- 16 oz piece of halibut (or fish of your liking)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 tsp each of onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper
- Pinch of chili powder
- 1 cup chopped mixed salad greens (use any that you have)
- 10-12 cherry tomatoes halved (we used blush, cherry, and tiger tomatoes)
- 1/4 purple onion minced
- 1 tsp of jalapeno minced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tsp chopped fresh basil
- dash of dried oregano
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup grated mild Gouda
- 6 medium size soft corn tortillas
- mild tomato salsa
- mild avocado salsa
- garlic chipotle salsa
Dry rubbing the fish:
- Firstly I rub the fish with extra virgin olive oil.
- Secondly, I sprinkle the fish with all those lovely seasonings, onion and garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, coriander, and depending on how hot you want it, a dash of chili powder.
- Lastly, I let that sit a bit so all the seasoning can get acquainted with the flesh of this halibut!
Prepping the garnishes:
- First, took some washed and spun salad mixed greens and broke them up, and into a bowl that goes.
- Secondly, halved a variety of cherry tomatoes and tossed them in a bowl with evo oil, salt, pepper, dried oregano, minced onion, fresh chopped cilantro, jalapeno, and basil, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
- Lastly grate up the cheese!
Grilling the fish:
- I have preheated the barbeque to a nice 400 degree Fahrenheit temperature. I have a grilling pan that heated up in there as well.
- Now time to get that fish all caramelized, charred, and flavorful, and onto the grill it goes. Watch it because it cooks very quickly. About 5-7 minutes a side and it will be done. This all depends on the thickness of the fish as well. Optimally we want about a 145 degree F temp.
- Take off grill and let rest. We need to also grilled the corn tortillas, about a minute a side or until grill marks appear.
Assembling the tacos:
- Firstly, I sprinkle some grated cheese onto the warm tortilla, then add some of the garlic chipotle.
- Secondly, on goes the halibut that I pull apart a bit. Beside the fish, some of the dressed tomatoes, and on the other side, the salad greens.
- Thirdly, time to add some spice with a little tomato, and avocado salsa, and we better sprinkle a little more grated gouda, just because!
- Ready to serve and enjoy!
You can use any fish you like but remember the cook times will vary.
