Fabulous Fish Tacos with Tequila Infused Guacamole

March 21, 2013

Take a trip south of the border and make these fabulous fish tacos.  Fresh fish is quickly cooked on the grill before being stuffed into a a flour tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and tequila infused guacamole.  If you want a low carb option, replace the tortilla with a lettuce cup instead.

Preheat a grill pan to med-high heat.
Drizzle fish on each side with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Grill fish on each side until opaque, about 4 mins.
Remove fish from grill and flake into large chunks with a fork.
Heat tortillas on the grill pan until blisters form.
To assemble tacos, spread a dollop of guacamole onto tortilla, add fish, and top with shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes (or whatever toppings you prefer).

Enjoy with a Mexican beer or tasty margarita! :)
Note: if you have any leftover guacamole, serve it as a dip with tortilla chips!
