You know how every once in awhile, you really REALLY get your money’s worth of something? That’s how I feel about the Maui guidebook Jeff and I took on our honeymoon six years ago. We used this thing every day that we were there, letting it guide us on driving tours around the island, to the best beaches for snorkeling, and to amazing local restaurants. We’ve even sent this book along with friends on at least five other honeymoons and vacations. My parents are taking it back this fall for their first trip to Hawaii.
One of the meals the good book guided us to was a small taco joint where I had my first-ever plate of fish tacos. Growing up in a small Midwestern town, fish tacos didn’t really hit my radar before that trip, but I instantly fell in love. I love them (and pretty much all tacos) for a trifecta of reasons: they’re healthy but tasty, they’re easy on your budget, and they’re incredibly fast and simple to pull together.
I used affordable tilapia for these Grilled Fish Tacos with Summer Salsa, and rubbed it with cumin for a virtually calorie-free boost of flavor to start with. The fish is thrown on the grill for just a few minutes, then topped with hot sauce and a fresh mixture of avocado, mango, jicama, cilantro and lime juice. This meal would be perfect for a fit family who wants to get cooking together, as one person can be outside grilling the fish, while others can pull together the toppings and warm the tortillas.
