Blackened Crispy Tilapia Taco Recipe!

A while back if you guys remember, I had made Mustard Tilapia Curry (Recipe Here). I had purchased a jumbo bag of Tilapia and since my last post I haven't had the chance to play with it. I love trying out food from different ethnic backgrounds and at the same time I like being creative by giving dishes my own personal touch of flavors. I had to get rid of tilapia from my freezer and therefore I decided to make an easy Blackened Crispy Tilapia Taco. Just a FYI, you can use any fish (boneless) and replace chapati in place of tortillas. Here you go guys, this seriously is one of the most delicious recipe I have ever created and this was my first try :) Also, if you like watching instead of reading then please watch the video posted below :D

 Good Luck *-:)
