Gluten Free Fish Tacos

Posted in: Dinner, Lunch, Gluten Free, Low Fat, Seafood,


While the scope of Nick’s career has afforded him great range in the kitchen and considerable business expertise, it is ownership that has brought him the deep satisfaction that attracted him to the kitchen almost 20 years ago.  "Being back in the kitchen keeps me connected to the ingredients that I love allowing me to create excitement with each plate."  Nick’s passion for healthy food is evident as he creates this Mahi Mahi Tacos recipe with Four Town Farm Corn & Peppadew Relish and Honey-Chipotle Vinaigrette & Baby Cilantro.  Nick takes this native fish of Rhode Island and combines it with a wonderful combination of citrus, sweet, spice and zip to create a gluten-free, delicious low fat fish taco.

Fish:  Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season fish with olive oil, lime and salt.  Bake for 10 minutes until cooked through.

Shells:  In a non-stick pan over medium heat, cook the shells until they steam and soften, about 1 minute on each side.


Honey Chipotle Dressing:  Combine all ingredients and blend until fully incorporated.


Relish:  In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, add oil and sauté shallots, peppadews, corn and tomatoes.  Cook, stirring often to not brown.  Once cooked but still al dente, add vinegar and lime juice.  Reduce liquid and remove from heat.  Season with salt and pepper and fold in mint and cilantro.


Build tacos starting with shells, add fish, top with corn relish and honey-chipotle dressing.
