Fish Tacos

We just got some grill accessories as a wedding gift (thank you Katy and Nick!) and we were eager to use them, so I thought fish tacos would be a good choice to make use of our new fish griller.

I used tilapia, but mahi mahi or red snapper would have also worked. With our grilling tools we also got some tasty spice rubs, so I used the spicy chipotle one...but if I didn't have those I would have combined some chipotle chili powder, garlic powder, and salt. I also used canola oil on the fish.

For toppings, I added spicy black beans, and made mango salsa by mixing these ingredients:

2 mangos, diced
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1/3 of a red onion, diced
handful cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
couple pinches kosher salt

I packed corn tortillas into a foil packet and heated them up on the grill as the fish cooked. The tortillas only needed a couple minutes, while the fish cooked for about 5-6 minutes on each side. Cut up the fish into small pieces, add the toppings...and voila!
