Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango, Cucumber and Mint Salsa (Serves 4)
courtesy of Gail Simmons, Food and Wine, June Issue

3 tablespoons canola oil
2 limes, 1 zested and juiced, 1 quartered lengthwise
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
1 lb skinless halibut, salmon or cod
1 mango, diced
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
3 tablespoons finely chopped mint
1 medium serrano chili, seeded and diced
8 corn tortillas
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
4 radishes, halved if large, thinly sliced
1 pinch of salt

  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat. In a medium dish, combine oil, zest and juice from 1 lime, cilantro and half the shallot. Add fish: turn to coat. Let stand 15 minutes at room temp. Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together remaining shallot, mango, cucumber, mint, half of the chili and a generous pinch of salt; stir to combine.
  2. Remove fish from marinade. Grill flesh side down, 4 minutes, then turn and cook until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer fish to plate and let rest, then flake with fork.
  3. Grill tortillas 10-15 seconds per side; remove from grill. Divide fish among tortillas; top with salsa, avocado and radishes. Garnish with cilantro and remaining chili, if desired. Served with lime wedges.

Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set.
