Tilapia Tacos With Mango Salsa

Share Button

Tilapia-1-3A corn tortilla is the perfect vehicle for just about anything. Steak, chicken, pork, shrimp, fish. The possibilities are endless! I decided to try my hand with some tilapia tacos with a fresh mango salsa. 

The beauty of the taco is that there is no right or wrong way to make them! You can add pickled slaw, salsa, onions and cilantro, cheese, whatever tickles your fancy that day. Anytime I’m cooking fish I like to keep the ingredients simple and fresh, that’s why this mango salsa works so perfectly. I added Fusion Habanero to the salsa to give it a little heat and additional color, and I seasoned the fish with Fusion Chile Verde for a more subtle spicy flavor.
