Margarita Fish Tacos

May 19, 2015

Author Notes: Don't let cooking fish scare you away from making this delicious and easy dish. The trick is to place the fish on a clean, hot grill and not to turn it until it releases itself. If your grill is clean, your fish will let you know when it's ready to be flipped. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: Healthline
