Tilapia Fish Tacos

These are EXACTLY like the ones I had on the pier at Ocean Beach in San Diego a few months ago....

Tilapia Fish Tacos
3 Tilapia fillets
12 corn tortillas
shredded cabbage (about 2 cups)
Fresh Cilantro chopped (about 3/4 cup)
cooking Oil

3/4 C. sour cream
2 TBSP mayonnaise
1 Tsp chopped cilantro
garlic powder
onion powder

First heat about 1 inch oil in shallow pan. Then dip each tortilla in the hot oil, frying for only a few seconds to soften. layer them between paper towels, set aside.
Shred cabbage and chop cilantro, set aside.

Prepare the sauce. Mix all ingredients in small bowl, season to taste.

Next. season your fish on both sides with your favorite seafood seasoning, or just use some Cajun spices, and garlic powder, salt and pepper. Next, grill fish or saute in pan with small amount of oil until cooked through.

To prepare taco: Stack 2 warm tortillas together. Cut each Tilapia fillet in half lengthwise. Put 1/2 fillet in each taco. Next give fish a squirt of lime. Sprinkle some of the cilantro on the fish, top with some shredded cabbage, and last drizzle the sauce on the top. ENJOY!
