Baja Grilled Fish Tacos

Main Courses

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 to 1-1/2 pounds halibut or mahi mahi filets

Brush fish with olive oil and crushed garlic. Sprinkle with ground cumin and cayenne pepper. Heat grill or grill pan. Grill until fish is browned on the outside and cooked through — about five minutes per side. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the top and cut into one-inch chunks.

When choosing a fish to grill, halibut, cod, tilapia or Mahi Mahi are great choices for mild flavor. You can also substitute chicken for fish.
