We just discovered and started using Salt For Life and will continue to use it. There have been many times when I have had to leave the salt out of my recipes entirely due to the sodium being way to high. I have a roommate that needs to stick to a low sodium diet so I was excited when I discovered Salt For Life. Now we can add the flavor without the health risk. 75% less sodium is HUGE.

This Blackened Fish Taco with Avocado-Cilantro Sauce is a crowd pleaser for a build-your-own taco bar. The blackened tilapia seasoned with fresh spices including Salt for Life Sea Salt + Potassium Blend wakes up your taste buds while the slaw and avocado-cilantro sauce toppings burst with flavor.

2. Combine all the avocado-cilantro sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse until well combined.
3. Combine all the slaw ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
4. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Once heated, add in the tilapia (a few at a time if you can’t fit them all at once). Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the outside is blackened and the fish flakes apart easily.

5. Remove the fish from the heat, and if desired, warm the corn tortillas in the same skillet over medium heat, cooking for about 30 seconds on each side.
6. Break up the tilapia into 2-3” pieces. Stack the tortillas in twos. Distribute the fish evenly between the 6 sets of tortillas, and top with slaw, avocado-cilantro sauce and sprinkle on some Salt for Life Sea Salt + Potassium Blend to taste.

This recipe turned out so delicious. I had only had fish tacos like once or twice at a restaurant before this. I really, really love these. They are sooooo tasty and full of flavor. Salt For Life makes them even better because I know the sodium is 75% less.
