To Make the Chipotle Lime Sour Cream


  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • ½ Chipotle Pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Chipotle Adobo Sauce 
  • Juice of ½ Lime

Wood Pellet Recommendation

The gentle smoky flavor of our New England Apple Hardwood Pellets will not overpower the fish and provide a nicely sweet aroma. 

  1. Preheat grill to 400 degrees, while the grill is preheating, in a mixing bowl combine the spices and vegetable with the fish.
  2. Open the broiler and place the fish on the grill cook until desired grill marks are achieved, (about 3-4 minutes each side). Close the broiler and continue cooking another 5-7 minutes until fish is fully cooked.
  3. Assembly: Heat the corn tortillas on the grill until lightly charred on each side. On a grilled tortilla, place Grilled fish (half of a loin), shredded cabbage, Fresh avocado slices, queso fresco, chopped cilantro, and juice from a fresh lime wedge.
