Some Grilled Fish Tacos

I love these things. Sometimes I smoke the fish but this time I decided to fire up the grill...


I made my chipotle slaw...
Mix 1/2 cup of mayo
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped (you can use more)
some chopped onion
salt to taste
a squeeze of lime juice
and 1 bag of pre-shredded cabbage
chill while grilling the fish






Made my pico de gallo...

onions

jalapenos

garlic

tomatoes

cilantro

lime juice and salt









I have a new toy... a Grill Grate... :) If you get the chance check them out at Big Poppa's site..
Big Poppa Smokers






Placed the fish on the grate...

The fish I used this time was swai... I've never tasted these before, but heard that they were fairly mild in flavor.





The Grill Grate comes with a special spatula that fits down into the grooves and lifts the food without breaking. (just what I need for fish fillets. :))



I olive oiled the fillets and seasoned them with lemon pepper ...




... heated the tortillas...




I had to taste some of the fish while the rest were grilling...
It wasn't half bad. A light flavor, white and flaky...






The grilled fish taco with chipotle slaw, pico and a squeeze of fresh lime.

It was tasty!!

I'm not a big fan of fish tacos, I think because I've not had a really good one, but yours sure look and sound delicious.

I love fish tacos.
I like to make mine with tilapia(mainly because it is so available and cheap) Your pico looks killer. I love the fresh taste of cilantro. I like to put avocados, mayo, salt, cumin, splash lime juice and a drizzle of olive oil in the blender then drizzle that over the taco sort of a sauce. YUM YUM.

Thanks Larry! I really like them.. didn't think I would when I first heard about them though.
Maybe if you try that chipotle slaw on top... it adds a nice kick.
Good luck with them.
