Blackened Fish Tacos

A couple weeks ago I was craving tacos so bad (per usual) but I wanted them to be low calorie. I'm not a fish fan at all. I love shellfish but not fish fish. I decided that I was going to make myself like tilapia and whipped up these blackened fish tacos for dinner. I loved them! They didn't taste fishy at all, they were super easy, the husband loved them and I had extra slaw to make shrimp tacos two nights later. Win win!  

Blackened Fish Tacos
For the fish
4-5 tilapia filets
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like it!)
2 tbsp olive oil
10-12 corn tortillas
For the slaw
1/4 red cabbage, chopped
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1/2 cup cilantro
juice of 1 lime 

For the avocado sauce
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cilantro
juice of 1 lime
sprinkle of sea salt

1. Combine ingredients for avocado sauce in a food processor or blender, blend until thoroughly mixed & set aside in fridge to chill.
2. Combine ingredients for slaw in a small bowl, mix well & set aside.
3. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients for fish seasoning. Sprinkle the mixture on to both sides of the fish & rub the seasoning in to coat each filet.
4. Heat skillet to medium-high heat, add olive oil & add each piece of fish once the pan has heated. Cook on each side for 5 minutes or until fish is cooked through and is flaking apart & outside looks blackened.
5. Heat a dozen corn tortillas in the same pan, or in the microwave. Break apart all of the fish into small pieces, add to the tortillas & top with slaw and sauce. 
6. Serve & enjoy!
