Mandarin Orange Salsa Ingredients:

  • 1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained and halved (or you can substitute fresh mandarin oranges)
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped red bell peppers
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped red onion
  • 1/2 Tbsp. finely diced, seeded jalapeño
  • dash of salt

Taco Ingredients:

  • 2 (6 oz) tilapia filets
  • 2 tsp. blackening powder (or favorite rub)
  • 4 small flour tortillas
  • 1 handful mixed salad greens
  • 1 lime, quartered


  1. To prepare the salsa, gently toss the 5 salsa ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle fish evenly on both sides with seasoning. Broil 6 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. (You could also grill the fish, or cook it in a skillet.)
  3. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. Add the tortillas to pan, 1 at a time; cook 1 minute on each side or until lightly toasted. Top each taco with 1/4 cup greens, 1/4 cup salsa, and 1 piece of tilapia. (Feel free to break the tilapia into smaller piece like I did.) Sprinkle with a little lime juice, and serve immediately with lime wedges.


Here are some other possible seasoning mixes for the fish:

  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice (sprinkle on fish first), 2 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 tsp. cumin, pinch of salt
