Beer Marinated Fish Taco Nachos With Spicy Avocado Lime Sauce

Fish Tacos Meet Nachos. Think of these beer marinated fish taco nachos, as a deconstructed fish taco. These nachos are topped with Beer marinated halibut, black bean, 3 different cheese, and a little radish and avocado lime sauce to really give it that fresh and light fish taco feel. It’s absolutely delicious!

So I wanted to put together a street taco meets nacho recipe. My first thought was “carne asada!” but my wife gave me that look, and was like ‘Why don’t you ever cook with fish, you know I love fish?!”

Well, ok. Fish it is! And It was a great choice. I took some beer, lime, cumin, smoked paprika to marinate my fish in. Today I used halibut, since we had some in the freezer from my last fish recipe. You can use any white fish. Tilapia, cod, orange roughy. It will all work!

In California Winter only lasts about a week. So I had the opportunity to throw all of this right on the grill. It was a nice change since I’m always making our kitchen explode. Cooking outside is so much easier for me. I don’t know how I do it but things seem to e a little easier to clean up when I’m outside grilling.

And this avocado lime sauce is delicious! Hint: make extra, because it will double as a good salad dressing. You know, for the carne asada you bought for a recipe that never happened. Or did it?
