  • 1 lbs firm white fish such as cod, halibut, etc. (one solid piece vs fillets)
  • 2 tbsp tequila
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil such as grapeseed or canola
  • 8 corn taco shells heated to package instructions
  • suggested garnishes: avocado crema cucumber and corn salsa, pickled red onion, chopped cilantro, lime slices (see post above for details)


  1. Place fish, tequila, lime juice and vegetable oil in a small glass container or a plastic freezer bag. Refrigerate for 1 to 8 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to high heat.
  3. Place fish on grill (I use a fish grate to keep the piece whole, not necessary if you don't have one) and cook at high heat for 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5-7 minutes (the ticker the piece the longer it will take).
