Tangy tacos the whole family will love.


2 medium Orange (juiced)
1/2 fruit Lime
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Salt
2 fillet Tilapia (cut into 1-inch chunks)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (for cooking)
6 large leaf Lettuce, butterhead (Boston) (or taco shells)
1/2 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (diced)
1/2 medium Red onion (diced)
1/2 mango Mango (diced)
1/2 avocado(s) Avocado (sliced)


  1. Mix the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, cumin, and salt in a bowl and combine well. 
  2. Gently place the pieces of Tilapia into a large Ziploc bag and pour in the juice. Marinate for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator, flipping the bag over about halfway through.
  3. Next, heat the olive oil over a large skillet. When the pan is warm, add the Tilapia and cook for about 4-5 minutes on 1 side, then turning only once, finish cooking on the other side (about 8-9 minutes total) or until it's cooked through to an internal temperature of 165F or 74C degrees.
  4. Then, simply prepare your tacos to your liking using lettuce or soft/hard taco shells, add the fish, red pepper, onion, mango, and avocado.
