Diabetic Living Magazine
“Strips of swordfish mingle with jerk seasoning and mango salsa for a different kind of taco in this 30-minute dinner recipe.”
1 large mango, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
1 small cucumber, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 thinly sliced green onion
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 pound fresh or frozen swordfish or halibut steaks, cut 1 inch thick
½ teaspoon Jamaican jerk seasoning
8 6-inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded fresh spinach or lettuce
1To prepare Mango Salsa: In a large bowl combine mango, tomato, cucumber, snipped fresh cilantro; jalapeno pepper, green onion; and lime juice. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
2To prepare Fish Tacos: Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry. Cut fish crosswise into ¾-inch slices; sprinkle with Jamaican jerk seasoning. Place fish strips in a greased grill basket. Grill fish on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning the basket once halfway through grilling time (see Tip).
3Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil. Place at edge of grill; heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
4To serve, fill warm tortillas with spinach, fish, and Mango Salsa. Serve Mango Salsa with a slotted spoon.
Variation: Broiling Directions: Place seasoned fish slices on the greased unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes; turn fish. Broil for 3 to 7 minutes more or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil. Heat package on lower rack of oven for 5 to 7 minutes.
