Fish Tacos with Grilled Tropical Fruit Salsa

Another variation on a theme. Fish tacos. Grilled tropical fruit salsa. I ain't ready to say good-bye to summer just yet.

Fish Tacos with Grilled Tropical Fruit Salsa


1 1/2 lbs mild white fish fillets
1/4 watermelon, sliced and grilled
1 pineapple, sliced and grilled
1 mango, sliced and grilled
2 ripe avocados, chopped
3 TBS cilantro, chopped (more or less to taste)
2 TBS light agave nectar
1/8 tsp salt
cajun seasoning
butter (or butter substitute)
12 corn tortillas

The Preparation Method:

Begin heating the grill on high.

Slice watermelon, pineapple and mango. Brush both sides with a light coat of agave nectar. Place on a very hot grill. Grill about five minutes or until fruit is soft and has nice grill marks. Flipping once halfway through.

Turn oven broiler on high.

Wash and pat dry the white fish. Place in a baking dish one layer thick. Sprinkle a heavy dose of cajun seasoning over the top. The more the better with this stuff! Add small bits of butter over the top about four inches apart.

Place under the broiler for approximately 7 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Pull the fruit off the grill. Dice the watermelon, pineapple, mango and avocado. Mix together in a large bowl with 1/8 tsp salt and 3 TBS chopped cilantro. Pour any remaining agave nectar in the mix.

Serve inside warmed corn tortillas. We like to fry each tortilla in a piping hot skillet with a touch of oil to make it slightly brown and very soft. Salting the fried tortilla makes it even better. Enjoy!
