DSC09745Today you get the third installment in my Fish Taco recipe – the actual Fish Taco recipe.

Corn makes me feel lousy, so while I serve these to the kids and D on corn tortillas, I use Zenbelly’s Plantain Tortillas for myself. If you’ve found a non-grain tortilla sub that you love, please share it in the comments.

You may have slaw and dressing left over when all the tortillas and fish are gone. But they’re so versatile, so save them and find another fun use for them the next day.

I suggest grouper. You may use any firm, white-fleshed fish. I’ll use halibut sometimes if I can’t find grouper and I’m itching for a Fish Taco fix. But grouper is definitely my first choice.

The fish-prep I use in this recipe is inspired by this Grouper Taco from Charleston Magazine.

I hope you enjoy!

(My recipe plugin is misbehaving, so it’s not letting me link to the previous recipes. I’ve got a plea in to their support team, but until I remedy the situation, you can find the Red Cabbage & Cilantro Slaw here and the Avocado & Cilantro Dressing here.)

    I meant to add a note about mango to the blog post – about how that would be a fun addition. So I am glad that you mentioned it!

    I made the whole kit and caboodle last night…and it was a huge, huge hit. I could drink that avocado dressing with a straw {but won’t…but will use it on something else today, for certain!}. And even my littlest one – who maintains that “fish is not my favowit” – gave it a thumbs up. Delicious, Kristine. Thanks for getting me through a mid-week meal slump.

    I am so thrilled to hear this! And, from a Texan no less, it is high praise.

    That sauce … I know, right? I may or may not have used a finger to make sure none remained in the serving bowl.
