OK, the more thorough version (derived form two different recipes, then simplified):
For 4 servings, combine 2T olive oil, 2T lime juice, 1/4 tsp salt, and ground black pepper in a ziplock and mix well. Put in 4 tilapia filets, remove as much air as possible and seal, and allow to marinate for 20 minutes (turn and flop around some to ensure all filets are coated).
Meanwhile, get toppings/fixins/wrappings ready:
Mix 1/2 cup greek yogurt (or thick strained homemade plain yogurt) with 2 Tbsp chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (the stuff out of a little can). Add salt to taste (You can make this ahead so flavors marry, even doubling it, keep in fridge.) (Original recipe recommend adding 2 Tbsp mayo as well - I skip that, keeps better and still tastes good to me).
1-1/2 cups shredded green cabbage
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves (or more if you like cilantro
Get out and warm 3 small flour tortillas per fillet (you can also skip the shredded cabbage and use a cabbage leaf as a wrap instead of the tortilla)
Heat a nonstick pan to medium/medium high and cook the tilapia until done (should only take a few minutes). Cool a few minutes, then flake the fish. Put a little sauce into the wrap of your choice, then add fish, then toppings. Eat. Enjoy!
This is my adaptation - my favorite way to eat tilapia. Easily messed around with to get it the way you like it.
