Spicy Fish Tacos with Avocado Yogurt Sauce
3 tbsp fresh lime juice, divided
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp salt, divided
1 lb fresh tilapia fillets (catfish will also work well in this recipe)
1 large ripe avocado, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup water
12 small corn tortillas
Diced red onions
In a small bowl, combine 2 tbsp lime juice, 2 tbsp olive oil, chili powder, cumin, paprika and 1/2 tsp salt, and stir until smooth.
Pat the fish dry with paper towels, then place in a ziplock bag. Pour in the lime-chili marinade and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
While the fish marinates, combine the avocado, yogurt, remaining lime juice, cilantro, remaining salt, and water in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.
Saute the fish in the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook 4-5 minutes per side, then remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
While cooking the fish, warm the tortillas one at a time in a skillet over medium heat for 20-30 seconds per side, or until soft and flexible. Wrap the finished tortillas in a clean dishcloth to keep warm between batches.
Once the fish is cooked, remove from the pan and, using a fork, break up each filet into bite-sized chunks.
To assemble, drizzle each tortillas with the avocado-yogurt sauce. Divide the fish evenly between the tortillas, then serve with whichever toppings you choose.

I love fish tacos!
I want some of these right now.
I hate working in retail!! People suck! Why do people think that I want to hear their life story? I really don’t give a shit! I just want to go home and have a beer.
