Ingredients

Serves: 6
cup  thinly sliced red onion
1/4  cup  lime juice
1/2  tsp.  salt, plus additional to taste
cup  diced ripe, Fresh California Avocado
cup  diced fresh Naturipe® Strawberries
Tbsp.  vegetable oil
  pieces tilapia filets
  flour tortillas, regular or whole wheat
Tbsp.  minced jalapeño
Tbsp.  crema (or sour cream, thinned)

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. To make pickled red onions: in a bowl, combine the red onions with half of the lime juice and salt; stir and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  2. In another bowl, combine the diced avocados and strawberries; gently toss with the remaining lime juice.
  3. Season the fish with salt if desired. Heat the vegetable oil in a large sauté pan until nearly smoking; sear the fish on both sides until golden brown and cooked through (about 2-3 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the fish).
  4. Lay the tortillas flat and top each with 1 Tbsp. crema, 1 cooked tilapia filet, ½ Tbsp. jalapeño and 1 Tbsp. pickled red onions. Divide strawberry-avocado mixture evenly among the tacos and serve immediately.

Serving suggestion:  The strawberry and avocado-topped tilapia is also delicious as an entrée without the tortillas. Serve with a side salad, lentils or black beans.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
