Fish Fajitas with Spicy Salsa Verde
- 1 1/2 pounds mahi mahi, skin removed
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 fresh lime
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
- Salsa Verde, recipe follows.
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 1 1/2 pound tomatillos
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
- 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
- 2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
- Sal and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
Cut the fish into 1-inch strips and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with lime juice.
On the cooler outer edges of the grill place the tortillas to warm them. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a plate or a wide shallow bowl lined with a clean kitchen towel. Fold the edges of the towel over tortillas to keep them warm.
To assemble, divide the fish among tortillas and top with salsa verde and avocado slices. Squeeze lime juice over the avocado and roll up the tortillas.Salsa Verde:
Recipe courtesy Bobby Deen
Remove papery husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Cut in half and place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for about 5 to 7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.
Place tomatillos, lime juice, onions, cilantro, jalapeno peppers and sugar in a food processor or blender and pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and mixed. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Serve with chips or as a salsa accompaniment to Mexican dishes.
