How to make fish tacos without stinking up the joint

fishtacosI was never a fan of fish tacos until I was. I mean, there’s no carnitas in a fish taco or anything, but they’re still pretty darn good. I mostly order them when I’m out and about, who wants to smell up the house when cooking fish?

However, I figured out a pretty good way to make them without the stink. Use the grill! Here’s how I did it.

IMG_2896Gather your ingredients. I used tilapia, corn tortillas, a serrano pepper and some coleslaw mix from the deli. You’ll also need some mayo and… of course, Sriracha. I grilled some zucchini with olive oil and salt as a side dish because…

IMG_2899Combine the pepper, slaw, Sriracha and sour cream… Oh yeah, you also need some sour cream… into a bowl and mix it up.

IMG_2900Fire up the grill. Yeah… that’s right. Grill your fish and the zucchini over medium-high-ish heat. Don’t worry if the fish doesn’t flip over perfectly. You’re just going to chop it up in a couple minutes.
