Fantastic Fish Tacos

Ingredients For Taco
Tilapia Fish - Not the breaded kind - Cook enough - I usually cook 2lbs
Corn tortillas - not the crunchy kind
Flour Tortillas
Cabbage - Use instead of lettuce - shredded
Mayo - 1/2 cup
Chipotle Tabasco Hot Sauce
Chile Powder
Garlic Powder

Ingredients for Pico De Gio
Chop all these ingredients by hand - makes for a better Pico than doing in a blender or chopper.
Roma Tomatoes - about 8 to 10 of them
Red Onion - bout 1/2 of it
Jalapeno - 3 of them deseeded
Banana Pepper - 1 deseeded
Cilantro - a good handful
Garlic - the kind in a jar or you can chop fresh.  I like it garlicky so I put a lot
Apple Cider Vinegar - about 1/4 cup
Salt and Pepper - to taste

Sprinkle Chile and garlic powder on top of tilapia and place on grill that has been lined with foil.  Be sure to spray foil with cooking spray 1st.  Cook till fish is done.  Don't over cook or else it will be hard to remove from the foil (yep I've done this).

Mix mayo and chipotle hot sauce together.  Mix enough hot sauce in until it turns almost a salmon color.  This will be somewhat thin.  Think I may try sour cream next go around.

Heat the flour and corn tortillas in a frying pan (I use cooking oil spray on them, but do what you like) and place in a tortilla warmer until you get the amount you want.    You will use two shells per taco.  The flour on the outside and then the corn one then spread some of the mayo sauce on top and then top with fish.  Add shredded cabbage then top with Pico.

Cheese is always an added plus.  I like Seriously Sharp Cheddar by Cabot.  

Well, I hope you enjoy!
