Fish Tacos

Whether you're a fish-eater or not, you just might enjoy these tacos!  There are some types of fish that I love and others that I don't care for.  Halibut is a fish that I'm very fond of, probably because I like fish to taste like fish but not taste "fishy"!  This recipe allows the flavor of the Halibut to shine through without being masked by other strong flavors.  Alaskan Halibut is a firm white fish with a mild, light flavor that fits may culinary contexts.

  • 2 Alaskan Halibut filets
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Avocado slices or guacamole
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Sprouted grain tortillas or large lettuce leaves
Pico de Gallo
  • ¼ onion, chopped
  • 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ green pepper, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Warm the coconut oil and add the cilantro.  Put the fish in a bowl with the coconut oil, marinate for about 20 minutes.  Preheat a grill to a medium heat.  Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper.  Grill fish for a couple of minutes on each side until it’s cooked through and flaky.  Serve with fresh cilantro, avocado, lime wedges, and Pico de Gallo on sprouted tortillas or lettuce leaves.

For the Pico de Gallo:  Mix all ingredients together.  Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes before serving.
