  • Rub tilapia fillets with 2 tablespoons lime juice and season with salt, black pepper, and chili powder. Brush both sides of each fillet with olive oil.

  • Grill tilapia on preheated grill until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes on each side.

  • Heat tortillas on an ungreased skillet over medium-high heat for 10 to 15 seconds. Turn and heat for another 5 to 10 seconds. Fill the heated tortillas with flaked tilapia. Top with tomatillo salsa, avocado, and sour cream. Sprinkle with cilantro and 1 tablespoon lime juice.

I made a much smaller version of this for myself using tilapia for the fish. Two of them make a great lunch. The only thing I would change is the reference to "chili powder". In the US, that is a fairly specific spice blend, elsewhere it causes confusion. I just added what I like for heat. You can also add vegetables to fish tacos. In Mexico, thinly slices cabbage, thinly sliced radishes, or thinly slice onions are commonly added to fish tacos. They often make a creamy sauce to go with them. Read More
