Fish Tacos

I can't believe I have never posted this recipe before. I make fish tacos ALL the time. It's a go-to recipe because we usually have everything on hand.  I searched my blog and can't find a post on it. Maybe I am mistaken, so sorry if this has been posted before. This is an incredibly basic and easy recipe. I don't know exact amounts because I just wing it every time, but here is a general recipe. Just go with it! I promise, you'll love it!

Fish Tacos
Serves 2
2-3 frozen tilapia filets
Cajun seasoning
olive oil
1 fresh jalapeno sliced or chopped
shredded coleslaw or purple cabbage (or lettuce)
shredded Mexican blend cheese
lime wedges
Thaw tilapia according to package if frozen. Sprinkle each side with Cajun seasoning. Pan fry for a few minutes on each side in a pan with olive oil. Cut into small pieces.
Combine a cup of coleslaw, chopped cilantro, and chopped jalapenos in a bowl. Sprinkle with paprika and salt.  
Fill tortilla with fish, cole slaw mix, cheese, chopped tomatoes, and squeeze a lime on top.
Also great with ranch or sriracha sauce.

My bf LOVES fish tacos, I haven't come across any that I can share the same sentiment. I plan on making this for him for some brownie points. Thanks for the easy recipe. Looking forward to trying fish tacos again :)
