Grilled Fish Tacos with Guacamole

Warning: This is NOT your mother's taco! Now, I know that plenty of people out there have had fish tacos -- but for those who haven't, well this ones for you. If you haven't tried them yet you've got to do it! If you like fish you'll love fish tacos -- TRUST ME they're great. The fish cooks quickly so prepare the guacamole and other toppings ahead of time. These are great served with black beans and grilled corn on the cob. Don't forget the Margaritas! Oh, and you're going to need plenty of napkins also.

4 Mahi Mahi Fillets
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
Salt to taste
12 Soft Corn Tortillas
Toppings: Sour Cream, Shredded Cheese, Salsa, Lime, and Guacamole (below)
  1. Lightly coat the fish fillets with the olive oil and then season each side with black pepper and salt.
  2. Grill fish fillets for about 3 or 4 minutes each side, or until done.
  3. Place corn tortillas on grill to lightly toast and then move them to the upper rack to keep warm until fish is ready. They should still be pliable.
  4. Flake cooked fish with a fork.

Assemble these however you like. This is how we do it: Spread the corn tortilla with sour cream and guacamole, top with grilled fish, next comes salsa and then some cheese, finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Enjoy!

Über Guacamole: Mash together 1 large ripe Avocado (or 2 small ones), 1/3 cup prepared or fresh Salsa, juice from 1/2 a Lime, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Cilantro, fresh cracked Black Pepper, and salt to taste. This stuff is great on everything from tacos to burgers and of course tortilla chips!
