Blackened Tilapia Tacos

Yesterday was good crock pot weather, so I made my slow cooker Asian pulled pork tacos. They were great. I saw some nice tilapia filets at Costco yesterday. If Taco Tuesday is your thing, give this a go:
Blackened Tilapia Tacos
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, ribs removed and finely chopped
1 cup thinly sliced white onion
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
1 tablespoon canola oil
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1/2 ripe peeled avocado, thinly sliced
4 lime wedges
Topping ideas
Sliced radish
Diced tomato
Shredded cabbage
Coarse sea salt
Combine first 4 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Combine jalapeño sauce and onion in a small bowl.
Combine paprika and next 6 ingredients (through ground red pepper); sprinkle evenly over fish. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
Warm tortillas over a gas flame or in a skillet. Divide fish, onion mixture, and avocado evenly among tortillas. Serve with lime wedges.
