Blackened Tilapia Baja Tacos Recipe @pinch

If you like fish tacos with a little kick you will love these! The blackened seasoning on the tilapia is great. But the sour cream/jalapeno sauce on top is fabulous and makes the taco. The sour cream is what holds the fresh sauce together. Even if you're not a fan of fish, we suggest trying these fish tacos. The tilapia has a very mild flavor. Delish! A healthier fish taco using blackened rather than using fried fish!
