Mix orange and lime juices, 2 Tbsp olive oil, cumin, and salt in bowl. Add tilapia chunks. Nestle tilapia chunks into the marinade. Marinate in refrigerator for 4-6 hours, turning once (be gentle).
When ready to eat, heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat. When pan and oil are hot, add fish chunks. Gently nudge them around until they are in a single layer in your skillet (not all piled up in the middle). When in a single layer, pour remaining marinade over the fish. Let simmer, turning only once, until cooked through — approximately 8-10 minutes total cooking time. Note: If you turn the fish more than once the fish chunks will break up into small pieces.
To serve: If you are good at taking leaves off a head of cabbage, you may only need 4 leaves to make 4 large taco wraps. If you shred the heck out of your leaves when you try to take them off the head (like happens to me), layer 2 green cabbage leaves on top of each another to make one large taco wrap.
For each taco wrap, place ¼ of the fish chunks on the cabbage. Top with diced onion and avocado slices. Finish each wrap with a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of kosher flake salt and chopped cilantro (if desired).
- Juice of 1 large orange or 2 small oranges
- Juice of ½ lime (reserve the other half of the lime for serving)
- 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 4 tilapia fillets, cut into large chunks
- 4-8 large green cabbage leaves (use 8 if you want to double up the leaves)
- ½ red onion, diced
- 1 avocado, sliced
- optional - salt and cilantro to taste
