Cabo Wabo Fish Tacos

Cabo Wabo Fish Tacos created by Bonnie G 2

Mexican tacos made with grilled firm fish. The tuna is yellowfin, not the kind you get from a can. You can serve these as prepared or with a cilantro cream sauce, if desired.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix together lime juice, tequila, mexican oregano, minced garlic, onion powder, ground cumin, and 1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro in a small bowl.
  • Place tuna fillet in a ziploc bag and pour marinade over fish.
  • Remove excess air from bag and seal.
  • Refrigerate for one hour, while you prepare your grill.
  • Prepare grill by spraying grill surface with non-stick cooking spray BEFORE applying heat.
  • Over medium-hot grill (gas, charcoal, electric) cook tuna, turning once, until cooked through (you may just cook on exterior if you prefer).
  • (The cooking time will depend upon the thickness of your fillet; tuna can be eaten rare. I suggest a fillet that is slightly pink in the center so it flakes easily without being overdone. Do not overcook your fillet, however.) Set aside.
  • Briefly heat corn tortillas carefully on grill.
  • Do not overcook, or they will get hard.
  • Break tuna into small chunks or shredded pieces and place about 1 1/2 ounces on a double layer of corn tortilla for each taco.
  • Add shredded cabbage and chopped cilantro and squeeze a wedge of lime over the taco contents.
  • If you wish a spicier taste, add the chilies.
  • Serve.

    Easy, fast and simple and add to that they taste soooo good. The spices and flavors all went together perfectly. Only thing I did different is did not have cabbage so used lettuce instead. This will be a favorite way to fix and present fish tacos from now on. Thanks so much for posting

    Nice flavors. My first tacos fell apart but the second was better after sitting a bit.

    Loved it! The marinade was really great. I wanted to add a little more moisture (because I accidentally overcooked the fish!), so I mixed up some mayonaise with salsa and chipotle sauce to dress the cabbage. Shredded some carrots in with the mixture too. It was delicious! Thanks!

    This was really good and the marinade was awesome. However we did not use onion powder and the fish we used was tilapia which is cheaper and really absorbed the marinade well. I well definitely be serving these are parties.
