Grilled Fish Tacos

fish & corn & peppers

flaky white fish slightly blackened because brown food tastes good, and it’s fun to grill things. pile your tacos with crunchy slaw, grilled summer corn, and everything else that will render this dish wildly inauthentic but incredibly tasty

serves about 4, depending on how good of a taco engineer you are

for the fish

16 oz white fish –do some research if you are concerned about sustainable fishing standards. i used alaskan farmed cod here and it was lovely

2 tsp. olive oil

2 tsp. each garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika

1 tsp. each cumin, salt

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

small tortillas for serving

cut the fish into medium sized chunks, envision 2-3 pieces per taco

toss the pieces of fish in olive oil and seasonings, briefly marinating on the counter while you pre-heat your grill or grill pan to medium high

grill the fish for about 3 minutes per side or until slightly blackened on the outside and flaky on the inside. serve on warmed corn or flour tortillas– or the weird whole-wheat “carb conscious” tortillas i used because i had a momentary lapse of judgement at Trader Joe’s

for the corn & peppers

toss the veggies in a little oil and salt, then grill on high until slightly charred on the outside and softened on the inside

2 ears of fresh white or yellow corn

1 small sweet onion, cut into wedges

2-3 jalapenos, cut into halves or quarters lengthwise **if you don’t like as much spice, use poblano peppers or bell peppers here

drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt

for the slaw

mix the following ingredients together and let chill in the fridge while you prepare the rest of your components

2 cups shredded cabbage or slaw mix

1 jalapeno, minced

3 green onions, finely chopped

1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream

1/4 cup lime juice

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
