Tilapia Tacos

Last night I made fish tacos with tilapia. See, I made tilapia the other night for the first time and now I am hooked. I cooked the fish filets in a grill pan (since I live in a townhouse I don't have a real grill). But, you could use a real grill or fry or pan sear them. I topped the tacos with a homemade remoulade sauce.

For the tacos:
This recipe is for 2 servings. Take two tilapia filets, about 1 lb. total. Season with salt and pepper. Place on a preheated grill pan over medium-high heat. Grease the pan with some PAM cooking spray beforehand. Grill the filets on each side for about 3-4 minutes per side. Serve in a flour tortilla, top with remoulade sauce, shredded monterey jack cheese, lettuce and tomato. Tip: heat the tortillas in the microwave, covered in paper towels, for 45 seconds to soften.

For the remoulade sauce:
mayonaise
ketchup
cayenne pepper
horseradish sauce
salt and pepper

In a bowl, mix 2 parts mayonaise with 1 part ketchup. Add horseradish and cayenne pepper to your tasting. Season with salt and pepper.
