Haberno-Honey & Lime Grilled Fish Tacos - Taco Night

I love taco night at our house!  NO OVEN NECESSARY!  Fire up the grill and chop yourself up a killer meal with a Taco Bar and ALL the fixins! 

This is how we did Taco Night at our house this past weekend! 

Habenero & Honey-Lime Grilled Cod with Citrus Coleslaw, Guacamole, & Pico De Gallo & Chipotle Crema  (All recipes below)  

Habenero & Honey-Lime Grilled Cod 

1 lb of fresh cod filets 
1 heaping tablespoon honey
1 lime squeezed 
1 tsp. or as much as you like habenero tabasco 
4 or 5 tbsp. olive oil 
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. cumin 

In a large zip lock bag, add all ingredients.  Work the marinade into the fish and let marinate for 10 - 15 minutes.  Don't let it go too long, or the lime will begin to cook the fish. 

Grill on medium-high heat 3-5 minutes/ side depending on thickness of the filet.  Ours were super thick, so it took 5 minutes per side.  

Flake the fish once it's off the grill, and set aside with your Taco Bar and fixins.  

Citrus Coleslaw 

1/2 bag colesalw mix

1 red bell pepper chopped
1/4 red onion chopped
1 tsp. cumin

1 lime squeezed
2 tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
1 tbsp. honey

Put coleslaw mix, red bell pepper, and onion in a bowl.  In a jar, add the remaining ingredients and shake together.  Pour over cabbage and refrigerate until you're ready for the Taco Bar!  


1 avocado removed from skin 
1 lime
1 jalapeno chopped
1/2 red onion chopped
3 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro
1 garlic clove minced into a paste 
salt and pepper

Put everything into a bowl and mash to your desired consistancy.  We like it chunky!  

Pico De Gallo 

2 ripe tomatoes
1 lime
1/2 red onion
1 jalpeno 
4 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro
1 tbsp. olive oil  
2 tbsp. V-8  (if you have it, ADD IT!  It's a secret I learned from a friend from Dominican Republic)  

Chipotle Crema 

2 tbsp. sour cream
small squeeze of fresh lime juice
1 tbsp. adobo sauce from chipotle peppers 

Whisk together and do not refrigerate.  It will harden.  But make sure to eat it within an hour.  I always make this last.  

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let refrigerate.  The longer is sets the better it gets! 

Set up your fixins and your Taco Bar!  Load em' up the way you like em'!  It's Taco Night y'all!  YUM!
