Taqueria Black Peppercorn Tilapia

You can make Taqueria Del Sol’s Black Peppercorn Tilapia, Jalapeno Mac and Cheese, and Marinated Artichokes at home with these great recipes.  This is a great flavor combination of creamy mac and cheese, heat from the peppercorn fish balanced out by the tartness of the artichokes and capers. This dinner is easy to make and you’ll be glad you tried it.   TIP: Try their margaritas when you go!

Black Peppercorn Tilapia

tilapia filets
whole black peppercorns, cracked
ground black pepper
olive oil

1. Spread filets with olive oil, add salt and peppers to one side only of fish.  Saute in a little butter.  Cook for 4 minutes on each side, a little more on thicker parts.
2. Serve on top of Jalapeno Mac and Cheese with marinated artichokes and capers on the side.

Marinated Artichokes

1 can artichoke hears, halved or quartered

2 bay leaves

2 tablespoons oregano

2 1/2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/4 cup + 2 T olive oil

1/3 cup capers, or more to taste

**can add some chopped jalapenos for heat.  I omitted.

Mix all ingredients in a glass container and marinate for 1-2 hours.  Serve alongside the Black Peppercorn Tilapia and Jalapeno Mac and Cheese.

  1. Costco sells big, meaty fillets of tilapia. This would be a perfect use for them!

    • Kristi,
      That’s a great idea! I’ve never bought them at Costco but I’ll have to check them out next time I go. That would be perfect for a family and tilapia is really inexpensive.
