Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time20 mins


  • 1 jalapeno thinly sliced
  • 1/2 white onion finely diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Juice from 1 lime or lemon
  • 1 pound tilapia or cod cut into chunks
  • Salt and Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Corn or flour tortillas warmed (or in my case, lightly charred)
  • To taste chopped cilantro
  • To taste finely diced onion
  • To taste diced tomatos
  • To taste hot sauce
  • To taste lime wedges


  • Combine the jalapeno, onion, cilantro, oil and lime juice. Toss with the tilapia. Heat a bit of oil in a pan over medium high heat, and pan-fry fish chunks until cooked, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve fish on warmed tortillas with your choice of garnishes.


I used lemons instead of the recipe's calling for limes, because I'm bad at writing grocery lists, and I loved the lemon! I also loved charring the corn tortillas a bit over an open flame.
