What To Do:

1. Make the Salsa: Roughly chop the mango and blueberry mixture and add to a medium mixing bowl. Stir in the cilantro and jalapeno and juice from the lime. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the chili powder, cumin and 1 teaspoon salt. Reserve 1 tablespoon.

3. Coat all sides of the fish with the remaining spice mix mixture.

4. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium non-stick sauté pan over moderately high heat. Add tilapia and cook, turning once, until just cooked through (about 8 minutes). Let fish rest 5 minutes. Break tilapia into pieces.

5. Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner or under a broiler until lightly charred on both sides.

To Serve: Lay tortillas flat and top each with tilapia pieces, mango blueberry salsa and finish with a sprinkle of the reserved spice mixture if you like for an extra flavor zing!

Pro Tip:

Make a taco bar even if its just for two people! Set the table and lay all the ingredients out on a large cutting board for you and your guest to make their own taco! Margarita bars are never a miss either!
