Marinated Mako Tacos w/ Homemade Guacamole {Recipe Swap}

Marinated & Grilled Mako Tacos

½ cup orange juice
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
Few twists of the Pepper grinder
1 tablespoon olive oil
Mako Shark (or any firm fish)
Sharp cheddar
Flour tortillas
Sour cream
Hot sauce
Easy homemade guacamole, see below

Mix first 6 ingredients, add fish, and place in a heavy duty Ziploc bag and stick in fridge.  I marinated the fish for 6 hours, turning a couple of times.

Prep your grill by scrubbing, cleaning and oiling the grill.  Preheat grill...I cooked on medium-high.  My steaks were thick, I grilled the mako for 7 minutes, each side.  Fish will start to flake.  Once you remove fish from the grill, cover with foil and let rest/steam for 10 minutes.

At this time, prep your fixin's:  Shred lettuce & cheese, warm soft tortillas, chop tomatoes and prepare...

Easy Homemade Guacamole:

2-3 Avocados, pitted and mashed
2 tablespoons of Wildtree Guacamole Seasoning, or any Mexican blend
1 cup of Rotel Original, drained

Mix it all up and serve with your tacos.

Back to the tacos....flake fish and mix in a bowl with all of your ingredients.  That's right toss tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and fish in a bowl.  Scoop mixture into flour tortillas, add some guac and sour cream, give it a dash of hot sauce and you have a delicious summer meal.

Thanks to our friends who fish who share the bounty with us!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful 4th of July holiday!
