Expert Tips

You can use other dressings like French or thousand islands.

Fish and citrus fruits is a classic combination in Mexico. No one would ever think of eating fish tacos without a little lemon juice. Grapefruit is another citrus fruit that goes great with fish, especially if we’re talking about a colorful spicy salsa with red onion, fresh cilantro, serrano pepper and grapefruit. I paired it with these baked tilapia tacos for a fresh and delicious dinner!

Directions

  • 1 For the grapefruit salsa: Combine grapefruit, red onion, cilantro, Serrano chili and lemon juice in a medium bowl; season with salt. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.
  • 2 For the tacos: Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • 3 Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil.
  • 4 Season fish fillets with salt and pepper. Place them on baking tray and add Catalina dressing on both sides. Bake at 425° F for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and cut filets in half.
  • 5 Heat the tortillas in a comal or frying pan until they are soft. Add half a fillet to each tortilla and serve with grapefruit salsa. Garnish with lemon slices. Serve and enjoy!
