Grilled Cod and Avocado Tacos [Video]

Happy Sunday! Last month, we shared with you our favorite recipe for spicy salmon tacos and now we’re back at it again, coming to you this time with THE BEST GRILLED COD FISH TACOS! The all-caps are totally necessary, because these tacos are just that good.

Our reasoning:

  1. The combination of the flaky, grilled fish and creamy, smoky avocado is simply unbeatable! It’s light yet satisfying, and it tastes out of this world!
  2. The entire taco is tied together with a ready-to-eat broccoli slaw, making it an easy recipe to throw together during the week or for a last-minute dinner with friends.
  3. This recipe is super versatile. Lately, we’ve been reaching for cod to make these tacos, but tilapia and mahi-mahi work well, too.

    I grew up in a cod fishing community and yet I don’t recall ever having it grilled. Maybe it’s time to give it a try!
