FINISH ON SITE: Grill tortillas, poblanos, avocados and cod; assemble tacos.

PACK THESE TOOLS: Grill, grilling tongs, brush, spatula, knife, cutting board and fork.

  • 40minDURATION
  • 20minPREP TIME


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



  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.
