Tips to make Best Grilled Fish tacos:

  • Fish: Buy the freshest fish as conceivable as the flavors are absolutely trustworthy.

Get the lean white fish filets since they need less time to marinade and cooks actually quicker. In the case of using cod, grill your fish over low medium heat as it has the tendency to break.

  • Marination: Marination is the way to get more progressively rich flavors. You can marinate up to 30 mins.
  • Tortillas: As everyone says homemade serves the purpose. You can use flour tortillas or corn tortillas made from masa flour/cornmeal. Always warm the tortilla over the hot grill before we use. 
  • Pico de Gallo: make fresh Pico de Gallo. Don’t store them in room temperature for more than 2 hours as it reduces the flavor.
  • Taco sauce: I made the taco sauce using yogurt and other seasonings.

You can also use mayonnaise, sour cream or grated cheese.

  • Cabbage: Shred the purple cabbage or green cabbage very thinly.
