These Tilapia Fish Tacos are an easy and healthy dinner solution!
We LOVE tacos here in our house, we end up eating some form of tacos two or three times a week. The one thing I have tried to work into our menu is fish. Fish is a good source of omega vitamins which has so many benefits.
We don’t eat fish nearly often enough so I buy frozen tilapia filets, but there are always fresh filets available in the market. I take the filets out rinse them off and lay them on a paper towel.
The first time we made these tacos I seasoned them with 3 different flavors, because I wasn’t sure which flavor would be best. We salt and peppered one set, chili powdered another and used original flavored Mrs. Dash on the rest. Afterwards they were added to a medium hot pan with a bit of olive oil.
The tilapia was cooked on each side for 3-4 minutes on medium heat. I just used a non stick frying pan, but I would have loved to grill these to get nice grill marks.
Each half of the filets were flaked into a taco with spinach. I found that delicious all by itself, but you could try a hot pepper sauce or delicious cabbage slaw on top. The seasoning we liked best was the Mrs. Dash.
