Blackened Fish Tacos

This is such a versatile dish; I was eager to give it another try. This version bakes the fish, a healthier alternative to pan frying. 

Blackened Fish Tacos


3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 pound tilapia filets
Juice of one lemon
Olive oil
10 corn tortillas


1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a Ziploc bag.

2. Cut tilapia pieces into halves and brush with olive oil.

3. Place fish in the bag and shake until all pieces are well coated.

4. Remove from bag and sprinkle with lemon juice.

5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a shallow baking dish with olive oil.  Bake fish for 10 to 15 minutes - until it flakes easily with a fork.

Serve in warm tortillas with pico di gallo and guacamole sauce. Creamy lime-cilantro cole slaw is also yummy.
