Fish Tacos

The other day, a friend of mine mentioned that she uses tilapia alot for fish tacos and I have been craving them ever since (it's only been 2 days, but a girl likes her fish tacos!). I looked at a few different recipes for the fish itself and the sauce online and just tried to incorporate what I loved about each.

Here's what I did:
The sauce: about 1 c. each of sour cream and mayo, splash of milk, juice of one lime, a couple of pinches dry cilantro, 2 or 3 green onions - green and white - thinly sliced, pinch of salt, pinch of cayenne pepper and a drop of tobasco...

Toppings: lots of shredded romaine, bottled salsa, quickly sauteed yellow pepper in a little cumin

Four tilapia fillets, salt and cayenne pepper, in a little olive oil and then crumbled up with a fork into big pieces

I heated flour tortillas in a dry skillet until nice and hot and filled it with all of the above

I skipped the chips and made a nice black bean and corn side with a little cayenne, cumin and salt - yum :)
