I have been thinking about fish tacos for a while. I have eaten them but never cooked them. So this is my first attempt at these. They came out pretty good, but I think I can do better. So expect to see another post soon with my second attempt.
I planned on using my Copper Weber charcoal grill. I used a chimney starter to get the coals hot.
While the grill was heating up I removed the fish from the marinade bag. The marinade was simple, some olive oil, lime juice, Old Bay seasoning, salt and pepper. I threw the marinade together without measuring anything. It was done to taste. I will measure next time.
Since the haddock was thin I was afraid it would break apart and fall through the cooking grate. So I wrapped it in a foil pouch. I put a couple of slices of compound butter that I had left over from this meal so I used the rest of it up. Then I placed the fish on the butter slices, then put some thin slices of lime on top of the fish.
I then wrapped up the fish in the foil pouches. Sealing it tightly.
When the coals heated up I split the chimney load of coals into two piles on each side of the grill. I did not want direct heat on the fish, so I set it up for indirect heat. Then I placed the foil pouches on the center of the cooking grate and left it alone for 11 minutes. 11 minutes worked out perfectly because there were not a lot of coals, so it was a medium heat. You may have to adjust your time for the heat and the fish thickness.
Earlier I prepared the coleslaw and the sauce. I used red cabbage and sliced it thinly. I then mixed it with some olive oil and cider vinegar, gave it a touch of salt and fresh ground pepper. Mixed it up and put it to the side.
For the sauce I took one avocado, removed the skin and pit, then mashed it up in a bowl. I added 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt. You could also use sour cream, but I did not have any sour cream, but I did have the yogurt. I added some lime juice, salt, and fresh ground pepper. Then I added some hot sauce to taste.
When the fish was done I flaked it up and then added all the ingredients to a flour tortilla to make a soft taco. It was very good.
