Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas

Preparation

  1. 1. Place first 5 ingredients in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Slowly pour oil through food chute; process until smooth. Place fish in a shallow dish; rub mixture over fish. Cover and chill 2 hours.
  2. 2. Preheat grill to high heat.
  3. 3. Sprinkle fish with salt and black pepper. Place fish on a grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill for 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from grill. Break fish into chunks. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Divide fish evenly among tortillas.
  4. Sustainable Choice: Wild-caught Alaskan halibut is the best option. If not available, opt for other U.S. or Canadian wild-caught Pacific halibut, or substitute striped bass or U.S. line-caught cod.
