    Chef Boggio's Note:

    OMG! I made these grilled tilapia fish tacos on the outside grill and topped them with adobo sauce, cabbage, avocado, tomatoes, cilantro & onion and roasted corn on the cobb. They were so omg yummy, not to mention they were quick and very easy to make. I made them for my family and friends over the weekend bbq party I had. I served them with pinto beans and paired the dish with blended margaritas. These tacos were so yummy and everyone loved them so much, I thought I'd share them with you.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb tilapia fillet (or any fish will do)


    Taco Toppings

    Adobo Sauce


    1. 1
      To make the Adobo Sauce, wisk together Sour Cream, Adobo sauce from a can of chipotle chiles, Seafood seasoning, Chili Powder, Cumin, Lime Juice, and Lime Zest. And refrigerator until ready to use.
    2. 2
      Then wisk together Canolia Oil, Ancho Chile Powder, chopped Cilantro, chopped Jalapeno and the juice of 1 Lime. Then marinade the fish in this mixture for at least 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile (while your fish is marinadeing), you can chop up the rest of your taco toppings.
    4. 4
      To grill the fish, I used a non-stick spray on aluminum foil or you can use another type of grill top if you have one (to prevent the fish from falling into the grill). You want to grill the fish for 4 minutes on one side, then turn it over and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat and let stand for about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      The corn tortillas I sprayed lightly with oil and placed on the grill for about 30 seconds and they come out perfect.
    6. 6
      Fill your tortillas with the grilled fish, top with shredded green cabbage, grilled corn, avocado, cilantro, onion, tomatoes, etc. and then top with the Adobo sauce. Eat and enjoy!

      I made this recipe according to the instructions with the exception that I didn't use onions as a topping (my 15-yr. old won't eat them) and I served the corn in the side. Oh, and I used Halibut. I tasted the cooked fish... It was very good. The sauce was delicious. My avocado was perfectly ripe. I liked all the toppings... But when I put it all together, it was just OK. Nothing fantastic, in fact, a little boring. My daughter said the same thing! I tried taking a bite of corn with a bite of taco, but it didn't make a huge difference. Does omitting the onions make that much difference? I'm back to the search for a fish taco recipe that I like!

      This was amazing. Def will do it again. Used fat free plain yogurt in the sauce and didn't have cilantro. Hope to have that again next time. Very flavorful and spicy, but cooling at the same time. Thank you for posting it!
