Tilapia Fish Tacos

These fish tacos were easy to throw together and so delicious. My husband and I decided we wouldn’t change a thing about them and I’ll definitely be making them again!

Prep: 8-10 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes


  • canola oil
  • 4-6 tilapia filets- cut into strips

Batter to dredge fish in:

  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Tortilla and Toppings:

  • Salsa
  • Cilantro
