Ingredients:  
1 1/2 pounds firm fleshed fish fillet, 3/4 inch thick (I like grouper or mahi-mahi)
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 ear corn, shucked
1 large tomato, 1/4″ dice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
8 corn tortillas
1/2 cabbage, shredded
2 limes, cut into wedges
1/4 cup pepitas or roasted pumpkin seeds
For the sauce (stir together)
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ancho chili powder (substitute with chili powder)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat your outdoor grill. Cut the fish into 8 thick strips, about 1″ wide x 4″. Youíll be using 1 fish fillet per taco, 2 tacos per person. On a plate or bowl, toss the fish with the garlic salt, paprika and olive oil. Brush a bit of the oil onto the corn on the cob. Grill the corn on the grill over direct heat, rotating a few times.
Three minutes after starting the corn, itís time to grill the fish for 2-4 minutes each side, depending on thickness of the fish. During the last 2 minutes of grilling, throw the corn tortillas on the grill, flipping halfway. The corn, fish and tortillas should be ready around the same time.
Cut the kernals off the cob. Toss with the tomato, salt and cilantro. Assemble tacos with cabbage, a piece of fish, a spoonful of sauce, grilled corn/tomato, a squeeze of lime and a sprinkling of pepitas.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Buy firm fleshed fish 3/4″ thick, otherwise the fish will come apart on the grill. For thinner fillets, cook the fish in a frying pan. To prevent the fish from sticking to the grill grates, make sure your grates get a good scrubbing.
You can also pour a little oil on a paper towels and wipe on the grates.
The fish will be coated in some olive oil to also prevent sticking.

I have not yet tried to use fresh trout, It is a softer meat but can be grilled well and the biggest reason for using a firm fish is for the ease of grilling.
