I absolutely love fish tacos! I love them even more when I can save some calories by grilling them. I made these tacos recently for my family, and they were devoured...even the slaw! (my kiddos ate cabbage, AND they put it on their tacos!!! I'm so proud of them). The crunch of the slaw, the savory fish, the peach salsa, and the special sauce...oh my...it was a flavor party in our mouths.
"Mom, these are so good!" Music to my ears;)
- 4-5 fillets of white fish (I used Tilapia for this recipe, but you could use any white fish)
- Cherchies® Select Grilling Rub & Seasoning (for fish rub)
- 1-2 Tablespoons Coconut oil (I've been using this lately)
- 1-2 cups coleslaw mix
- 2 Tablespoons (Tbsp) Cilantro, chopped
- Juice of 1/2 of a lime
- 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) Cherchies® Chardonnay Lime and Cilantro (or to taste)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) Cherchies® Select Grilling Rub & Seasoning
- Corn tortillas
- Cherchies® Vidalia Onion Peach Salsa
- Lime wedges (optional) for garnishing
This step is optional, but I think it added a nice smokiness to the tacos. Toast the corn tortillas on both sides over a low flame. I tried toasting the tortillas in a cast iron pan for a few minutes, and although good, I preferred the tortillas over the flame. You decide. After the tortillas have toasted, place them in a tortilla warmer, or cover with a paper towel until ready to use.
Next, prepare the slaw. In a medium bowl, add the slaw mixture, the lime juice, the chopped cilantro, and Cherchies® Chardonnay Lime and Cilantro Seasoning. Set aside.
Now for the "special sauce". Combine mayonnaise and our Select Grilling Rub & Seasoning Blend. I had this cute decorator bottle I purchased a while ago, but you can get the same effect by putting the special sauce into a plastic bag and snipping off the corner. Either way, the sauce will finish off the tacos at the end.
Add oil to griddle or pan (I have a griddle attachment that fits over my burners) and turn to medium heat. While griddle is heating up, season both sides of fish with a generous amount of Cherchies® Select Grilling Rub & Seasoning. Cook fish a few minutes on each side, or until done (use a fork to check doneness by checking to see if fish flakes).
Now assemble to tacos. After fish is finished cooking, flake the fish into chunks with a fork and place on tortillas. Next add a generous amount of the slaw.
Then add the peach salsa, and finally the special sauce. There you go folks, fish tacos:) Ole!
