Ingredients

TACOS

8 tortillas, warmed

1/3 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

Optional garnish: favorite hot sauce, avocado slices, lime wedges

BLACKENED TILAPIA
4 tilapia filets (~1.5 lbs)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cayenne (optional)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper

CILANTRO GARLIC SLAW
8 cups shredded green cabbage,
sliced very thin (about 1 whole
cabbage)
¾ cup full fat Greek yogurt
¼ cup mayo
¼ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup fresh cilantro, coarsely
chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp. salt + extra to taste
1 tsp. black pepper

Preparation

PREPARE SLAW
1. In a large mixing bowl, add the greek yogurt, mayo, red wine vinegar, chopped cilantro, minced garlic, honey, salt, and pepper. Whisk together until combined. Add your finely sliced green cabbage and stir until evenly coated with dressing. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

PREPARE FISH
1. To make the fish seasoning, add onion powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and black pepper to a small bowl and whisk until evenly combined.
2. Preheat a large skillet to medium and add 2 Tbsp olive oil. Pat tilapia filets dry on both sides with a paper towel. Sprinkle seasoning on both sides of tilapia and rub into filets with your fingers.
3. Place your tilapia filets in the hot skillet and cook for 3–4 minutes per side, or until opaque and cooked through (internal temperature of 145 degrees). Depending on the size of your skillet, you may need to cook fish in two batches so your fish are not overcrowded in the pan.
MAKE TACOS
1. Fill each tortilla with slaw and break apart tilapia filets with a fork into desired-size pieces. Top with chopped fresh cilantro. Serve with your favorite hot sauce, avocado slices, and lime wedges.
