Grilled Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Sauce

April 30, 2018

Grilled Fish Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Sauce

Serves 6-8

Cilantro-lime sauce:
1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 pounds cod fillets

Corn tortillas, warmed, for serving

2 cups shredded cabbage, for serving

Lime wedges, for serving


In a blender or food processor, blend the cilantro and lime juice until the cilantro is finely chopped. Add the mayonnaise and sour cream and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Make the fish:

In a shallow baking dish, whisk together the vegetable oil, lime juice, garlic powder, cumin, and chili power. Pat the fish dry, then place it in the baking dish. Turn the fish in the marinade until coated. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Heat an outdoor grill over medium-high heat until hot. Use tongs to dip a paper towel in oil, then brush on the grate. Place the fish on the grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until flaky. Use a large metal spatula to remove from the grill to a serving dish. Use a fork to gently break up the fish into chunks.

To serve, each person takes a warm corn tortilla and fills it with a few pieces of fish, cabbage, a squeeze of lime, and a drizzle of sauce over the top.

    excellent recipe – I grew carrots in my garden a couple of years ago and I could not bring myself to throw away the beautiful tops – so I went searching for (are they safe to eat) recipes – through experimenting discovered that they are a very slightly sweeter exchange for cilantro and make an absolutely marvelous salsa……
