Fish Tacos: Tilapia with Tomato Avocado Salsa

FoodFood for the Body
April 13, 2011 / By / , , , , , / 1 Comment

There are two recipes here.  I found both of them on one of my FAVORITE websites, eatingwell.com.  The first recipe is grilled fish, the second is a salsa to top the fish.  Delicious.

Here’s a snapshot of what you’ll need for the salsa.

What you’ll need for the fish taco part.

Start by mixing all the ingredients to make a paste.

  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • I used tilapia.  You can use mahi, halibut, any white fish, really.  Rub the paste on the tilapia.

    Let the fish absorb the mix for about 20 minutes, or the time it takes you to make the salsa.

    Now for the salsa!  It should be noted that I double this recipe, because we like lots of salsa.  It calls for jalapenos, but I didn’t add them in as some peops around here like MILD salsa. :)

    Grab your cutting board and knife…

    Chop up one large tomato.  My fav are the vine-ripened ones.

    Add 1/4 cup of chopped red onions.

    Add 2-3 Tbsp of lemon juice.

    Add 1/4 tsp salt.

    Add 1/8 tsp of pepper.

    Add 1/2 an avocado.

    I’ve been told my avocado cutting technique is “different,” so I thought I’d share.  I slice it in squares in the peel first.

    Then I just pinch out the avocado.  No need for a spoon to scoop it out.

    Add 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro.

    And voila!  Here’s the amazing salsa.  Set it aside, for now it’s time to tend to the fish.

    Spray your pan with a little olive oil spray (it’s how I cook all meats—no need to slap on tbsps butter or oil!)  Heat it up to medium heat.

    Toss the fish on the pan and cover.  Leave covered and cook for just a few minutes.  (3-5 min.)

    While the fish is cooking, heat up the griddle to cook up your choice tortilla.  My hubby was feeling flour tortilla, while I was feeling corn.  Both are delectable!

    Flip the fish when the bottom sides are white.  Cover again for 3 minutes.  The fish should easily flake off when cooked.

    Take your tortilla, fill it with your fish, and top it with the salsa, and enjoy!

    I love making extras so we’re set for lunches tomorrow!
