Baja Fish Tacos

Andrea's wine pick: There's nothing like the lively character of a French Sancerre--made from sauvignon blanc grapes--to complement the bright flavors in the fish tacos. Look for Domaine Reverdy-Ducroux Sancerre Beauroy 2004, $17.

  • Cook time:7 Minutes
  • Prep time:5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 pound mahi mahi or other firm white fish fillets

Preparation

1. Lightly spray grill rack with nonstick cooking spray, and preheat grill.

4. Wrap the tortillas in paper towels, and microwave 1 minute on HIGH or until they're warm.
