So, you've caught your channel catfish, or maybe a walleye, northern pike or number of panfish. What's better than to prepare tacos from your catch?

In this episode of North Dakota Outdoors, Game and Fish Department R3 coordinator Cayla Bendel shows how to prepare grilled fish tacos, which can be started the night before or made late-afternoon for a tasty dinnertime meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 fish fillets (approx.)
  • White corn tortillas
  • 2 tbl olive oil
  • 2 tbl lime juice

  • Remove fillets from marinade and place in foil, ensuring they're still evenly coated with the marinade. Seal foil packets so they can be flipped on the grill.

  • Dice tomatoes, cabbage, red onion and cilantro. Mix with lime juice to make a pico de gallo.
  • Combine sour cream, mayo, lime juice, garlic powder and hot sauce to make fish taco sauce.
