Quick grilled fish taco marinade
I picked up a simple fish taco marinade recipe from someone at Spearboard 1-2 years ago, and finally tried it today on some leftover halibut filets. I added a few things to improve it. It's quick and tastes pretty good.
1/4 cup canola oil
1 lime (juiced)
1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
1 small jalapeno (finely diced)
1/4 cup diced fresh cilantro
1-2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 clove of crushed fresh garlic
Mix all of these ingredients together in a bowl, and then pour the mixture into a large ziplock bag with skinned fish filets. Let the filets marinate for 1-2 hours. Grill them on medium-high heat. You can oil the grill before placing the filets, but I find that the oil in the marinade is enough to keep the filets from sticking to the grill. Hope you enjoy it. My family liked it better than the store-bought fajita marinade.
If any of you discover any improvements to this basic recipe, please post them.
