Spicy Blackened Fish Tacos
Updated: Sep 28, 2018
Improving your life, one taco at a time. This week I for sure thought I was screwed because I feel like I am running out of taco ideas? This one was on a whim and the best part for me was the pineapple salsa! I woke up with heartburn but oh baby it was worth it!
What you'll need:
-Tilapia or Halibut
-Cajun seasoning, Mrs. dash southwest chipotle and fiesta lime, paprika, & garlic powder
-Pineapple, jalapenos, red onion, cilantro
-Tortillas, avocado oil
-Sour cream, Sriracha, coleslaw + seasonings
I'll link up the recipe card below!
I always forget like 2 items in my photos. Rockin' it.
So I like to let the fish set in the seasoning while I chop up my salsa. I used Tilapia because the Halibut was super esssssspensive.
Coat your fish very well! Just let them sit for 10 minutes or however long it takes you to chop up salsa and make your slaw. I did the slaw next because I like it to sit in the fridge and resonate.
My dad keeps asking for a breakdown for this......are you listening dad??? Hello?
One heaping spoonful of sour cream, cabbage or coleslaw, + whatever seasoning you want. I taste as I season so it is not too salty nor season-less.
This time I added in Sriracha, Spicy Garlic Seasoning and some Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning.
Mix well and then add your slaw.
Tip on picking the best pineapple. Put it up so it is standing. Pull on the leaves in the middle of the pineapple. If it easily comes out of the head of the pineapple, you got yourself a good one. Otherwise it is not ripe enough to put it back.
I look ridiculous in grocery stores using all of my weird crunchy methods to buy my produce lol.
It's so colorful + full of flavor! I was eating it with tortilla chips while I was waiting. SO good. I can see this being good on a lot of food. Chicken, Steak, other fish dishes.
#ChosenFoods......do I get a sponsorship yet?
Make sure you cook the fish on medium high so you get this nice dark crisp to it. It will be full of flavor and amazeballs!
Now all that is left to do is cook your tortillas, put your fish in the tortilla, slaw, then salsa! Yum!
