In a small bowl, combine olive oil, achiote seasoning, lime juice and salt. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag, add tilapia and marinate for one hour.

To make the dressing, combine sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and adobo sauce. Stir in lime juice and zest, cumin, chili powder and smoked paprika. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook tilapia about 4-6 minutes on each side, or until done. Let cool slightly, then slice into thin strips.
