Sassy Senorita & Fish Tacos

Time for some good food. The selection of fresh fish at my local grocery store is impressive. I am amazed at all the different types of fish and the best part is the price is right. Being a single-mom means I have to budget and find the best deals! I usually buy Talapia or Flounder. I like the thin-cut fillets because I add it to salads or have it in corn-tortilla tacos. It is healthy and delicious. So join me for some fun Tex-Mex Fish Tacos. Lets set the table, put on a gorgeous apron, and start cooking!! (I'm posting my Ruby Red Sassy Senorita apron and matching towel below).

Invite some friends over because the Fish Fiesta has started!! Talapia fish tacos are easy to make and quick to prepare. The quickest way for me to cook is on the stove top in a pan that has been lightly coated with non-stick spray. My kids love grilled talapia with a kick. I have a seasoning called "Five Pepper". It is spices and pepper flakes that smell and taste amazing. I like my tacos topped with guacamole and grilled pineapples. My kids add shredded cheese to just about everything, including fish tacos. Don't forget to have some chips & salsa and cold drinks. It's party time.
6 (6-oz.) talapia fillets
4 limes
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
6 flour or corn tortillas
1 can of pineapple rings1 cup of chopped cilantro
Toppings: Guacamole, salsa, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, lime, cilantro
Rinse fish and pat dry
Place fish in a shallow dish and squeeze lime over fillets
Season fish with salt and red pepper flakes
Lightly grease a large non-stick pan, and heat at medium temperature
Grill for 4 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork, turning once.
Place pineapple rings in the pan and grill until softened
Cut fillet and pineapples into chunks
Place on warmed tortillas
Top fish tacos with garnishments as desired
