Cajun Fish Tacos

Cajun Fish Tacos

**Serves 2, or makes about 6 tacos**

2 tilapia filets, about 1/4 pound each
small tortillas (I used a corn/wheat mix tortilla brand)
Cajun seasoning mix
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1 shallot, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
hot sauce – I used smoked chipotle Tabasco)
garnishes:  corn, green onion, sour cream, chopped cabbage or coleslaw

Marinate the fish filets in the seasoning mix in the fridge for about an hour.

In a heated skillet sprayed with olive oil, cook the garlic and shallot for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.

Add these to the sour cream, along with the hot sauce (to taste).  Mix well and set aside.

In the same skillet, cook the fish for about 3 minutes on each side.  Before flipping them, add the lemon juice to the pan.

When done, cut the fit to the desired size for the tacos.  Add everything to the tortillas, and add more lemon juice before eating.

*These tacos are best with something crunchy in them, like chopped cabbage/coleslaw (which I did not do but will for the next time I make these).
