Grilled Fish Tacos with Citrus Slaw

In our house once the weather gets warm we fire up the grill. And we bbq....ALOT. Both my husband and I are big seafood lovers and I really enjoy grilled fish. It's one of my favorites. I decided to mix it up a bit and make grilled fish tacos. I topped them with a fresh citrus slaw and the flavors paired together perfectly. They were incredible!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Citrus Slaw
Makes 10 Tacos
WW PP=3 (2.5 oz. Fish, Tortilla, and 1/8 cup slaw)
Cal 111, Fat 1.6, Carbs 13.5, Fiber 1g, Protein 10.6g

1.5lbs firm white fish of your choice (I used Sea Bass)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
kosher salt and black pepper
2 tbsp. lemon juice, divided
2 tbsp. lime juice, divided
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. orange juice
3 tbsp. light mayo
10 corn tortillas
one package shredded cabbage
cilantro, salsa, chopped red onion etc. for toppings

Place the fish in a baking dish and add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, one tbsp. lemon juice, one tbsp. lime juice and extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and turn the fish in the marinade until evenly coated. Refrigerate and let marinate at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the citrus slaw and warm the tortillas.

Combine the cabbage, mayo, 1tbsp each lemon and lime juice, and orange juice in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Cover and place in fridge.

Brush the grates of a grill pan or outdoor grill with oil and heat over medium-high heat until hot. Remove the fish from the marinade and place on the grill.

Cook without moving until the underside of the fish has grill marks and is white and opaque on the bottom, about 5-6 minutes. Flip and grill the other side until white and opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer the fish to a plate.

To construct tacos, break up some of the cooked fish, place it in a warm tortilla, and top it with slaw and any additional toppings of your choice. Enjoy!


  1. Looks great but was wondering if I could make this with salmon instead of white fish since my fiance does not like any type of white fish.

  2. Sure! You will have to adjust the cooking time but I think it would work. Enjoy!

  3. The grilled fish tacos look delicious and I love your seasoning mix! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe on the BBQ Block Party. Hope to see you next Thursday.
