  • 1
    In a small bowl, whisk together chili powder, cumin, salt and cayenne together until blended. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the tilapia filets, coating both sides.
  • 2
    Heat olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add filets and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from heat, and break up the fish into smaller pieces with a fork.

    Portion the fish evenly into the bottom of the four taco shells, then layer with lettuce, avocado, and then sprinkle with lime juice to taste. Serve immediately.

More About This Recipe
There’s a reason why fish tacos are a favorite! I’m so excited to be sharing this recipe with you all today…because I am seriously nuts about tilapia fish tacos. They are one of my all-time favorite meals to make, partly because they can be ready to go in less than 20 minutes, and partly because they’re healthy and fresh. But mostly I love fish tacos because they are just so good. Like, SO good! I have taught a handful of friends over the years how to make fish tacos, and I always recommend they start with tilapia. It’s a great mild fish, inexpensive, and really easy to cook.
