Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, but here in Texas we know this is not the time to put away the grill just yet. This recipe for light and easy Grilled Tilapia tacos works well with a variety of marinades and sauces and is a great way to break out of your burger rut. What’s more, Seafood Watch names Tilapia as one of the most sustainable fish around. Serve it on 100% plant-based Repurpose tableware to give summer an earth-friendly send-off.
