Tilapia Soft Tacos



My sister in law Cheryl was so kind to get me a subscription to the Food Network magazine for my birthday, I was looking through it the other day and I saw a great fish taco recipe. The taco looks so good, light and refreshing, perfect for one of these hot June nights we have been getting. I used the concept of the recipe but my husband and I changed the way the fish was done. This was my first time to ever eat a fish taco; I loved it a great deal. The flavor was simply incredible and it was extremely easy to prepare.


3 - Eggs (beaten)
1 C. - Flour
2 C. - Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
4 - Tilapia Fillets
2 Tbs. - Johnny's Garlic Season
Soft Tortilla Wraps
Lettuce Shreds
Pica De Gallo
Pace Pineapple Mango Chipotle Salsa


Place 3 shallow dishes on the counter, in one place the eggs, in another the flour and Johnny's in the last is the Parmesan cheese. Dip one piece of fish into the egg then into the flour, shake off the excess and dip into the egg again then into the cheese pressing firmly to get a good coating. Do the same with the remaining fish. Cook on a preheated electric skillet at 325 degrees for 5-8 minutes on each side or until the cheese is golden brown and crispy. Lay out one tortilla wrap and on one side lay down some lettuce shreds, place 2 pieces of fish on top then spoon on some salsa and pica de gallo.

I just had fish tacos yesterday and this makes me want them again. I had them with cod, but tilapia sounds better! Thank you!

Oh, I love fish tacos, but haven't made them in years. This version sounds awesome, and I have a ton of Johnny's to use up - I've got to put this on my menu for this summer.

My boyfriend loves fish tacos, but I am not a seafood eater so he only gets them on the rarest of occasions. Perhaps I will make these for his birthday.

Love fish tacos. We love them made with blackened catfish and a bit of chipotle slaw. YUM. That mango salsa would be stellar on a fish taco!!

I adore fish tacos but I don't make it often (the last time I tried, it was rather subpar). This recipe has me thinking it's time for another try!
