Fish Tacos on a Cedar Plank

With Cinco de Mayo only cinco days away, it's time to get grilling. I'm making Fish Tacos, with a little help from Carolina Classics Catfish. They farm raise their catfish in freshwater pounds tempered by the Gulf Stream in North Carolina, free of antibiotics resulting in a delicious mild, pink-white fish.


2 Outdoor Gourmet Cedar Grilling Planks
4 Carolina Classics Catfish Filets (any white fish)
¼ c. Bill Baron’s Tequila Lime Spice
1 TBS. Butter, melted
½ head of Green Cabbage, thinly sliced
Corn Tortillas
Lime wedges
Litehouse Jalapeno Ranch #16870
Mason MargJARitas
1 1/2 oz. Tequila (Hornitos or better)
1 1/2 oz. Agave Syrup
1 to 1 1/4 oz. of lime juice
Salt for the rim of the glass
5 cubes of ice, cracked in half


First: Soak 2 Outdoor Gourmet Cedar Grilling Planks in water for 1-8 hours; the longer the better! Preheat grill to 350-375°.
Next: Rub catfish with tequila lime spice, then place seasoned catfish on soaked plank. Add to grill and close the lid and allow to smoke and smolder for 7 minutes or so.
Then: Lift grill lid and brush fillets with melted butter. Close lid for another 7 minutes or so.
**If the planks catch fire, which they often do, DON’T PANIC. Just spirtz the with H20 and keep on plankin’.
Finally: Carefully remove from grill. Serve atop warm tortilla, with cabbage, fish, Litehouse jalapeno ranch and a wedge of lime. Guacamole, salsa, and other toppings are optional.
