(2) Spicy Grilled Taco Night with @poeticpinup
Ingredients:
Instructions:
  1. Combine olive oil and spices in a small bowl; stir well
  2. Brush oil mixture evenly over tilapia fillets
  3. Heat a large nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat (Grease with cooking spray)
  4. Grill fish 4 minutes per side until it flakes easily with a fork
  5. Stuff your spicy fish into your Blue Corn Taco Shells and top with lettuce and cheese
  6. Mix corn with cut up tomatoes as a delicious side you can also add to the top of your tacos

 

Grilling Tip: “The best advice I can offer for grilling tilapia is to use a silicone grill mat. All the grill flavor, none of soul-crushing torment that is trying to pry a stubborn filet from a surface it wants to bond with for all the eternities.
