Fish Tacos


Since I've started making my own tortillas, I can't get tacos out of my mind. One other taco I love to eat are fish tacos. Yes, that is what I shall make. My fish of choice on this was some dover sole, which was basically the thing that looks decent and appetizing at the market.

I had also received in the mail a small bottle of ponzu sauce with lime courtesy of the Tastemaker program from Foodbuzz and Kikkoman, yes those who make the soy sauce. Anyway, ponzu sauce can mostly be associated with Japanese food. It really great to dipping tempura. I decided to marinate the fish in the ponzu with some minced garlic. While that did its thing. I prepped the other ingredients and made some more flour tortillas.

When the fish was ready, I grilled it on good ol' Georgie along with a bell pepper that I sliced up after. Made myself a couple taco and drizzled some tapatio over. Yum!

Makes 6 tacos



Fish Tacos
3 fillet of sole
1 large garlic clove - minced
1/3 c ponzu sauce  (kikkoman ponzu with lime)
juice of half lemon
 
6 tortillas - taco-sized
2 c shredded lettuce
1 c fresh tomato - deseeded and small diced
1 small yellow bell pepper - quartered and deseeded
1 c shredded cheese

Marinate the fish, in a shallow dish, in the ponzu, lemon and garlic for at least an hour.

Prepare your grill. If cooking in a skillet, heat 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.

Cook the fish 2-3 minutes per side depending on thickness of the fillet. Place on a clean plate and cover and let the fish rest for a couple of minutes.

Next grill the bell pepper until slightly charred and slice them into strips. 

Put the taco together:
Take a tortilla. place a few chunks of the fish in the center. Top with some lettuce, tomato, bell pepper and cheese.

Serve with some sour cream and/or hot sauce.

Sounds awesome. I've been meaning to pick up some fish at the Trader Joes near me, I don't think I've ever cooked the real stuff.

I have been ravenously hungry for fish tacos since eating Ricky's Fish Tacos a few months ago. I may need to try these!

I've never had ponzo sauce with fish tacos, but it makes sense and I need to try it. I love making mine with grilled mahi mahi. In fact, I have one restaurant that I go to and this is all I've ever ordered - I just can't get enough of them!

Yay! Fish tacos are one of my all-time favorite dishes. It's funny, I used to think they sounded awful and then I tried them one time, and now I am so hooked! I just have to have some now. I'm thinking they'll be on the menu this week :)
