Ingredients

  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 ¼ lb. cod
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 flour tortillas (I like fajita size)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 batch Grilled Cherry Salsa (recipe below)
  • ¼ cup cotija or queso blanco cheese, crumbled
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro

Grilled Cherry Salsa

  • 40 pitted cherries
  • ½ red onion, cut into slices ½-inch thick
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ½ jalapeño pepper
  • 2 limes, halved
  • 2 tsp finely chopped cilantro
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Place cod on a large piece of foil and pour butter over the top. Sprinkle spice mixture over the top. Place another piece of foil over the cod and pinch edges tightly to seal closed.
  • Heat grill to medium heat and place foil packet with cod on. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until fish flakes with a fork.
  • Brush flour tortillas lightly on both sides with olive oil and place on grill for about 30 seconds. Flip and grill for another 30 seconds.
  • Divide fish equally between each tortilla. Top with grilled cherry salsa, cheese, and cilantro. Serve with a grilled lime wedge as garnish.

Grilled Cherry Salsa

  • Place cherries on skewers. Brush onions lightly with olive oil.
  • Heat grill to medium and place cherry skewers, onions, and jalapeño on grill. Check for grill marks and remove limes and onions from grill after about 5 minutes and jalapeño and cherries after 10 minutes.
  • Chop cherries, onion, and jalapeño. Toss together in a bowl. Juice two of the lime halves into the bowl and add cilantro and salt. Cut remaining limes into wedges and use as garnish for tacos.
