Cod Fish Tacos With Corn Salsa & Guacamole

Part of the “When Afrodite’s Kitchen Meets Foodsaver” Series

Back on the west coast means I am being reacquainted with a lot of my west-coast food favourites. Fish tacos are very popular in West-Coast North America. They are both flavourful and healthy if the fish is grilled and not deep fried. I haven’t yet seen fish tacos sold in Cyprus, but there is no reason you can’t make them yourself.

Web Quality Foodsaver Fish Tacos -7170These fish tacos used grilled white fish – cod is my preference because it is so easy to cook and tasty. The fish is paired with a super fresh and tasty corn salsa that can be enjoyed on its own, and guacamole for a spicy creamy kick. Fish tacos are easy to put together and serve a lot of people; they are a real crowd pleaser! Perfect for weeknights, entertaining and also if and when you are fasting. Enjoy!

Brush the pan with olive oil so that the cod doesn’t stick to the pan when you grill it. Once the grill pan is hot, add the fish fillets. Grill for about 10 minutes, until the meat is white throughout. Turn the fish towards the end to ensure both sides are cooked.
