Ingredients

2 tsp (10 mL) butter, melted
1/4 tsp (2 mL) chili powder
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 lb (450 g) white fish fillets (halibut, cod, haddock, etc.)
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup (125 mL) corn
1 red pepper, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice
1/4 cup (60 mL) cilantro, coarsely chopped
12 small tortillas
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) lettuce or red cabbage, chopped
2 cups (500 mL) Canadian cheddar, grated
1 cup (250 mL) plain Greek yogurt

Preparation

In a bowl, mix butter and chilli powder together. Season with pepper. Brush fish with some spicy butter. Add peppers to remaining butter and mix to coat.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat or oven to 450°F (230°C).

Transfer peppers to the grill or a baking sheet. Cook, lid closed if grilling, for 15 min., turning a few times. Add fish and cook for 5 – 10 more min., depending on thickness of fillets. The vegetables should be browned and tender.  Remove from heat.

Finely chop vegetables and mix with jalapeno pepper, lemon juice and cilantro to make a veggie salsa.  Season with salt and pepper.

Briefly heat tortillas on the grill or in the oven.

Fill tortillas with lettuce, green onions, fish, veggie salsa, corn and cheese.  Serve with Greek yogurt, to taste.

Tips

Grill more fragile types of fish on a buttered sheet of aluminium foil.

Cheese alternative: Canadian Mild or Medium Cheddar, Monterey Jack.
