Ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 clove garlic, minced
2 pounds tilapia fillets (about 6)
Salt and pepper
16 soft corn tortillas

Preparation

1. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, lime juice, soy sauce, chili powder, cumin and garlic. Season fish on all sides with salt and pepper and place in a dish large enough to hold in a single layer. Pour marinade over fish, cover and refrigerate for 15 to 20 minutes.

2. Preheat gas grill to medium, or preheat broiler to high and set rack 6 inches from source of heat. Remove fish from marinade and grill or broil until flaky, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes, then cut into chunks. Season with salt, pepper and additional lime juice, if desired.

3. Warm tortillas as package label directs. Serve tilapia with tortillas.
