Fish Tacos

It's taken a few attempts to set a recipe that DH and I both like. It's not "traditional" but hopefully it'll give some of you a starting off point to find something that works for your family. :)

8 corn or flour tortillas
3 tilapia filets
baby spinach

For rub:
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika

For sauce:
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 teaspoon paprika
dash of ground red pepper
1 teaspoon lime juice

Mix together the rub ingredients in a small bowl. Rub the mixture on both sides of fish filets. From here you can pan fry in some olive oil, broil, or bake until cooked. I prefer to bake the fish at 425* on a foil lined baking sheet sprayed with olive oil for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway though (this method doesn't set off our very sensitive smoke alarms). Once cooked, break the fish into chunks.
Mix together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Warm the tortillas.
Serve fish in tortillas with a small amount of sauce and spinach.
