Fish Tacos

Serves 3


1 recipe blackened tilapia 

9 corn tortillas

1 ripe avocado, pitted and thinly sliced (you can watch this video to see how to slice it perfectly)

For Pico de Gallo –

2 tomatoes, seeded and diced

2 tablespoons minced red onions

1/2 lime, juiced

2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon seeded and diced jalapeno (about 1/3 of a jalapeno, depending on your preference)

Pinch salt

For Cilantro Lime Crema –

1/2 cup Greek yogurt (you can also use sour cream; I can’t tell the difference)

2 tablespoons mayonnaise (adds richness and good consistency, optional but recommended)

1 heaping tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro

1/2 lime, juiced

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground chili powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1-2 tablespoons milk or water, to thin sauce to drizzling consistency


  1. Start with the Pico de Gallo – mix together the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, and salt in a small bowl. Let the flavors meld in the fridge for an hour (recommended, or at least 20 minutes).
  2. To make the cilantro lime crema, mix together Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Thin with milk or water until it is drizzling consistency.* Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. To serve – warm the corn tortillas in the microwave, wrapped in a  napkin or paper towel, for 30-45 seconds, or until very warm. Remove the napkin and place 3 tortillas on each plate. Cut each fillet (a pound normally gives you 3) and divide them up among the tortillas. Top evenly with Pico de Gallo and sliced avocado. Drizzle with sauce. Serve immediately.
