I have been craving fish tacos for weeks.  Not fried fish tacos, but the moist, fall apart in your mouth, grilled kind.  Normally I’d get them from a great local restaurant.  But since we’re now enforcing a budget, going out for tacos wasn’t on the table.

A freezer clean-out last week revealed two gallon bags of white fish  (I think it’s tilapia).  I vaguely remember buying it from Costco after Baby Spork was born (so it’s not too old).  And then serendipitously, my favorite Pampered Chef rep sent out her monthly email which happened to contain a recipe for grilled fish tacos.

They were amazing.  (Seriously. I may have eaten four of them.)

Want to make yourself some tasty fish tacos?  The original recipe is linked above.  My version is below.

Grilled Fish Tacos

Ingredients:

  • 3-6 tomatoes (depending on size), diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • cilantro, to taste, bruised
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 3-4 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 6 white fish fillets
  • Sliced cabbage
  • 6″ flour tortillas

Directions:

Sprinkle fish with black pepper and grill until flaky.   (I used a grill pan with a bit of grapeseed oil.)

Mix tomato, garlic, onion, and cilantro in a bowl.  In another bowl, mix mayo, milk, cumin, and lime juice.  Pour liquid mix into the tomato mix and stir.

Serve fish on tortillas topped with sauce and cabbage.

Makes approximately 8 tacos.
