If you travel to sunny San Diego or Mexico's Baja region, you will find hundreds of restaurants and food stands offering fish tacos. Here the fish is sautéed, but for an extra smoky flavor try grilling it.

Ingredients

For the Salsa:
2 lb. fresh oranges, peeled and segmented
1 lb. 8 oz. California avocados, peeled and pitted
4 oz. fresh lime juice
4 oz. sliced green onions
4 oz. chopped cilantro
Crushed red pepper flakes and salt, to taste

For the Cod:
6 lb. Alaska cod fillets
6 oz. olive oil
Lemon-pepper seasoning,
to taste
4 oz. fresh lime juice
48 corn tortillas (6- or 8-in.)

Steps

1. Prepare salsa: Cut oranges and avocados into 1⁄2-in. chunks. Combine with lime juice, onions, and cilantro. Add pepper flakes and salt to taste.

2. Per order, sauté each cod fillet in 1⁄2 tbsp. oil; season with lemon-pepper and 2 tsp. lime juice. Break cod into chunks.

3. Spoon cod and approximately 2⁄3 cup salsa onto double layer of tortillas. Fold over to serve.
