Taco Tuesday: Tilapia with Avocado Salsa


I actually received this recipe from my cousin, Melissa, and thanks to her, we had a delicious dinner last night.

Tilapia with Avocado Salsa
Marinate the fish: (I let it sit for 15 min)
1 tbls cumin
1 tbls red chili powder
1 tsp salt
Lime juice (2)
2 tomatoes
2 jalapeños (remove seeds)
Lots of chopped cilantro
Lime juice (l think I used 2)
1 Avocado
I pan seared the fish for about 15 minutes and topped the tacos with shredded red cabbage. The recipe called for sole but I used tilapia.

Here is a pic of Meli’s version, and the chef herself.

This was a quick and easy recipe, and I would highly recommend trying it out. I used lemons as well as limes, simply because I didn’t have enough limes. Since, as you know, we love spicy food in my house, we added a little Sriracha hot sauce. But that’s it. Usually I do some tweaking to recipes, but this was fantastic as is.
