I’ve always loved fish tacos, and making them at home is SO easy! These tilapia fish tacos are full of flavor, and the sauce is absolutely AMAZING. Plus, you can make them in 30 minutes or less! They’re the perfect busy night meal, and they’re delicious. What’s better than a yummy meal that’s quick and easy?
How to Make Tilapia Fish Tacos
First, you’ll prep the fish seasoning. This seasoning has chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, oregano, and salt. Mix all of the seasonings, and then sprinkle it onto the tilapia after patting them dry.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, and place the seasoned tilapia on it. Put the tilapia in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes at 400° F. You’ll know that the fish is done when it’s flaky and opaque. You can also test it with a food thermometer, making sure the thickest point of the fish has reached 145° F. When the tilapia is done cooking, squeeze some lime juice over them to add some extra flavor!
While the fish is cooking, prepare the taco sauce. Simply add the sour cream, mayo, lime juice, garlic, Cholula, chopped jalapeño, smoked paprika, and salt to a blender and pulse until smooth.
You can prepare the corn tortillas however you like, or even use flour tortillas if you prefer! I like to heat a pan/griddle with a little bit of cooking spray/oil, then cook the tortillas on each side until they start to develop golden spots.
Then, assemble the tacos with your favorite toppings! I like to add avocado, shredded cabbage, cotija cheese, and some cilantro, but feel free to add whatever taco toppings you like. You could also try adding my favorite guacamole, if you have some extra time! Don’t forget the taco sauce! It’s the star of the show. ?
