  • Fish Fajitas W/ Spicy Salsa Verde

    This aired yesterday morning on Paula's Best Dishes even though it says airing July 21st. Sounds delicious to me.

    Fish Fajitas with Spicy Salsa Verde

    Recipe courtesy the Deen Brothers
    See this recipe on air Monday Jul. 21 at 12:00 PM ET/PT.



    1 1/2 pounds mahi mahi, skin removed
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 fresh lime
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
    Salsa Verde, recipe follows.
    1 avocado, sliced

    Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
    Cut the fish into 1-inch strips and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with lime juice.

    With a rag or paper towel, grease the grill with oil to prevent sticking. Place fish on grill gently; and cook for 3 minutes on each side, turning carefully with tongs.

    On the cooler outer edges of the grill place the tortillas to warm them. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a plate or a wide shallow bowl lined with a clean kitchen towel. Fold the edges of the towel over tortillas to keep them warm.

    To assemble, divide the fish among tortillas and top with salsa verde and avocado slices. Squeeze lime juice over the avocado and roll up the tortillas.


    Salsa Verde:

    Recipe courtesy Bobby Deen

    1 1/2 pound tomatillos
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
    1/2 cup cilantro leaves
    2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
    1/4 teaspoon sugar
    Sal and freshly ground black pepper

    Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Cut in half and place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for about 5 to 7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.
    Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, jalapeno peppers and sugar in a food processor or blender and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

    Serve with chips or as a salsa accompaniment to Mexican dishes.

    Yield: 4 to 6 servings
    Prep time: 10 minutes
    Cook time: 7 minutes
    Ease of Preparation: Easy

      I use Panko crumbs to coat fish when I make fish tacos and wrap some cole slaw in with it. Yum!

        When I visit the Fam Damily in San Diego, we ALWAYS stop at Rubio's in Pacific Beach. Anyone have their recipe (or something similar) to their Fish Taco's?
