This meal is the opposite of what I think of when I think of fish tacos. These are light. Fresh tasting. Clean. Flavorful. These were so good that my husband and I were scraping the bits from the bottom of the pan. These fish tacos are going to be a staple in this house from now on. I made them about two weeks ago and honestly, I cannot wait to make them again.

If you’re already outdoors and grilling up some steaks, why not slice them up and eat them in a tortilla with lots of fresh and delicious toppings?

Popular in Central and South American cuisine, ceviche is a method of "cooking" seafood by letting it marinate in citrus juices.

The traditional from-scratch way to make tortillas is to buy field corn, soak it in slaked lime, wash it thoroughly, and then grind it by hand into fresh masa. In an effort to make this recipe accessible to everyone, I’ve called for masa harina. It will yield tortillas that are vastly superior to grocery store tortillas for relatively little work. Masa harina is a flour made from dried masa. You can sometimes buy fresh masa made the traditional way from Latin American grocery stores.If you find fresh masa, make sure you get it plain, not preparada, which is for tamales. Also check if it was made from masa harina. If it was, don’t bother. You may as well make your own. The Maseca brand is widely available and produces consistently good tortillas. I wish I could find a good organic or local brand of masa harina. I’ve tried a few other types and keep coming back to Maseca for its dependability.Adapted from "D.I.Y.

Serve this over crunchy tortilla chips and top with cheese. Want more heat? Up the amount of spices used.
