Cucumber Sauce

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 ½ cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Dill – fresh if you have it
  • Salt & Pepper

Fish Tacos

  • 1 lb cod, about ½ to ¾ inch thick
  • Dizzy Pig® Fajita-Ish
  • ½ stick butter
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • Lettuce
  • Tortillas (corn or flour)
  • Enchilada sauce
  • 1 lime


Make the Cucumber Sauce at least a couple hours before you need it.

  1. Peel, remove the seeds and dice 1 cucumber. Dump it in a colander and sprinkle with about a teaspoon of salt. This will draw out some of the water. Let sit for 30 minutes or so then pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Chop cucumber & the garlic clove fine in a food processor.
  3. Stir them into the Greek yogurt with the lemon juice, a teaspoon of fresh dill and about ½ a teaspoon of pepper. Refrigerate for a couple hours.
  4. Before serving, taste it – if you think it needs more salt or pepper or anything – add it.
  5. Dice the avocado (discarding any seeds) and the tomato, toss together and refrigerate.
  6. Dust off your old iron skillet and get it HOT.
  7. Coat cod with butter and liberally dust with Dizzy Pig Fajita-Ish. Drop it in the pan and be prepared for the sizzling. It may even smoke a bit. It’s OK. When one side is done (look for crispy blackening) flip it & do the other side. It’ll only take a couple minutes per side.

To assemble:

  1. Spoon about a tablespoon of cucumber sauce on a warm tortilla – corn or flour! Add a couple chunks of your blackened cod pieces & squeeze a little lime juice on it. Top with the avocado tomato stuff, some shredded lettuce and drizzle with enchilada sauce!
