Super easy, healthy and fast – this Taco Grilled Fish Recipe only has 4 ingredients and is the perfect meal for 2. It has great taco flavor and is nice and smoky from being grilled on a cedar plank.
I love date night. But sometimes, especially in the summer, life can get a little crazy and date nights don’t happen as often as I would like. So what do you do? Make your own date night at home!! Our kids go to bed fairly early, so we can put them down and then cook a dinner together and enjoy it while sitting in the back yard. Sometimes I think I enjoy that even more than going out and having to deal with crowds!
The Taco Grilled Fish is the perfect meal for a date night in. Not only is it easy and fast, but it has so much flavor and tastes better than many dishes that I’ve had when we’ve gone out. The fish is perfectly seasoned with just some lime juice and Old El Paso taco seasoning, and then a sprinkle of cilantro at the end. I used a cedar plank which gave this tons of flavor, too. I will be grilling on cedar planks all summer long!
So break out the grill and have your date meet you in the backyard for an easy, no-fuss, summer date night.
- 2 filets firm white fish (cod, tilapia, halibut, etc), about 6 oz each
- 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon Old El Paso taco seasoning
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- Soak a cedar plank for grilling overnight. Dry and then coat with vegetable oil.
- Heat a grill to medium heat, about 350ºF. Place the cedar plank on the grill to heat up for 5 minutes.
- While the plank is heating, squeeze the lime juice over the fish. Sprinkle on the taco seasoning, then rub into coat both filets entirely.
- Transfer the filets to the hot plank. Close the lid of the grill, keeping it at a medium heat. Keep a water bottle nearby to put out any flare ups on the plank.
- Grill until the fish flakes easily, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the cilantro before serving.
Add more taco seasoning if you want a bolder flavor.
