Cooking Light JUNE 2011

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 2 tacos)
  • Hands-on:25 Minutes
  • Total:2 Hours, 25 Minutes

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. 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. Preheat grill to high heat.

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.

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.
