Here is what you are going to need for these wonderful grilled fish tacos with slaw:
Makes 16 small tacos
32 corn tortillas
8 Tilapia fillets
3 large limes
1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
¾ cup mayonnaise
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
½ cup +1 TBS chopped cilantro
2 cups shredded cabbage
4 ripe tomatoes
Salt & Oil
Optional – Spicy Tomato Chipotle Salsa
MARINATE THE FISH:
Place the fish in a glass or ceramic bowl. Grate about ½ a lime of zest on to the fish. Squeeze 2 limes on it, salt and drizzle with some oil to prevent fish from sticking to grill. Coat all fillets with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
MAKE THE SAUCE:
Place yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic powder, cumin and cilantro in a bowl. Add 1 TBS lime juice. Season with salt to taste. Mix well and set aside.
MAKE THE SLAW:
Mix the cabbage, tomatoes and cilantro in a bowl. Squeeze the remaining lime. Salt to taste. Mix and set aside.
Heat the grill on high. Once it is hot, reduce the heat to medium. Soak a paper towel wad in olive oil and clean your grill grid so the fish will not stick. Place the fish on the grill. Cook for about 6 to 7 minutes and flip. Cook for an extra 6 to 7 minutes. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fish.
Once you flip the fish, place the tortillas on the side of your grill and heat them. Place 2 tortillas on a plate. Smear with yogurt sauce. Add fish and salsa if desired. Top with slaw. Enjoy!
