AIMEE FORTNEY'S EASY SKILLET FISH TACOS
Place tilapia and seasoning in a bowl, cover and set aside or even refrigerate ahead of time. Heat a cast iron skillet or pan, then add olive oil. Cook shallot in olive oil, then push to the sides.
Just before cooking fish, add lime juice and mix with the fish, then add to the skillet and cook. (If you add the lime juice too soon, you will have ceviche.) As the fish cooks, use your spatula to break it apart; this is almost like shredding it.
It only takes about five minutes to cook the fish. Crisp your tortilla, then add cilantro lime cream sauce (recipe below), and then top with avocado and tomato, if desired.
