Fish Tacos


1/2 lb. Mahi Mahi fillets (per person) cut into approximately 4 long strips (Tip: Costco has frozen wild Mahi Mahi fillets individually packaged. Each is about 1/2 lb.)
OR you can use 2 lb tilapia (or any firm white fish) cut in 1" strips

1. Heat grill and baste with olive oil spray (or similar)
2. Brush Mahi Mahi with marinade
3. When grill is hot, place Mahi Mahi on grill and turn after about 4 minutes. Brush on more marinade and cook another 5 minutes or so.
