Real Good Fish
Charred Spiced Bonito Tacos

Serves 4

1 pound bonito, mackerel, or yellowfin tuna fillet, cut into 2- by 4- by 1-inch strips, or 1 small whole mackerel

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more, if necessary

1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for oiling grill

2 tablespoons chipotle rub (use store-bought or follow the link below for a recipe)

2 tablespoons diced radish

2 tablespoons very thinly sliced scallion, white and green parts

Salsa of your choice (or follow the link below for a recipe for charred tomato mint salsa)

8 small tortillas, heated



1) In a medium-sized, non-reactive bowl, toss the fish with lime juice, 1/4 cup olive oil, and the chipotle rub.

2) Cover, refrigerate, and let marinate about 1 hour.

3) Oil grill and cook fish over a hot fire until lightly charred and medium-rare (it should still be pink in the middle), about 3 minutes.

4) In a pre-warmed bowl (so fish does not cool too much), shred fish. Taste for seasoning and sprinkle with a little more chipotle rub and lime juice, if needed.

5) Top with radish and scallion and serve warm with salsa and tortillas.
