Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Tacos



Blackened Tilapia Tacos 010
Started the day with a couple of slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, a Scrambled Egg, all on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Great way to start the day. Got my morning workout in and went to Kroger to pick up a few items. On the way home stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad, along with their Morning Coffee. Back home it was house cleaning day; the usual dust, vacuum, and straightening every thing up. For dinner tonight it’s Blackened Tilapia Tacos, which could become a go to favorite!

To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillet down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and heated flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. I then took a fork and cut the Tilapia up into smaller pieces for the Tacos.

I used Mission Flour Soft Tortillas for my Tortillas. Then for toppings, along with the Blackened Tilapia, I used; Wholly Molly Guacamole, Fresh Cilantro, Green Giant Steam Crisp Sweet Corn Kernels, Sliced Black and Green Olives, Chopped Jalapeño Slices, and Dole Crushed Pineapple. Put all this on your Taco and you are in business! Just a perfect blend of the Blackened Tilapia, a little heat from the Jalapeño Pepper, and the sweetness from the Corn and Crushed Pineapple. We had some delicious Tacos tonight! For dessert later a SO Delicious Dairy Free Minis Vanilla Sandwich.
