Mediterranean Fish Tacos=YUM-MO!!


After seeing this episode of Rachael Ray, Kevin turned to me and asked, "Can you make those?" So tonight we did!
* 3 lemons, zested and juiced
* 2 sprigs fresh oregano, leaves finely chopped
* A handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
* 3 cloves garlic, grated or minced
* 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 pounds halibut or mahi mahi
* Salt and pepper
* 12 (5 to 6-inch) flour tortillas {I used La Tortilla Factory Low Carb High Fiber Whole Wheat Tortillas--which are actually 0 points for 1 tortilla!!)
* 1 heart romaine, chopped [we used a bad of Romaine salad}
* 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
* 8 pepperoncini peppers {we didn't buy any so we skipped these}
* 2 roasted red peppers, patted dry
* 1 cup Greek yogurt
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1/4 cucumber, peeled and grated

Directions:
Heat grill pan over medium high heat or preheat outdoor grill.

Combine the juice and zest of 2 lemons, oregano, parsley, 2 cloves garlic, olive oil and add fish, turn to coat and season with salt and pepper.

Wrap tortillas in foil and place in warm oven or directly on grill to soften and warm through.

Shred romaine lettuce and combine with sliced onions.

Slice hot peppers and reserve.

Combine red peppers and yogurt in food processor. Add cumin, 1 clove garlic, zest and juice of remaining1 lemon, cucumber and process until smooth, transfer to a bowl.

Grill fish 6 to 7 minutes until firm and cooked through then cut into cubes.

Serve fish to wrap in soft tortillas with lettuce, onions, hot peppers and sauce.

Great dinner-- for 1 taco made with the Whole Wheat Tortillas it is only 3 points! Of course I didn't eat just one so I recorded a 10 point meal for 3 tacos--not bad for a dinner!! And before Kevin was finished he informed me I could make this again!!

These are awesome! I would recommend drying the cucumber before food processing it. The sause was too thin.
