Grilled Fish Tacos

by kara on June 16, 2011

In my opinion, fish tacos=summer.   I cannot wait to eat them once the temperature starts heating up and the sun is shining.   They’re even better when served alongside margaritas or a Corona. This is our standby recipe for making fish tacos on the grill.   We had some grouper on hand and fired up the grill Sunday night. This was the first time we made them on our charcoal grill, and I have to admit I liked them better on our gas grill.  The charcoal flavor seemed to overpower the fish.   Perhaps we didn’t let the charcoal cook down long enough before cooking the fish.  Regardless, they still tasted like a summertime meal should. . .light and fresh.

Grilled Fish Tacos

6 (6 oz.) fish fillets (grouper or mahi mahi)

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

1/4 tsp. ground red pepper

corn tortillas, heated in the oven or microwave

salsa verde

chopped green onions

chopped tomatoes

chopped fresh cilantro

avocado slices (salted, peppered, and sprinkled with lime juice)

cotija or feta cheese

lime wedges

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.   Season fish fillets with olive oil,  salt,  and pepper.  Place fish fillets on grill rack. Grill  4-5 minutes on each side (until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork).  Season again to your liking and top with freshly squeezed lime.

Serve tacos with toppings of your choice.

I just made this for dinner and it was awesome! I’ve never made my own fish tacos before because I wasn’t sure I could pull it off, but this recipe was simple! I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out. Thanks Kara!
