Fish Tacos – delicious healthy fish tacos with grilled marlin steaks, simply amazing!
I have to admit, whenever the TV is on at home, it’s always on the food network channel. Pretty sad, eh? But I love it, I have a few favorite shows that I watch a lot. It drives my husband crazy, though sometimes he’ll get hooked, he’ll sit and watch Iron Chef with me every once in a while. 🙂
One thing I see a lot is recipes for fish tacos and I have to admit, I’ve never had a fish taco before, but I love tacos in general, and I like fish sometimes so it can’t be too bad.
Now from what I’ve seen on TV with fish tacos, they are mostly done with white fish and the fish is battered and fried. However, I wanted to make it a bit healthier so we grilled the fish and the fish we used was marlin. What a beautiful fish, we had two marlin steaks which we just seasoned it a bit with some salt and pepper and sprinkled some lemon juice over it and grilled it. This fish is good to eat just on its own, but in a fish taco, with all the other fresh ingredients, well it was just delicious. And my husband who was against it at first and did his mumbling as usual, he loved it!
So if you’re like me and have never tried a fish taco, I strongly urge you to give it a try, there are chicken tacos, beef tacos, pork tacos, why not fish tacos. You don’t have to use marlin, it’s not a cheap fish, so I guess you could use any other white fish in this recipe, like tilapia or cod, I’d imagine it would be just as good.
Here’s the recipe that I used, which is just my version of what a fish taco should be like.
