Author Notes

Fish tacos, how we love them so… truly one of my favorite things to eat. I enjoy indulging in crispy fried versions once in a while, but in general prefer a healthier baked or grilled version. With the immense flavor of this tequila-lime recipe nothing will be lost, promise! There is just something so gratifying about a good fish taco. All you need is a nice flaky fish, a zesty salsa with a kick, guacamole, a crunchy slaw and of course a nice amount of citrus and spice and everything nice!

My family loved this recipe and I hope you enjoy it too. With summer just beginning, this is the perfect dish to make for warm afternoons in the backyard served with a refreshing margarita!

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound wild caught Cod fish
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 of one jalapeno chopped (remove veins/seeds for less heat)

  1. Cut fish into smallish pieces (approx 3-4 inches long).
  2. Make the marinade by combining tequila, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro and jalapeno, S+P in a bowel.
