Grilled Fish Tacos + Cookbook Giveaway

I am an unapologetic taco lover. Love, love, love them. Always have since I was a kid. But here’s the thing – I’ve only ever had the traditional ground beef tacos. I’ve heard rave reviews of fish tacos and have been wanting to try them for some time, but obviously have fallen short. Until now. See, part of the thing is that I’m not a huge fish person. Shrimp, salmon, crab, sushi, all good. Also, cannot forget battered cod sandwiches, those are killer. And they should be in abundance soon with Lent right around the corner! But all those other types of fish? Trout, bass, snapper, etc? Meh, never appealed to me. Well, let me tell you. I am officially converted because this is, hands-down, one of the best meals I have made in a long, long time.

You can use red snapper or striped bass for this recipe. You rub down the fish fillet with a spicy herb mixture, let it marinade for a short time, and then grill it over high heat. Since there is still snow on the ground here, I used an indoor grill and had great results. Serving suggestions include shredded green cabbage, avocado, hot sauce, sour cream, pickled vegetables and some fresh lime juice. You can of course top them with whatever you’d like, but this combination of flavors is positively suburb. The fish is really mild and has a great smoky flavor from the rub; pair that with cabbage that’s a little salty, creamy avocado, tart pickled vegetables, a dash of hot sauce and cool sour cream and you have a seriously amazing taste buds dance party.

Back at the beginning of the year when I shared some of my favorite healthier recipes from the site, I also put a list of bestselling healthy cookbooks on the sidebar. Well, the editors at Whole Living saw that I had their book, Power Foods, on the list and asked if I’d like to check out a copy. I said sure, and have since really fallen in love with the book. Not only are there tons of great (healthy) recipes like this one, but they also go through 38 “power foods” that are great to include in your diet.

While it probably appears that I subsist primarily on butter, sugar and chocolate (with a side of cream cheese), that actually couldn’t be farther from the truth. I strive to eat mostly clean (nothing processed) meals the majority of the time – whole grains, fruits, vegetables (this is the hardest for me!), very little sugar, etc. So when the time comes to have a sweet treat I allow myself the indulgence, and then share the love with others. And since watching Food, Inc. a few months ago, I have been eating significantly less meat and poultry, so meal options like this one are great to have in my repertoire.

Since I loved this book so much, I want to share a copy of it with one of you! Details below on how to enter to win…

Grilled Fish Tacos

Yield: Makes 12 tacos

Prep Time: 20 minutes (active), 30 minutes to 2 hours (inactive)

Cook Time: 8 to 12 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

For the Tacos:
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon chili powder
Coarse salt
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup finely chopped cilantro, plus sprigs for garnish
2 pounds skin-on striped bass or red snapper fillets
5 cups shredded green cabbage (½ head)
Neutral-tasting oil, such as canola or safflower, for grill
12 corn tortillas
Lime wedges, avocado, sour cream, and hot sauce, for serving
Quick Pickled Vegetables, for serving (optional, below)

For the Quick Pickled Vegetables:
2½ cups apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons coarse salt
3 cups cold water
4 carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally ¼ inch thick
2 small red onions, halved and sliced into ¾-inch wedges
4 jalapeño chiles, quartered lengthwise; ribs and seeds removed

Directions:

1. To make the Quick Pickled Vegetables: Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a saucepan with the water; bring to a boil over high heat and stir to dissolve sugar. Add carrots, onions, and jalapeños, and reduce heat to medium-high. Simmer until carrots are just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Pour into a bowl; let cool completely before covering and refrigerating. (Pickles will keep up to 2 weeks. Recipe makes 1 quart.)

2. Stir together cumin, oregano, chili powder, and 2 teaspoons salt. Mix in the olive oil and cilantro. Use a sharp knife to make shallow slits about 1½ inches apart into the fish skin; transfer to a large dish and rub both sides with spice mixture. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

3. Toss together cabbage and 1½ teaspoons salt in a medium bowl. Let sit 30 minutes.

4. Heat grill (or grill pan) to high (if using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 2 to 3 seconds); lightly oil grates. Place fish, skin side up, on grill. Cook, without moving fish, until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip, using two spatulas if necessary. Cook until fish flakes slightly when pressed in the center, 5 to 7 minutes more.

5. Transfer fish to a serving platter; let cool slightly, then shred with a fork into bite-size pieces. Garnish platter with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs. Serve warm or at room temperature (within 1 hour). Allow guests to assemble their own tacos, layering fish with cabbage, avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, pickled vegetables, and other toppings, as desired.

    My favorite tips are to eat mindfully and to step outside your comfort zone. My husband and I are making efforts to eat more slowly instead of scarfing down supper. Also, trying new foods – like fish tacos, for example :) – forces us to eat more veggies, fruits and whole grains.

