Grilling is loads of fun and tacos are delicious. So imagine how much fun it is to have some grilled tacos for dinner! In today’s post, we’re going to take a look at grilling tacos (but with a twist). The spin on this tasty meal is what keeps grilling fresh and exciting.
Nowadays, you can find fish tacos at virtually any mainstream restaurant (places like Fridays and Applebee’s), and definitely at Mexican or Southwestern style establishments. So we know they’re popular and good. Now we just need to know how to hook ’em up for ourselves.
For this task, I have enlisted the help of The Frugal Chef, who has a great video of the process that’s short & sweet. As you watch, be sure to take note of how she approximates the ingredients. I like this a lot because as you build experience grilling, you will develop a feel for things like spice measurements, cooking times and the like. Also take note of how simple it is to make such a tasty meal!
I will hasten to add that it’s important to grill a non bony fish. Or you can get a cut that isn’t full of bones, ie steak style or filleted. Specifically, I would suggest Tilapia (like in the video), Catfish, Mahi Mahi, or even some Tuna or Cod. The point is to get a fish that’s cheap, tasty, or not too bony.
Grilling fish for tacos is a really original way to enjoy a great dinner that’s quick, inexpensive, and delicious. And your folks will be highly impressed with such a unique treat. Go ahead and give it a try!
