ALASKA POLLOCK TACOS

Prep Time: 20     Cook Time: 10

Servings: 6

Salsa: Cut oranges and avocados into ½-inch chunks. Combine with lime juice, onions, and cilantro in bowl. Add pepper flakes and salt to taste; set aside. 

Pollock: Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Pollock fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of fillets with oil. Place fillets in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

Turn fillets over; cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 2 to 5 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.

Season with lemon pepper. Sprinkle fillets with lime juice; break into small chunks. Spoon whitefish chunks and approximately 2/3 cup salsa onto a double layer of tortillas. Fold over to serve.
