Grilled Fish Tacos Honey Lime Marinade

This marinade is so delicious and also subtle.  We've made it several times this summer and unless I find something better, will be our go to fish taco recipe.

Grilled Fish Tacos Honey Lime Marinade
allrecipes: mabcat

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay™
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets, cut into chunks       * I've used my whole 2lb bag of tilapia and felt that the marinade stretched that far with no problem.

Whisk all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl, then pour into a ziploc bag or  casserole dish.  

Add fish chunks and coat all pieces well.  Cover and refrigerate 6-8 hours or even overnight.  
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate. Set grate 4 inches from the heat.  Remove fish from marinade. Grill fish pieces until easily flaked with a fork, turning once, about 9-15 minutes.

Serve in soft corn tortillas with shredded cabbage or lettuce, tomatoes, cilantro and fresh squeezed limes.  We also love to add one of our fish taco sauces- the Lone Star Taqueria Cilantro Jalepeno Mayo or this one
