Blackened Tilapia Fish Taco Seasonings

Blackened Tilapia Fish Tacos

Basically all your going to need for this recipe is some shredded cabbage, tex mex cheese, sriracha mayo along with “Fresh Tilapia” and a few seasonings. 


  • I would not recommend using frozen fish for this recipe, you are looking for a few fresh fillets here.
  • The fresher the better, which will produce a moist and flaky fish taco.
  • This type of fish can also be served in burritos, tacos, and or over rice with beans.
  • You can also substitute the tilapia for another white fish such as halibut or cod.
  • Then simply season and saute in a cast iron skillet on medium heat till done. 

WHAT TO SERVE ON Blackened Tilapia Fish Tacos

  • Cabbage slaw with Sriracha Mayo ( recipe included in this recipe below)
  • Cabbage Pico De Gallo 
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Cheese
  • Avocados
  • Cilantro 
  • Lime

If you decide to make “pico de gallo” just make sure you make it a few hours ahead of time.

As it needs a little time to marinade to taste best. However because their is tomatoes in it, you will want to eat it the day of. 


Sriracha mayo, is just that. Sriracha sauce mixed with mayonnaise. You can either by the store bought variety or make it at home from scratch. If your making it from scratch be sure to use “Hellman’s mayonnaise” nothing else compares.
