These tilapia fish tacos are similar to the type of tacos you can buy at taco trucks. Simple and full of flavor.
Blackened then pan-seared tilapia with a creamy onion and jalapeno topping.
These tacos are completely satisfy that I doubt that you’ll miss the traditional tomatoes, lettuce, or sour cream toppings on your taco.
These tilapia filets are seared to perfection in 6 minutes. That’s right, six, as in cinco (I mean seis! Mom & Dad, aren’t you proud of my Spanish skills 😉 !).

- 2 tablespoons cilantro
- Juice from 1 lime
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped

Prepare the fish, warm the tortillas, and assemble the tacos!
Take at least another six (seis!) minutes to eat them, won’t you?! 🙂
I love cooking Tilapia. The fish is firm and has a mild taste, which is easy to adapt to any combination of flavors.
