Fish Tacos

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • Small handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 pound farm-raised fish (tilapia or favorite soft white fish), cut into bite-sized chunks
  • Salsa


  1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients, except the fish and salsa, until smooth.
  2. Pour over fish no more than 10 minutes before grilling.
  3. The acid in the citrus juice will cook the fish if left for too long.
  4. Lightly oil and heat grill on high heat.
  5. Set grate 4 inches from heat.
  6. Remove fish from marinade, shake off excess marinade, and discard remaining marinade.
  7. Place fish on grill and cook about 9 minutes, or until desired doneness, turning it once.
  8. The fish is done when it easily flakes with a fork.
  9. Serve with taco shells or lettuce and salsa.

Filling for 5 tacos.
