  • 1 1/2
    pounds
    firm fleshed fish fillet
    3/4 inch thick (I like grouper or mahi-mahi)
  • olive oil
  • 3/4
    teaspoon
    garlic salt
  • 1
    teaspoon
    paprika
  • 2
    ears
    corn
    shucked
  • 2
    tomatoes
    1/4″ dice
  • 2
    tablespoons
    finely chopped cilantro
  • 12
    corn tortillas
  • 2
    cups
    shredded cabbage
    coleslaw mix works well, too
  • 2
    limes
    cut into wedges
  • 1/4
    cup
    pepitas or roasted pumpkin seeds

For the crema sauce

  • 1
    cup
    light sour cream
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    paprika
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    garlic salt
  • 1/4
    teaspoon
    ancho chili powder
    substitute with regular chili powder
  1. Preheat your outdoor grill to medium-high heat. 

  2. Roll each ear of corn in a damp paper towel. Microwave 2 minutes. Brush olive oil on each ear of corn.

  3. Brush the fish with olive oil and season with garlic salt and paprika. 

  4. In a bowl, stir together the crema sauce ingredients.

  5. Brush the grill grates with some olive oil. We’ll grill the corn and the fish at the same time. Add the corn onto the grill (rotate frequently during cooking). Grill the fish for 3 minutes each side, taking care not to overcook the fish. During the last minute of grilling, throw the corn tortillas on the grill, flipping halfway.  

  6. Using a serrated knife, cut the kernals off the corn. Assemble tacos with cabbage, a piece of fish, a spoonful of sauce, corn, tomato, a squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of pepitas.
