Blackened Ling Cod Taco

Hand food is always great outdoor food and this easy to make Blackened Ling Cod Taco is no exception.

The fresh Ling Cod is cooked on the grill, but if you catch something else, it is simple enough to swap to for whatever white fish you have. Similarly, if you don’t have a blackening seasoning it can be swapped with a similar fish seasoning. Cooking outdoors is always flexible.

The slaw is a simple yet well-balanced addition to the taco which can be made at home before heading out on the fishing trip. Once all these elements are organized it is just a matter of combining in a tortilla and enjoying. 

Ingredients

Slaw

2 cups shredded cabbage

1/2 white onion, thinly sliced

1 handful cilantro

green onion, sliced

jalapeño, to taste

1 lime, juiced

salt, to taste

Griddle Cod

6 fillet Ling Cod

blackening seasoning

salt

oil, as needed

To Serve

corn tortilla

salsa verde

Equipment

flat top grill (griddle)

Recipe Directions

  1. Thinly slice the cabbage and white onion then mix in a bowl with the cilantro and green onion. Thinly slice the jalapeno, remove seeds if wanting to keep mild.  Squeeze in lime and season with salt. Set aside. 

  2. Trim the Ling Cod if necessary so it is ready to cook then season with blackening seasoning and salt. Spray with oil. 

  3. Preheat the griddle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), then oil.

  4. Add the Ling Cod to the griddle and cook for about 3 minutes then turn and cook the other side until browned and cooked through.
    Tip: The cooking time will change depending on the thickness of the cod.

  5. Spray corn tortillas with oil then lightly season with salt, and cook them on the grill until char marks form. Turn the tortillas and continue until the other side is also marked.

  6. Make each taco by adding to the tortilla the grilled Ling Cod then top with the slaw. Feel free to top with your favorite taco condiments like salsas, sauces, and more grilled chili.
