It’s summertime – time for refreshing food with flavor, flavor, flavor. You have the kick from the blackening seasoning, the creamy coleslaw, and then the refreshing mango and watermelon fresh salsa. I used the corn tortillas for more texture. I hope you like them.
1 1/2 pound favorite fish (I used both tuna and tilapia, and I got mine at Crosby’s Crabs)
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
