Grilled Halibut Tacos with Chipotle Sauce


Halibut fillets and Chipole peppers in Adobo sauce are the stars of this flavorful and low fat and low cholesteral dish. I was inspired to make a very tasty and healthy fish recipe for my Father who has worked very hard to lose weight and lower his cholesterol. He has been very successful, but the food choices seem to be challenging and flavors can lack. I wanted to include a complete dinner including dessert that would provide variety and true satisfaction. Make these tasty tacos with smashed cauliflower, Grilled Ammareto Peaches and cream…Guaranteed to become part of your summer favorites!

Marinade for 1 pound of Halibut filets:

Juice from 1 Lime (put in microwave for about 10 seconds to maximize juice)
Zest from 1 Lime
2 Chipotle peppers in Adobe sauce, finely diced (remove seeds from peppers for less heat if desired)
1 tsp seafood seasoning (like Old Bay seasoning)
1 tsb chile powder
1/2 tsb caynene pepper
1 tsb cumin
1 tsp EVOO
2 tsb light vinegar ( I used rice wine vinegar, but white vinegar is fine)
2 TBS water

Mix marinade with a wire whisk and add to thawed Halibut in a ziploc bag, removing air. Place in refridgerator for about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, prep your other ingredients:

1/2 head of Red Cabbage, cleaned and cored. Sliced very thinly. Place in a bowl for serving with tacos

Chipotle Sauce:

1 cup of non-fat yogurt placed in a strainer lined with paper towel over a medium bowl for 20 minutes to remove excess moisture.
3 TBS of Adobe sauce from can of Chipotle peppers.
1 tsb of finely chopped garlic
1 TBS of finely chopped fresh or dried cilantro
1 tsp chile powder
1 tsp cayenne powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of 1/2 lime

Combine Yogurt and seasonings and place aside in fridge.

1 Package of whole wheat tortillas.
1 Avocado diced for topping (optional)
1 Diced tomato for topping (optional)

Meanwhile, Heat grill on medium-high, coating with oil or cooking spray. Grill fillets until opague and easily flaked. Remove from grill and cover with foil to keep warm. Place Whole wheat tortillas directly on grill to get grill marks and warm…place warm tortillas in a tortilla container or just cover with foil as the rest are finished. On a plate, place grilled tortilla, flaked Halibut, red cabbage and Chipotle sauce…wrap like a taco and enjoy!

  1. I know your dad would love to try these. He’s been talking about fish taco’s. Friends said they are very popular in Mexcio. They sound very tasty. I like the idea of the Chipotle peppers in Adobe sauce for heat and Avocado for a topping. Can’t wait to try these, and I know your dad will be wondering when we’re going to be invited.
