I want some!!! Trying to find a good recipe but can't find one. No Trader Joe's close to me so how would you prepare the fish? Looking for a good simple but tasty idea!!<br><br>
Thanks!!!<br><br>
Can I get your recipe for your lime slaw again?<br><br>
How about if you just come over and cook for me?

Well... i don't particularly like Trader Joe's... But I do like tilapia... I buy fresh tilapia fillets at my grocery store. I either ask them to add Cajun marinade or apply my own spice rub at home. I toss the fillets on my BBQ grill (though I live in New England, I keep it shoveled and grill year-round) for about 2 minutes on a side. The fish is pretty thin and fragile so make sure your grill is kept clean, apply a little oil before putting the fish on, and use a big flat spatula that you can get under the entire fillet. Don't overcook - they just need to turn white and "opaque" in the center.<br><br>
We'll then eat them in tacos, in a fish sandwich, or just on a plate with sides. Ummm... good.

Costco carries panko tilapia too. Just saw it the other day. Any good battered or breaded frozen fish works.<br><br>
John's grill method is an excellent alternative. I usually spritz a bit of lime juice and sprinkle on salt, pepper, and cumin when I grill for tacos.<br><br>
Lime slaw recipe may be found in this thread...<a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum//showthread.php?t=20290" target="_blank">http://www.kickrunners.com/forum//sh...ad.php?t=20290</a>

One thing the northeast is seriously missing is places to get good fish tacos. There's nothing here like there is in Cali. What I would give for Wahoo's Fish Tacos right now.<br><br>
FWIW, the Super Wal*Mart near our house carries tortilla encrusted frozen tilapia. Is actually very good and makes a decent fish taco. It's just not the same though.<br><br><img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

I get to go to Wahoos for the first time on Saturday! <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br><br>
I like to put blackened seasoning and lemon or lime on my tilapia and then I pan sear it. I spray the nonstick skillet with PAM and then add a little bit of oil and get the oil real hot. It cooks quickly so keep your eye on it.<br><br>
I get Romero's corn tortillas (the 53 calorie ones).<br><br>
I also chop up cabbage and make an aioli that I mix the cabbage in. Cayenne aioli-Light mayo, cayenne, lime juice and 1 clove pressed garlic.<br><br>
Put it all together with some grated cheese and avocado slices and you're done.<br><br>
The whole thing takes about 10 minutes to make. You can't go wrong!
