Any firm white fish like tilapia, cod or mahi mahi works. Fish is a source of lean protein and healthy Omega-3 fats. When cooked properly (quickly), fish retains its moisture. And when seasoned lightly, it is delicious! It took only 3 – 4 minutes per side to cook my fish to perfection. It came out juicy and flaked with a touch of a fork. Meaning it was soft and not overcooked.

Perfect for any time: summer BBQs, winter weeknight dinners or a leftover lunch – just keep the ingredients separately. Enjoy!

  1. Delicious!!! I used grilled halibut and flour street taco-sized tortillas. My husband grows, dehydrates, & grinds his own hot pepper powder, so in addition to the chili powder I added a few shakes of his powder to the marinade as well for a little extra kick (it doesn’t add flavor, just heat). We didn’t garnish the tacos with anything but the strawberry mango salsa (no extra lime, cilantro or hot sauce). My husband loved these!!! I loved these!!! This is another ifoodreal keeper! The left over salsa was gobbled up with tortilla chips.

    1. Yay. Super glad to hear! Is your husband Italian? Our friends grow their pepperroncinos and then make like this spicy thick sauce. Yum.

      1. No, he’s not Italian…he just learned to love heat from his co-workers who used to pour hot sauce on everything. He didn’t like how hot sauce alters the flavor of food, so he started experimenting with growing hot peppers in our greenhouse. Last summer he grew 21 different varieties for his pepper powder blend. He has 19 varieties started this year. All of his co-workers (as well as family and friends) rave about his powder because it’s like ordering “stars” at a Thai restaurant – you can shake on as little or much as you want.

  4. I love fish!! I also don’t get it when people say they don’t like fish, it is so good and good for you, how can you not like it?! The store just had a huge sale on tilapia and I bought a bunch of it and I’ve been looking for tasty recipes to cook with it. I love fish tacos and I love your fish marinade, so this recipe is definitely on my to-cook list! I can’t wait to try these 🙂

    1. Hope you like it, Isadora!:) Exactly. I honestly can’t even name any food I don’t like, period. I think some foods like fennel I didn’t give a good chance to love but I don’t hate it. Same with asparagus. But the problem with fish is what I described – it hasn’t been given a chance by many people.

      1. Just made It! It is sooooo good! My daughter found this recipe, and I couldn’t stop saying “thank you” to you! I made just one adjustment: I used 1/2 of jalapeno pepper in salsa, but only because of my daughter, otherwise I’d use the full amount: I like it spicy! Thank you!
