Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango and Avocado Salsa Recipe
Wednesday. 1.17.07 11:20 am


This recipe serves: 6
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes


For the mango-avocado salsa:
1 1/2 avocados
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1 1/2 cups diced mango
1/3 cup diced red pepper
1/3 cup chopped scallions

For the fish:
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 fish fillets, such as sea bass, red snapper or salmon, about 8 ounces each
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

For the tacos:
12 corn tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
3 plum tomatoes, diced
lime wedges, for garnish

Cooking Instructions

For the mango-avocado salsa:
1. Remove and discard the pit and skin from the avocados and rub the flesh of the avocado with some of the lime juice to prevent it from discoloring.
2. Chop the avocado and toss it with the remaining lime juice, mango, red pepper and scallions. (The salsa can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.)

For the fish:
3. Preheat the grill.
4. Brush the fillets with oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
5. Grill the fillets on both sides until just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. (Thin fillets take less time, thicker fillets take more.) Cool slightly and cut into 1-inch pieces.
6. Meanwhile, separate the tortillas into 2 stacks, wrap them in foil and warm them on the grill while the salmon is cooking.
7. Fill the tortillas with fish, lettuce, tomatoes and mango-avocado salsa. Serve 2 tacos per person with lime wedges on the side.

Haha, yeah. Sometimes that might happen too. Like when I was giving my senior thesis presentation. Though that was more like I needed to die than I needed to pee.

Ooh, and you're right: that recipe does sound good. I just may give it a try. (I looooooove cooking! Very therapeutic, sometimes, just being in the kitchen making something with your hands.)
