What's this?

You don't have to be on the beach for tasty fish tacos. Ensenada Mexico is known for its Baja fish tacos, we've put the Traeger twist on them for a more flavorful, healthy version.

Ingredients

  • 2 limes

  • 2 Teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 Cup olive oil or vegetable oil

  • 2 Clove garlic, minced

  • 1 Pound skinless white fish such as cod, monkfish or halibut

  • As Needed Traeger Cajun Rub

  • 8 corn tortillas

  • As Needed shredded cabbage

  • As Needed red onion, diced

  • As Needed cilantro, chopped

  • As Needed Pickled Jalapeno slices

  • As Needed diced avocado

Steps

  • 1

    Juice one lime. Cut the other lime in wedges; set aside until serving time.
  • 2

    Make the marinade: In a small mixing bowl, combine the lime juice, mustard, and salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil, then stir in the garlic.
  • 3

    Place the fish in a resealable plastic bag, pour the marinade over it, and refrigerate for no more than 1 hour.
  • 4

    When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 5

    Remove the fish from the marinade and pat off any excess marinade with paper towels. Season generously on both sides with Traeger Cajun Rub.
  • 6

    Arrange the fish on the grill grate and grill until the fish is opaque and flakes easily when pressed with a fork. (There is no need to turn it.) Remove to a cutting board and cut into bite-size chunks. Meanwhile, warm the tortillas on the Traeger until pliant and hot.

    Arrange the fish, tortillas, and suggested accompaniments on a large platter. Garnish with the reserved lime wedges. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
