White, flaky fish—like halibut, tilapia, or cod—can be an extremely lean and somewhat affordable source of heart-healthy protein. The only thing is, grilling it or broiling it, and then serving it up with a side of vegetables, can get real old…real fast.
That’s why we asked Spencer Rubin, founder of NYC’s Melt Shop, to show us his way around a piece of fresh cod. And his answer to our request was this recipe for Deal Closing Fish Tacos, which—when served up with a little spicy salsa and a strong margarita—make the perfect third-date meal.
