Blackened Tilapia Tacos

Fish tacos have never tasted so good.

Serve with cilantro-lime red cabbage slaw, sour cream, or greek yogurt for a combo of crunch, color, and tang.

Total Time:
Level: Easy
Serves: 4


  • 2 (6) oz. tilapia fillets
  • 2 tsp. blackened spice rub (such as Chef Paul Prudhomme's Blackened Redfish Magic)
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ¾ c. frozen corn, thawed (or fresh kernels cut from 1 ear)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 8 (6-inch) corn or whole wheat tortillas, warmed


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 1 min. Coat fillets with spice rub. Add 1 tsp oil to pan, heat for another min, then add fish. Cook tilapia until well browned and cooked through, 2 to 3 min per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat remaining tsp oil in same pan over high heat. Cook corn and bell pepper, stirring once or twice, until vegetables are browned, about 5 min.
  3. Slice each fillet into 4 pieces. Divide tilapia and corn mixture among tortillas and serve with toppings of your choice (we recommend this colorful Cilantro-Lime Red Cabbage Slaw).
