Fish Tacos

As a favor to any of my readers who have "lose weight" on their resolution list this year, I give you this very delicious, very healthy recipe.

Please excuse me for a minute though while I go back a few posts and salivate over my dueling chocolate pies.....
You can certainly substitute your favorite toppings in this taco and use flour tortillas. I really love the crunch of the cabbage since the fish has so little texture. Also, corn tortillas are the original and work great with the fish.

Fish Tacos
recipe by Bobby Flay
Marinade:
1 pound firm white fish such as mahi mahi, flounder or orata
1/4 C canola oil
1 lime, juiced
1 Tb chili powder
1 jalapeno, coarsely chopped
1/4 chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper

8 corn tortillas
thinly shredded white cabbage
sliced avacado
sour cream
thinly sliced red onion
cilantro
salsa

1. Mix together the ingredients for the marinade in a shallow dish. Add the fish, turning to coat and allow to marinade for 20 minutes. While the fish is marinating, heat your grill to medium-high. Cook the fish on a hot grill for 4 minutes on one side then 1 minute on the second. Allow to rest for 5 minutes then flake the fish with a fork.
2. Heat the tortillas on the grill, then load with fish and all the toppings. Serve immediately.

Love the fish tacos. But the recipe I clicked on was for Chorizo Chicken Bake. Something happened. Would love to see the Chorizo. Can you tell me where it comes from?

Same thing happened to me. I was looking forward to the chorizo chicken bake. I tried clicking from the pork carnitas (which look AAMAAAZZZZING!!!) I'm glad I read the comments to see if it was just me. Thanks for the proper link!
