Recipe | Cajun Grilled Fish Tacos, Sent in by Kirsten Corda

  • 4 tilapia fillets, thawed
  • 2 Tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 small bag of shredded coleslaw mix
  • Chopped fresh cilantro 
Preheat an indoor grill or heavy non-stick skillet to medium high heat. Pat tilapia fillets dry with a paper towel and sprinkle each fillet with approximately 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning or to taste.

Spray your indoor grill or non-stick skillet with non-stick cooking spray and cook fish for approximately 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, place the mayonnaise, the chipotle pepper in adobo sauce and a dash of lime juice in a food processor or blender and process until smooth.

To assemble tacos, spread the spicy mayonnaise on a corn tortilla and top with coleslaw mix, 1/2 of a fish fillet, chopped cilantro, and a dash of lime juice and any other toppings of your choice and enjoy. Serve with your choice of additional toppings and a fresh garden salad.
