Tickle Your Taste Buds Tuesday

Blackened Fish Tacos

Did you read the post just below this one? I am having contest to give away a cook book... go there and take a look and leave a comment so you can have a chance to win!

This is a new recipe from the It's good for you cookbook below. We had it last night for dinner and it was delish! It was inexpensive, easy, quick, and yummy. I don't know about you but I like that combination!

1/4 green onion with the green part --sliced
1 handfull of cilantro (about 1/3 to half of the bunch) chopped
juice from 1 lime
1 tablespoon veg. oil
1 garlic clove finely chopped or pressed
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon Blackened seasoning
1/2 small bag of broccoli slaw

2 tilapia fillets about 1 lb
same blackened seasoning

1 avocado sliced
6-8 corn tortillas warmed

a little shredded cheese I use a mix of yellow and white you only need maybe 1/2 a cup

Preheat oven to 400

for the slaw, combine green onions, cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic clove, sugar, and seasoning. mix together add in slaw and toss until all coated. Cover and put in the fridge until ready to eat.

Rince the fish and place on your baking pan, sprinkle with the blacking seasoning bake until flakey about 12-18 min.

While the fish is cooking slice the avocado, warm the tortillas and grate the cheese. When the fish is ready plate it all up and serve. We ate 3 small tortillas each. Steve and I both really really like these. They were light, fresh, and filling. I didn't even make any sides.

This is a picture before we ate! Hope you enjoy let me know if you make them and what you though or if you changed anything!
