Blackened Tilapia Tacos

These tacos area easy and delicious! I loved the seasoning on the tilapia. Definitely can't wait to try it again and toss the tilapia in another dish. Maybe over some pasta too. So good!!!

Blackened Tilapia Tacos
slightly adapted from Sarcastic Cooking

1 Teaspoon Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
4 Tilapia Filets
1 ½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
black beans, optional
guacamole (could use just an avacado)
soft tortillas

Combine the dry seasonings in a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Lightly sprinkle each side of the tilapia filets with the seasonings.  Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tilapia to the pan and cook the tilapia for five minutes on each side until fish flakes easily. Warm the tortillas. Spread guacamole on each tortilla and top with some black beans. Place a half or more of a tilapia filet on to each tortilla. Break the filet apart a little bit so it flakes. Serve with pico de gallo or salsa if you desire.

This sounds delicious! I adore fish tacos! My family, though, not so much. I guess I could eat them by myself!

Kathy, for my kids, I usually separate everything out. Beans, guacamole, fish, and tortilla or chips for them. They like it better that way. Hubby and I eat it all together. =)
