Tequila-Glazed Halibut Tacos

Tequila Glaze
1 jalapeno (with seeds), finely chopped
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup tequila
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Avocado Salsa
1 medium avocado
2 tbsp red onion, fine dice
1/2 cup quartered grape tomatoes (red or yellow)
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, fine dice
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tsp cumin, powder
salt, kosher, to taste
1/2 tbsp canola oil
1 1/2 lb halibut
12 corn tortillas



To make the glaze: combine all the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until glaze has reduced by half.  Remove from heat and let cool.


To make the salsa:  combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.


For the fish:  heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Turn the heat down to medium and add the oil.  Season the halibut with salt and pepper and add to the pan. Cook for about 5-8 minutes on the first side or until golden brown.  Turn the fish over and cook on the other side for 2-4 minutes, or until cooked through.  Baste with the glaze during the last few minutes of cooking.


Wrap the corn tortillas in a damp kitchen towel and microwave until warm and pliable, 30 - 45 seconds.  Layer the tortillas with fish and salsa.
