Grilled Fish Tacos

Mr. T and I do taco nights almost weekly.   I'm always looking for some new ideas and this one was right up our alley.  Basic white fish (I used tilapia) goes on sale most weeks and tacos are an easy way to get your kids to eat more vegetables.

Grilled Fish Tacos:
(Grilled Fish Tacos)

1 pound fresh white fish such as tilapia, cod, sole, or flounder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Favorite fresh salsa- my favorite brand
Lettuce (optional)
7 - 8 fat-free flour tortillas

Arrange fish in a 2-quart square baking dish; set aside. In a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, oil, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Pour over fish. Turn fish to coat with marinade. Cover and chill for 15 minutes. Drain fish, discarding any marinade. Stack tortillas and wrap in foil.

Either grill the fish or sear the fillets in a skillet over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes of until flaky.

Transfer fish to a cutting board. Cut or flake fish into 1-inch pieces. Serve in warmed tortillas topped with a salsa of choice.
