Preparation time: 35 minutes
1 tbsp olive oil
4 limes, halved, divided
5 cloves garlic, minced, divided
2 tsp ground cumin, divided
4 portions swordfish or tuna (about 1-1/2 lb)
1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
1/4 red onion, minced
2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
8 6-inch flour tortillas
8 lettuce leaves
Preheat grill to medium.
Combine olive oil, juice of 3 limes, 4 garlic cloves, and 1 tsp cumin in a shallow bowl or pie plate. Then add fish to this marinade and let it soak up the flavors for 15 minutes at room temperature, turning once after about 7 minutes.
While fish is marinating, in a separate small mixing bowl, stir together the remaining lime juice, garlic, and cumin with diced avocado, onion, jalapenos and cilantro.
Place marinated fish on hot grill and cook for approximately 5 minutes, then turn and grill for approximately 5 more minutes, until opaque throughout. Place cooked fish on a cutting board, let it cool slightly, then slice into thin strips.
While the grill is still hot, place tortillas directly on it and grill them for about 30 seconds on each side.
Place two tortillas on each plate. Put a lettuce leaf in each tortilla, fill with a portion of grilled, sliced fish, and top with tangy avocado salsa. Fold the tortillas over, serve and enjoy!
