Southwestern marinade for the fish
  Mahi mahi fillet 2 Pound (Skinless)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Lime juice 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon (Juice from one lime)
  Jalapeno pepper 1⁄2 Medium, finely diced
  Cilantro 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
For the taco
  Shredded lettuce 8 Ounce (One packet)
  Cilantro 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped (One handful)
  Red onion 2 Medium, diced
  Pico de gallo 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Fresh Salsa)
  Guacamole 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sour cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Corn tortillas 10 Medium (Homemade Tortillas)

To marinate the fish:
1. Place the fish fillet in a shallow dish and drizzle with olive oil and lime juice. Top with jalapeno pepper, cilantro, salt and pepper.
2. Using your hands, spread the marinade making sure to coat both sides of the fish well.
3. Let the fish marinate for 20 minutes or more. (If you're going to marinate for more than 20 minutes, cover the fish and place in the refrigerator.)
4. While the fish is marinating, combine the lettuce and cilantro into a bowl. Set this aside.
5. In smaller bowls, place the onion, salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

6. When you're ready to start cooking the fish, get the barbecue going. Cook fish until it is nicely browned. (If you'd prefer, you can also cook the fish in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.)
7. Once the fish is cooked, slice into pieces.

To Assemble the Tacos:
8. Take the tortillas and warm them up in a microwave oven for about 30 seconds.
9. Put some lettuce down the center of the tortilla, and add a spoonful of red onion. Place 1-2 pieces of fish on top, then add some fresh salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

10. Serve immediately.

The chef uses Fish Grill Baskets to grill the fish over the barbecue (for non-stick fish grilling).
