Mexican Tilapia (Video) (Recipe)
If you are trying to get your family to eat a little healthier, we've got a recipe that's easy to make and delicious. It's a twist on tacos, but you use fresh or thawed white fish fillets instead of ground beef.
- 1-1/2 lbs white fish fillets, thawed if frozen
- 1/2 tsp homemade taco seasoning
- 1 cup pico de gallo (a must)
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup crushed tortilla chips
- guacamole, garnish
- black olives, garnish
- sour cream, garnish
- jalapenos, garnish
- lime wedges
PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x12 baking dish.
Rinse the fillets well and pat dry with paper towels. Lay fillets side by side in the prepared baking dish. Squeeze lime juice over the fillets and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste.
Bake for 10 minutes and bring out of the oven. Cover fillets with pico de gallo (or salsa if you wish). Sprinkle with freshly grated cheddar cheese and top with crushed tortilla chips. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked and flakes easily with a fork.
At this point, you would plate the fillets and garnish with guacamole, black olives, sour cream, jalapenos and lime wedges. Serve with Spanish or Mexican Rice.
