Blackened Fish Tacos

These fish tacos are so yummy, they taste so fresh and authentic and they are super easy to make.  I adapted these from this Pampered Chef recipe book.  This is a good stand alone meal or can be paired with a fresh green salad.

Blackened Fish Tacos


1/4 cup sliced green onions
2 tbsp snipped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 tsp sugar or splenda
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
2 cups broccoli slaw mix

1lb tilapia fish fillets
1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
1 avocado, seeded and sliced
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed
3 medium radishes

1.  For slaw, combine green onions, cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic, sugar and seasoning; whisk until blended. Add slaw mix; toss to coat. Cover; refrigerate until ready to serve. This tastes much better if you let it chill for a few hours. 

2.  Heat grill pan over medium heat 5 minutes. Moisten fish fillets with water and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Lightly spray pan with non stick spray. Place fillets in pan; cook over medium heat 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork, carefully turning once. Remove from heat. Flake fish into bite size pieces.

3.  Cut avocado in half lengthwise; remove seed and cut flesh away from skin. Cut one avocado half into slices. Warm tortillas. Top tortillas evenly with slaw mixture and fish. Grate radishes evenly over fish. Top with avocado slices.
