Cooking Instructions:

Use a NON STICK sauté pan that is oven safe and over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil until hot. Sauté the garlic, onions, and peppers until they are soft and fragrant.

Reduce the heat to medium low and add the Tilapia to the pan. Sprinkle the fish with the paprika and salt & pepper! Carefully flip the fish over after 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid while the second side cooks for another 3-4 minutes.

While fish is cooking prepare taco toppings! Turn oven broiler on and display tortillas on a cookie sheet. Put cookie sheet in oven to warm/toast the tortillas prior to filling the tacos! (About 2 minutes)

Flake fish apart with a fork. Assemble your tacos: start with a warm tortilla on your plate, add some fish, the sautéed onions and peppers, cabbage, avocado, mango, tomatoes, and garnish with fresh cilantro. Add hot sauce as needed. ENJOY!
