Thanks to the kind comments over on FB about this very simple dinner of grilled tilapia for the fish tacos. Jeannine, here you go :). By the way, if you like interior design and fabric, please check out Jeannine Petteruti Design. She does fabulous work and has a fantastic eye. Plus, totally cool woman with a cool sense of style and fun to work with. Another post is coming about my experience with Jeannine and caring about fabric 🙂
First, I did NOT have time to get to either Wegmans or Bucks County Seafood and had to “settle” for the tilapia filets. I’m picky with my fish and get a little bummed when I can’t find other options.
I stuck the fish in a zip lock bag with lime juice, salt/pepper, decent chili powder, red pepper flakes, cilantro and a little olive oil. Let the fish marinate for a few hours.
The crema is just a little sour cream and lime juice. A bed of greens on the bottom grilled corn tortillas, fish, fresh mango and topped with the crema (optional, of course). Use a little shredded cheese for texture. I also made a fresh salsa. Simply tomatoes and onion, drizzle of olive oil, a little fresh garlic and cilantro, juice of one lime, salt and pepper to taste. Stir. Yummy.
