Recipe:Yummy Rummy Fish Tacos with Corn and Tomato Salsa

Last night I made fish tacos for dinner. I served them up with a homemade corn and tomato salsa, and grilled corn on the cob with cilantro lime butter. Recipes are below, but I forgot to take pictures. Everything just looked so good once it was cooked, I couldn’t wait to eat it.

Recipe: Corn and Tomato Salsa


  • 1 ear of corn, grilled or roasted, and removed from the cob
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • jalapeno pepper, finely chopped (as much or as little as you want)
  • 2 tbsps red onion, finely chopped
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tbsps chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl,  season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and put in the fridge until ready to serve.

Recipe: Cilantro Lime Butter

I grilled some corn on the cob to have with my tacos. This is the butter that I made to put on the corn. So good!


  • butter, softened (I used salted because that’s what I had. If you use unsalted, add a bit of salt)
  • cilantro, finely chopped
  • lime juice (I used the juice of 1 lime)


  1. Combine ingredients in a bowl, adjust lime juice if necessary.
  2. Place butter on plastic wrap, shape into a cylinder, wrap with the plastic, and chill until ready to serve.

Recipe: Yummy Rummy Fish Tacos


  • 4 tilapia fillets (or some other mild-flavoured white fish)
  • 1 lime
  • generous glug of rum
  • scant tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp honey
  • salt and pepper
  • To serve: tortilla wraps, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise


  1. In a container with a lid, combine the juice of 1 lime (and I threw in the lime halves), the rum, olive oil, chili powder, honey, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
  2. Put the fish in the marinade, cover, and put in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat BBQ, place a sheet of foil on the grill, and cook the fish on the foil (I did this so the fish wouldn’t stick to the grill and fall apart).
  4. To serve, spread some mayo on a tortilla, put on some fish, and top with the homemade salsa, fresh tomato, and lettuce.

    Sounds amazing!
    Except for the tilapia…almost all of which is bred in poisonous chemical and waste filled lakes. Google it.
    Better to buy frozen real fish from the sea if you do not have access to fresh seafood.
    I am from a fishing family and know whereof I speak.
