Easy Mexican Dinner   1 comment

I made these fish tacos the other night and wanted to share.

4 medium tilapia fillets

2 T. olive oil

3 T. lime juice

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 T. fresh chopped cilantro

Mix the above ingredients except for the fish and then marinate the fish for several hours.  Grill fish or cook as you like until done.  Serve with the following toppings and a salsa that you like, on tortillas of your choice.  We like corn tortillas fried in coconut oil.


Cilantro Slaw

@ 3 cups finely chopped cabbage

3 green onions, chopped

3 T. fresh cilantro finely chopped

1 or 2 T. lime juice

Mix all ingredients.


Lime Cream Sauce

1 1/2 cups sour cream

2-3 T. lime juice

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp salt

dash garlic powder

Mix all ingredients.


If you want things more flavorful just add the fun stuff until you reach the level of seasoning you like.  Serves four.  Enjoy!

  1. As a time-saving alternative, oil a baking dish, flip the fish in oil (even frozen has worked), layer/rub the other stuff on the fish, cover with foil, and put in the oven until fish is flaky. (I just use whatever temp the fish package recommends, and we don’t have any right now… I use the frozen fish cuts from Kroger.)

    You won’t have a grilled texture or browning, of course
