Cilantro Lime Tilapia Tacos, Guac & Spicy Corn

Law School Orientation Day 1 down, 3 more years to go. For me? Oh heck no. For Brandon? Yes, please.

Girlfriend of the Week award -- I WIN! Awarding myself Girlfriend of the Year would be pushing it because 1)it hasn't been that long and 2) that's just outrageously cocky.

I made dinner allllll byyyyy myyyyyyselllllllfff. Brett's puppy, Hunley, helped too--by licking up everything I dropped on the floor. If you know me, you know how clumsy I am, and this is a lot.

In a bowl I mixed the following ingredients for the tilapia marinade:
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lime juice, plus zest
2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp pineapple juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
salt & pepper

I put the tilapia & marinade in a ziploc bag and marinated it for almost an hour while I prepared guacamole (omg again, I know) and corn on the cob...that I sliced off the um, corn.

In a small bowl, I melted a pat of butter, then added a bit of lime juice, chopped cilantro, and cayenne pepper to drizzle over the corn.

I broiled the fish for about 10 minutes, turning once halfway through.

We placed the tilapia on top of warm corn tortillas, added guac, the pineapple/cabbage slaw from last night's dinner, and Greek yogurt. Can you tell whose plate is whose?

This was definitely a corn overload. Hello Potassium, Vitamin C and Fiber!
