For the fish:

  • 1 lb tilapia filets (or any other white fish)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 Tbsp blackening seasoning
  • olive or avocado oil

For the salsa:

  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 lime

For serving:

  • 8 corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cotija cheese
  • lime wedges


  1. Prepare salsa by mixing onion, pineapple, jalapeno, cilantro, and lime.

  2. Heat grill or skillet to medium-high heat. Squeeze lime over fish filets and sprinkle evenly with blackening seasoning. Brush or spray with oil.

  3. Grill fish on foil or a grill mat (optional) for 8-10 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.

  4. While fish is cooking, heat tortillas.

  5. When fish is done, use a fork to flake into 1-inch pieces. Serve with tortillas, cotija, lime wedges, and pineapple salsa.
