Blackened Fish Tacos

These blackened fish tacos come together in under 30 minutes and make a delicious weeknight meal. Spiced white fish is folded into warm tortillas, topped with lettuce, onion and pepper.

You can make fish tacos with any firm white fish you prefer: tilapia, cod, mahi mahi, snapper, etc.

To blacken the fish, rub it with spices and then sear it briefly at high heat until the outside just starts to blacken. The fish will be slightly crispy on the outside, moist, tender and flaky on the inside.
