Fish Tacos With Xawaash

FOR THE FISH:

  • 1.5 lbs tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoons of Xawaash spice (depends on spice preference)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 12 corn tortillas

FOR THE SLAW:

  • ½ red cabbage, sliced thin
  • ¼ green cabbage, sliced thin
  • ½ medium-sized onion, diced
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime

FOR THE AVOCADO-CILANTRO SAUCE:

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and skinned
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped and seeded
  • Salt, to taste

 

Season the Talipa with the Xawaash spice on both side
Combine all of the Avocado-Cilantro Sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse until well-combined.
Combine all of the Slaw ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Once heated, add in the tilapia (a few at a time if you can’t fit them all at once). Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the outside is blackened and the fish flakes apart easily.
Remove the fish from the heat, and if desired, warm the corn tortillas in the same skillet over medium heat, cooking for about 30 seconds on each side.
Break up the tilapia into 2-3″ pieces. Stack the tortillas in twos. Distribute the fish evenly between the 6 sets of tortillas, and top with Slaw and Avocado-Cilantro Sauce. Serve.
