Grill, set out toppings and let your guests do the rest. Baja-style tacos de pescado are light, fresh and easy-breezy — everything we love about summer.

Baja-Style Fish Tacos

    serves 6
    1½ lbs halibut filet (or other flakey white fish), about 2 inches thick
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 small red onion, peeled, quartered + thickly sliced
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 lime, juiced
    ¼ cup chopped cilantro
    2 tsp coarse salt
    pinch cayenne pepper
    12 six-inch corn (or flour) tortillas
    shredded cabbage
    sliced radishes
  1. Place halibut in a shallow ceramic baking dish.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients, and pour mixture over the fish, rotating to coat all sides.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
  4. Prep charcoal grill. Transfer fish and marinade from baking dish to an aluminum tray (or a packet made from double-thickness grilling foil).
  5. Once coals have passed their prime (without hot spots), place aluminum tray directly onto grill and cover, cooking fish until the skin slakes apart easily (about 12 to 15 minutes).
  6. Move aluminum tray off heat, and quickly warm the tortillas on the grill, flipping once with tongs. Gently flake fish with a fork.
  7. Fold fish into warmed tortillas, and garnish with sliced radishes, cilantro, shredded cabbage or as desired.

    ¼ tsp Ancho chili powder
    pinch coarse salt
  1. Combine all ingredients and serve as a side to Baja-Style Fish Tacos.

Recipe is engraved in my head. My friends loved it. So tasty. I loved that all the recipes (guacamole, salsa) in that specific catalog all pretty much used the same ingredients. For this recipe, I made a functional change by using arctic char (what I had at the time).
