  • Print
  • Serves: 4-6
  • Ingredients
  • For Fajitas
  • 1½ Tbsp paprika
  • 1½ tsp pepper
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp oregano
  • 1½ tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1½ lbs tilapia, cut into large pieces
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • olive oil
  • For serving:
  • small tortillas
  • lime wedges
  • cilantro
  • grated cheddar or cotija


    Instructions In a small bowl, combine paprika, pepper, salt, oregano, sugar, garlic powder, and cayenne. Place fish in a large bowl, or zip-top bag, and add seasoning mixture. Stir or shake to coat well. In a large pan, heat a small drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and peppers, and cook 5-7 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove onion and peppers from pan and set aside. Add another drizzle of olive oil and add about ⅓ of the fish. Cook 2-3 minutes per side, remove from pan and repeat with the remaining fish. (Don’t crowd the pan, this will help it to get slightly crispy on the outside and will prevent the fish from steaming). To serve, add a few pieces of fish, peppers, and onions to each tortilla. Add a little lime juice and garnish with cilantro and cheese.
