  • Light up your charcoal chimney and prep everything else while that's preheating

  • Season your tilapia fillets with your seasoning of choice 
  • Slice your lemons, limes, and oranges into rings (these will act as a heat deflector)
  • Slice 1 Jalapeno into rings for toppings
  • Prepare the avocado cream sauce by combining 16 oz sour cream with 2 avocados and the juice and zest of 1 lime
  • Add your charcoal to the grill and arrange your citrus rings so they cover the top rack

  • Allow the fish to come up to 145*F internal temp or until it flakes away nicely 
  • Char your tortillas and build your tacos
