Grilled Fish Tacos

Prep Time: 20 minutes – Cook Time: 10 minutes – Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:grilledfishtacos

  • 1 pound white fish fillets (tilapia, catfish, flounder)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • 8 flour tortillas

Directions:

Preheat gas grill. In small bowl, mix lemon juice, olive oil, chili powder, cumin, salt & pepper.  Place fish in baking dish and pour lemon mixture on top.  Turn fish to coat both sides, cover, and chill for 15 minutes.  Stack tortillas and wrap in foil.

Cut 1 sheet of heavy-duty foil about 18″ long and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Place marinated fish on center of foil, wrap, and seal edges.  Make sure to leave space for heat circulation.  Reduce grill to medium and place fish packet on grill.  Cover grill and cook for 10 minutes.  After 5 minutes, turn fish and place tortilla packet on grill.  Fish is done when it flakes easily with fork and tortillas are done when warmed (approximately 5 minutes).  Let fish cool slightly and cut into bite-sized chunks.

Serve fish in warm tortillas with your favorite spicy coleslaw or pineapple-mango salsa.
