Fish Tacos with Watermelon

Fish Tacos with Watermelon (Yield: 4 servings)
The fish in this recipe is grilled and a great source of lean protein. Extra virgin olive oil and avocado contribute some healthy fats to this dish. This recipe also includes a watermelon salsa which is a great way to not only get more fruit into your diet, but to get in more vitamin C, magnesium, fiber, potassium and lycopene! This recipe is perfect for a warm weather cookout or picnic.
Ingredients:
• 4 cups diced seedless watermelon
• 1/2 small red onion, finely diced
• 1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
• Juice of 2 limes, plus lime wedges for serving
• 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
• 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
• Kosher salt
• 1 pound of skinless wild striped bass fillets
• 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
• 1 romaine lettuce heart, thinly sliced
• 8 corn tortillas
• 1 avocado, sliced
Directions:
1. Make the watermelon salsa by combining the watermelon, red onion, cilantro, lime juice and jalapeno in a bowl. Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon salt and set aside.
2. Preheat a grill to high. Drizzle both sides of the fish with the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil and sprinkle with chile powder. Brush the grill with olive oil, then add the fish and grill until marked and cooked through (4-5 minutes per side). Transfer the fish to a plate and break into bite-sized pieces.
3. Toss the lettuce with 2 tablespoons of the juices from the watermelon salsa. Warm the tortillas on the grill and fill with the fish, watermelon salsa, avocado and lettuce and serve with lime wedges.
