Fish Tacos 2 Ways

Howdy kids! So if you read my meal plan for the week, you saw tonight was fish night. The girls ate their fish sticks, Annie’s Mac and Cheese, and corn. My hubby wanted to have a fish (tilapia) taco to go along with his leftover Mexican chicken dish. I made myself some salmon and pesto. Good enough on its own, but seeing those tortillas made me want to experiment with salmon tacos. I truly believe that you can make anything into a taco..challenge accepted!!!!!

Tilapia Tacos

1 piece of tilapia- mix 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder- mix well and add to both side of the fish. Add oil to a med. hot skillet. Cook about 4 minutes on both sides.  You should end up with nice flaky fish.

Add to your tortilla and favorite toppings.

Pan fry in a bit of oil. Cook skin side down for 4 minutes. Turn over for another 4 minutes. You should end up with a nice pink center and flaky flesh. YUM!
