Grilled Fish Tacos

1 cup Vidalia onion, diced
1/4 cup cilantro, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/4 cup basil, chopped
1/4 cup scallions, diced
1 large lime, zested and juiced
1/4 cup orange juice
drizzle of olive oil
1 1/2 lbs tilapia fillets

Pat dry fish fillets and season with salt and pepper. Combine all ingredients (except fish) in a bowl, then transfer to a shallow baking dish and add fish. Give it a toss to marinate fish, then cover and chill for 30 minutes. Turn fish and chill another 30 minutes. While fish is marinating, combine and set aside:

1/2 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons lime juice
and prep:
1/2 small head red cabbage, sliced thin
1 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup cilantro, diced
2 avocados, peeled and sliced
1 large tomato, diced
2 limes, cut into wedges
corn tortillas

Set all ingredients on a platter and keep cool.
Set grill to medium high, and oil the grate. Grill fish about 4 minutes per side, and let some of the marinate stick, to add more flavor. When done, break fish into chunky flakes, and place on small platter. Serve with lime sour cream, and chilled platter. Serves 4

The four of us gave this dish a thumbs up. A light yet satisfying meal. Next time I will add a little kick to the tilapia. Will try to email a picture, very nice presentation.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
