Fab Fish Tacos

The other day I marinated some fresh tilapia. The marinade went something like this:

  • 1 huge lemon, juice and zest
  • 1-2 TBSP EVOO
  • 1-2 TBSP fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 1-2 tsp capers
While Kevin grilled the fish, I put together some toppings. Shredded cabbage, chopped tomatoes, lemon, and a spicy yogurt topping.
For the spicy yogurt topping, I threw together the following:
  • 1 container OIKOS greek yogurt, plain
  • 1/2 large lemon, juiced
  • fresh parsley, chopped
  • squirt or two of Sriracha (SO spicy that it makes my nose run)
Here is the process of making a fab fish taco. Corn tortillas were brushed with EVOO and Adobo seasoning, then grilled, so they had those wonderful grill marks I love so much. Topped with the best tasting fish I have ever had. (That marinade works wonders and I let mine work overnight)A little shredded cabbage...
Chopped tomatoes...(I later picked these out because I didn't like them that much)
Spicy Yogurt sauce...
Wait! Kevin also grilled up some pineapple. yum.
It was an outstanding, light summer dinner.

Oooh! I want to try these! Do you think they'd be ok on a grill pan? I think I've managed to convince myself that the grill pan is only good for making the grill marks :\

That looks delicious. Grilled pineapple...I've never had them...but sounds like they would go very well with the fish.
