Low Sodium Grilled Fish Tacos

Grilled Fish Tacos with Lime Slaw

History Lesson

How many times have you heard the phrase “Taco Tuesday”?  We have all seen our local and national chains advertise a Tuesday special on Tacos.  But, do you really know the origins?  Probably not.  There have been many arguments about the phrase for decades.  One of the more interesting articles on the subject was written by Gustavo Arellano in a 2018 article I found on Thrillist.com.  There is so much information about Taco Tuesday® in this article.  More then you ever thought possible! 

I love any kind of taco on any day of the week.  So, enjoy Grilled Fish Tacos with Lime Slaw on a Tuesday if you choose; just don’t call it Taco Tuesday®  Be sure to try another great fish taco recipe, Beer-Battered Fish Tacos with Tomato & Avocado Salsa

Grilled Fish Tacos with Lime Slaw

Recipe adapted from Food Network Magazine, June 2020
The fish can be grilled outdoors or on an indoor grill. I have even cooked the fish on a griddle. Any way you choose to "grill" the fish, these are simple, tasty, and healthy tacos.
Note: This recipe prepares the fish on an indoor grill.