    Glad to see you’re getting hip to authentic tacos! I remember when I made my east coast dwelling nephews their first fish tacos. They looked at them like they had appeared from another planet(even the corn tortilla seemed alien to them), but after that first taste…well, let’s say they’ve made room for something else besides pizza, subs and cheesesteaks on their menu. As to health tips, I keep it simple and have managed to lose 40 pounds by concentrating on the basics: somnambulation, separation, lubrication and perspiration, i.e., get the sleep you need, eat 5-6 small meals per day at regular intervals, drinl plenty of fluids, especially water, and exercise 3-4 x a week for 40 minutes or more.

    I found that adding salsa to veggies, potatos or rice dishes adds an extra serving of vegetables without much prep or time or thought. If I don’t have salsa and don’t feel like making my own, I just add diced tomatos. I do always check store bought salsa to make sure it’s just the veggies ~ no added sugar or salt or fat. Trader Joe’s has a great salsa!!

    I prepare healthy snacks for the week on Saturday and Sunday. I keep them within easy reach and it helps me to make better lunch and snacking choices. For example, I cut up carrots, celery, radishes, green/red/yellow peppers, snap peas, cauliflower, broccoli, etc. and low fat cheese, and then I keep them front and center in my fridge. I also wash and remove any stickers from fruits such as apples, pears, nectarines, or whatever looks good and is in season and have it within easy reach on my kitchen counter and dining room table. I also package portions of raisins, dried fruit, almonds, cashews, and other healthy treats so they are easy to grab. If I have any vegetables that are not eaten during the week for lunch or snacks I incorporate them into dinners and salads.

    Another tip is that I make a batch of fresh vinaigrette or dressing (changes weekly) for the veggies and salads made with dinner throughout the week. It helps keep it interesting. This week’s dressing is a creamy and zesty green dressing made with yogurt, limejuice, cumin, cilantro, garlic, and jalapeno. Last week was balsamic vinaigrette and next week will probably be a sesame oil and soy sauce dressing.

    I tricked myself into liking veggies, but now I LOVE them.
    1) I add veggies to everything I make (except oatmeal.. fruit goes in there)
    2) Roast veggies!! ALL OF THEM.. they taste 1000% better than steamed or raw ones… just a mist of EVOO, sea salt and a grill or 400 degree oven turns boring veggies into deliciousness. Roasted carrots, beets, asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower are some of my favorites.

    Dang it, now I’m craving roasted carrots.

    My best healthy eating tip is to plan and prepare on weekends. I do a basic meal plan for the week, shop, and then pack up as much food so that it’s easy to grab and go for breakfast and lunch. Oatmeal goes in plastic bowl containers. I pack salads, sides of mashed sweet potatoes, yogurt, etc. Baggies of carrots or sliced bell peppers and pieces of fruit are ready to go as well. It’s like a mix and match lunch every day and guarantees (usually) that I won’t make a run for Chick-Fil-A at lunch.

    For a hit of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, plus tons of vitamins and minerals, I recommend adding a tablespoon of ground flaxseed to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt + granola, soups, really anything! I’ve sprinkled it over stovetop popped popcorn with other herbs or spices, and it adds a pleasant nuttiness.

    When a savory recipe (like soup or sauce) calls for cream, I substitute it with cooked, pureed cauliflower. It sounds disgusting, I know, but the flavor is so mild that you can’t tell by taste. This method made the creamiest, best-tasting macaroni and cheese I’ve ever had.

    Great giveaway, Michelle, and these tacos look fantastically tasty! My best advice for healthy eating is to toss meat, veggies, potatoes, etc., in a light marinade of olive oil and spices and tossing them around, instead of dousing them in oil on the pan or in the pot. A bit of olive oil every day is good for the heart!

    My healthy eating tip would be that when I get home from the grocery store I portion control items before putting them away . . . grapes, strawberries, blueberries, etc. get washed and divided into snack containers, pretzels get divided up into snack containers, cat cookies (Trader Joes) get divided into snack containers, chunks of cheese get cut and — then I don’t have to think about it — much cheaper than paying a company to do this for me — and they are all going into re-usable containers and not packages that are going into the landfill.

    My favorite healthy tip is to eat veggies between meals. It gives me that added boost I need to make it to the next meal, and the crisp amazing taste is so exciting!!

    We try to grocery shop carefully. If it’s not here we can’t eat it.

    My healthy eating tip is to pack lots of healthy food for a day at the office, and then eat it a little at a time every couple hours. Keeps me from wandering to the vending machine.

    Drink lots of water! It fills you up to curb cravings and helps clean you out!

    I love love love tacos too!! I always cut and prep my fruit and veggies for the week on sunday. Then I’ll divide them into individual servings so they are easy to grab throughout the week and I have no excuse!

    We have a small salad before dinner to help us with portion control during dinner

    My favourite way to eat healthy (but still enjoy eating!) is to use light or fat free products whenever I can. I don’t want to sacrifice flavour for my diet!

    Also, LOTS of water!

    Always do most of your shopping the perimeter of the grocery store to avoid processed foods.
