Ingredients

6 tbsp fresh cilantro

¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

3 cloves garlic

½ red jalapeño or serrano chile, halved and seeded

2 tsp finely chopped lime zest + 3 limes, quartered, for serving

12 6-inch corn tortillas

4 poblanos (4 oz each), each cut into 3–4 large pieces, stemmed and seeded

4½ tbsp olive oil, divided

3 avocados, halved and pitted

1¼ tsp sea salt, divided

¾ tsp ground black pepper, divided

1½ lb skinless cod fillets

1 tsp ground coriander

 

Preparation

  1. Prepare gremolata: On a cutting board, chop cilantro, parsley, garlic, chile and lime zest together (or pulse together in a food processor). Transfer to a portable lidded container; refrigerate.
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium. Grill tortillas until grill-marked, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Brush poblanos with 2 tbsp oil and halved avocados with 1 tbsp oil. Grill avocados on high, cut side down, until grill-marked, about 2 minutes. Grill poblanos until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes per side. Season poblanos with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Thinly slice poblanos crosswise and thinly slice avocados.
  4. Reduce heat on grill to medium. Brush cod with remaining 1½ tbsp oil, sprinkle with coriander, ¾ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper, and grill until marked and flaky, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and flake into large chunks. (NOTE: To prevent delicate fish from flaking too much on the grill, cut pieces of foil an inch wider than the size of the fish and line with a smaller piece of parchment paper. Brush generously with oil, then cookw fish on top. If you’re using a grill pan, you can place fish straight into pan.)
  5. Divide avocados, poblano, flaked fish and gremolata among tortillas. Serve with lime wedges.

Cherie Macri  -  My Core Club journey has been such an amazing experience thus far. In February, when I first walked in everyone was so nice and friendly. I have gone to other gyms in the past where I just never felt like I belonged…Core Club has been so different.  I had put on extra weight and just didn’t know how I was going to get it off.  I had lost confidence in myself. I was turning 30 in June and knew I needed a change.  I started routinely going to BodyPump with Janice and I LOVED it.  Fast forward a few months and I’m down 25 lbs. and I feel awesome!!!  So thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I love your gym!!
