Martha’s Fish Tacos

We can’t get enough barbecued fish at our house. This recipe can be made ahead and served cold, or you can eat it hot off the grill. It’s fantastic either way! —Martha Benoit, Proctorsville, Vermont

    My husband loved these. I didn't have tomatoes or taco sauce, so I just used salsa. It's winter so, no cob either, just used frozen corn w/sea salt. We used multigrain taco shells. Made a really nice meal, tasted light & was filling.

    This was DELICIOUS! It was light and filling. I didn't cook on grill but prepared inside and added some shrimp. One of our favorite meals!
