Directions

  1. PREHEAT barbecue to high. Wrap tortillas in foil. In a small bowl, mix sour cream, cilantro, 1 tbsp (15 mL) grilling sauce and 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice.

  2. SEASON tilapia with salt and pepper on a plate, then brush with remaining grilling sauce to coat evenly. Grill tilapia with barbecue lid closed, turning once after 3 to 4 min. set tortillas on upper rack of grill to warm through. Continue grilling tilapia until done, 2 to 3 min. more. Transfer to a platter. Remove tortillas from grill.

  3. FLAKE fish gently with a fork, drizzle with remaining lime juice and arrange on a platter with cabbage, avocados, cilantro cream and tortillas. Garnish with cilantro leaves.

  4. NO BBQ? Preheat oven to 450 °F (230 °C). Set wrapped tortillas on top rack to warm through, 2 to 3 min. Season tilapia with salt and pepper, and brush with remaining grilling sauce. Place fillets on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, 7 to 8 min.

Tip

Since tilapia is a delicate fish, the grill should be hot and well oiled. Flip only once using a metal spatula.
