I crave fish tacos all the time.

Simple Fish Tacos

I could eat them fried, grilled, spicy or with shrimp.  Holy moly I love them.  Now I will have to admit that I am a big supporter of homemade flour tortillas, but with fish tacos you have to give justice to them and serve them the traditional way in corn tortillas.  YOU JUST HAVE TOO.

Simple Fish Tacos
This is the first time that we made them with an avocado sauce.  I think it will be my new go to sauce for fish or shrimp tacos; it is just that good.  Trust me on this.

This week, my dad has made the trip down from Brady to visit my mom.  He is always complaining about how when he visits we always go out to eat.  Well, he had a different menu last night.  We served up the fish tacos with a cheesy rice and it was all demolished within about 20 minutes.  They all enjoyed a nice refreshing beer with their fish tacos while I enjoyed a nice refreshing ice water.  I just can’t seem to get enough.

Fish Seasoning

Lay out the tilapia filets and cut them in half.

Sprinkle each filet with the seasoning.

Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil over low/medium heat in saute pan.

Cook the filets 3-4 minutes on each side. Be careful when flipping or they will flake apart and break.

Fixing the Taco

Warm the corn tortillas so they are soft.

Top with a spoonful of the avocado sauce and place some fish down on top.

Then place a handful of cabbage and cilantro on top of the fish.

If you like a lot of sauce add more to the top.

  1. I adore fish tacos, Megan, these sound just perfect. I make an avocado sauce with mine that I add sour cream (lately it’s been Greek yogurt) that we love too. This is my kind of dish!
