As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
- 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.
- In another bowl, combine the diced avocados and strawberries; gently toss with the remaining lime juice.
- 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).
- 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.
