Kyle’s Grilled Fish Tacos

Grilled Fish TacosWhen we think of Mexican cooking sometimes we think of heavy cheese dishes. In actuality, much of the cuisine of Mexico is fresh, grilled food: meats and fish and vegetables.

Grilled food generally means healthy food. So throw some fish on the grill, mix up a couple batches of salsas, open the bag of chips and invite some friends to join you!

Kyle’s Grilled Fish Tacos


  • Vegetable oil for grill
  • 1-2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • 1 ¼ – 1 ½ pounds of skinless, boneless firm white-fleshed fish fillet (I used Cod) (about 1” thick)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • Corn or flour tortillas, warmed or lightly toasted
  • Corn Relish or Mango Relish


  1. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic and lime juice.
  2. Add the fish to the bowl and turn once in the olive oil to coat and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the fish from the marinade and let excess drip off. Season with salt and pepper and grill about 6 minutes on each side until the flesh is opaque throughout.
  5. With a fork, break the fish into large pieces and serve with tortillas and Mango or Corn Relish.
