corn tortillas
  • pickled jalapenos

Heat corn tortillas one at a time in a non-stick pan and place on plates. Top with slaw. Cook tilapia over high heat, about 3 minutes a side. Flake fish and place on top of slaw and top with jalapeno crema and jalapenos (and leftover chopped onion if desired.)

Delicious! Samantha doesn’t like tilapia but I had kept back some cooked chicken from last night’s chicken hummus bowls so she had a chicken taco. Here is the fish version:

And here is the chicken version – Samantha loaded it up with jalapenos!

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
