We love fish tacos and often order them when dining out.  However this summer we wanted a go-to recipe for making them at home. After quite a bit of searching, we found this recipe from Regal Springs. It tops our must-make list because it pairs fiery hot blackened Tilapia with creamy guacamole and cool mango salsa.  The combination of flavors is pure magic!


Blackened Fish Tacos Recipes

Serves 4


  • 4 Regal Springs Tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Drizzle of canola oil
  • Corn tortillas
  • Guacamole
  • Mango Salsa (we like the one sold at Costco)
  • Cotija cheese


  1. Make blackening seasoning by combining chili powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cumin and salt.
  2. Coat both sides of each tilapia fillet with blackening seasoning.
  3. Into a pan over medium-high heat, heat the canola oil. Add tilapia fillets and cook on each side until cooked through, about 3–4 minutes.
  4. Slice each fillet into strips.
  5. Layer tilapia onto warmed tortillas. Top with guacamole, salsa and cheese.
  6. Chef’s Suggestion: For a fresh twist on fish tacos, try a salsa of chopped fresh mango, jalapeño, tomato, red onion and cilantro, seasoned with a pinch of salt and squeeze of fresh lime juice.
