Fresh Florida Fish Tacos with Florida Summer Slaw
Serves 6 Eat with your hands — everything tastes better that way! Recipe courtesy of Leticia De Mello Bueno.
1¼ lbs. of fresh local snapper or other white fish
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt to taste
Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
1 medium lime, halved, set zest aside
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Cut and clean fish in to fillets. Dry with a linen napkin/kitchen towel and place in a baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with cayenne, Kosher salt, and pepper. Squeeze lime juice over fish, wash your hands and pre-heat the grill (medium) while the fish marinades in a cool, room-temperature location for 15-18 minutes. Brush fish on both sides with olive oil.
Grill on a fish/vegetable grill over medium flames for 4-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish or desired doneness (some people like their fish moist, others a little charred). There should be no need to turn the fish. Watch it–this will be quick. Set aside about 3 minutes and pull apart with your fingers.
