Great any time of year but really good in spring and summer with a spicy
Margarita or an ice-cold pepper infused beer. - Saul Ginsburg, Co-Founder



  1. 1 pound white fish – mahi mahi, talapia or orata
  2. ¼ cup canola oil
  3. 1 lime – juiced
  4. 1 tablespoon Smoked Out pepper flakes
  5. 1 jalapeno, chopped
  6. ¼ - ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  7. 8 flour or corn tortillas
  8. 2 cups of your favorite salsa

Garnish with:

  1. Shredded white cabbage
  2. Salsa
  3. Chopped cilantro leaves
  4. Sour cream or Crema 
  5. Sliced red onion 
  6. Sliced green onion 
  7. Smoked Out pepper flakes 
  8. Hot sauce 


This one is easy:

  1. I recommend cooking the fish on your grill while sipping a Spicy Margarita (check out our recipe). A skillet on your inside cooktop will work just fine too!
  2. Whisk together the oil, lime juice, Smoked Out flakes, jalapeño and cilantro, pour over the fish. Let marinate for 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Remove the fish from the marinade, place on a hot grill, flesh side down. Grill the fish for 4 minutes and then flip for 30 seconds and remove.
  4. Let the fish rest for 5 minutes then flake the fish with a fork.
  5. Place the tortillas on the grill for 20 seconds. Divide the fish on the tortillas and then use your imagination with what garnishes you are adding.
