Grilled Fish Tacos

By The Gourmet Farm Girl
This whole meal can be prepared on the grill. It is a healthy alternative to fried fish tacos.
 Grilling fish on an open grill can be tricky, place on foil to cook if you prefer to keep the fish from falling apart. 

Cod works well with this recipe because of its dense texture and thickness 
This recipe feeds two people, double or triple if feeding more…

2-3 cod fillets
2-3 teaspoons taco seasoning
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Red onion
Avocados
Sour cream
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped lettuce
Sliced tomatoes
Fresh salsa or jar salsa
Flour tortilla shells
Extra virgin olive oil

Prep the vegtables ahead of time, chop, dice or slice to your liking…

Heat the grill to 400-425 degrees

Season the cod fillet on both sides with the taco seasoning and cumin; drizzle with olive oil

 Brush tortilla shells with a light coating of olive oil or spray lightly with vegetable oil

Coat the grill top with vegetable oil (an old dish towel soaked with oil works well for this)

Place the fish oil side down on the grill and close the lid; let fish cook for 10-12 minutes; when ready to flip the fish make sure it is cooked almost through and moves when gently touched

If it is sticking to the grill; close the lid and let cook a few more minutes, flip with a large metal spatula and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes till the fillets are opaque and flakey.

Remove from heat and tent in aluminum foil; at this time place your shells on the grill and heat till light brown on both sides 1-2 minutes

Remove and tent the shells in aluminum foil

When ready to serve place the lettuce on bottom of the shell, lay the cod on top and create the rest of your taco to your liking …ENJOY!
