Easy Fish Tacos on the Grill (Cast Iron Cooking)

Easy Fish Tacos on the Grill (Cast Iron Cooking)

Last summer I was asked to be a showcase cook for ARTEFLAME Get 10% off Arteflame Grills & Accessories with code Lindsay10!at Grill Hampton (Dan’s Papers event during Taste of Two Forks). I wanted to highlight the versatility of the ARTEFLAME grill, but I didn’t realize our “demo” station would be so popular!!

The line for our food was so long, you would’ve guessed that we were competing in the grilling competition!

On the ARTEFLAME we cooked tangy chicken tacos with grilled peppers, guacamole & salsa, blueberry balsamic chipotle steak tacos with grilled onions and queso blanco, and in a cast iron skillet, ON the grill, we made these easy fish tacos! They are boiled in beer with limes, and are delicious!

Here’s the recipe for our fan favorite, Mama’s Easy Fish Tacos:


2lbs fresh fish (cod)
4 – 5 can of beer (corona)
6-8 limes cut into rounds
Large (seasoned) cast iron skillet w/ cover
Salt, pepper and fresh cilantro
1/2 red cabbage sliced thin
1 cup salsa
1 cup sour cream
Soft tacos
Optional: hot sauce

Let’s get cookin’:

  • On grill, heat seasoned skillet. Add fish, beer (to cover), limes, cilantro and salt and pepper. Stir gently and cover until cooked.
  • Make sauce by combining salsa and sour cream. Cut cabbage. Heat soft tacos on grill.
  • Use slotted spatula to remove fish and place in heat safe bowl. Smear sauce on taco shell and layer with fish and cabbage.
  • Add more sauce and hot sauce in top.


Love & yum,
