Tilapia with Avocado Sauce

Once in awhile I divert from a recipe so much that it actually isn't even like the original in any way. Sometimes it turns out to be a mess (thankfully not too often) and sometimes it turns out to be a favorite. This is one of those occasions when the hubby and I each commented on how much we loved this. Of  course, we both love seafood, so I guess you could throw just about anything on top of it and we would like it. But seriously, this was easy to make and mostly healthy and it really tasted great!

4 pieces Tilapia (or any kind of your favorite fish)
Old Bay Seasoning 
Salt/Pepper (to taste)
2 avocados, (leave 1 whole for the sauce and dice one into bite sized chunks for garnishing the cooked fish)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped (leave the seeds in for the heat) (reserve a few pieces to garnish the cooked fish)
1 garlic clove, chopped
3 cinnamon basil leaves ( you can use regular basil, I just happen to grow  this in my garden)
1 Tbsp Italian flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro

Season your fish with Old Bay Seasoning to your liking. You can also add salt and pepper if you desire.
In a food processor, blend together: 1 whole avocado, 1/2 cup milk, sour cream, chopped jalapeno, chopped garlic, cinnamon basil leaves, Italian parsley, green onions and  chopped cilantro until smooth. Set aside.
In a skillet, cook the seasoned fish until it is cooked through. This process only takes a few minutes for Tilapia as it is so thin. Pour some sauce out onto your serving dish and place the fish on top of it. Drizzle more sauce on the top  of the fish and garnish with chopped jalapenos and chopped avocado.
