Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Make the dressing by combining the avocado, yogurt, garlic, lime juice, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a blender. Blend until creamy (the dressing will be thick), then cover and refrigerate the dressing while you make the salad.

  • Preheat the grill for 10 minutes on medium heat. Prepare the foil packets by placing two halibut fillets on each sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil. Squeeze the lime juice atop the fillets, then sprinkle them with the cumin and a pinch of salt and pepper. Fold and crimp the edges together to form sealed foil packets.

  • Place the foil packets on the grill, close the lid and grill the fish for 8 to 10 minutes or just until the fish flakes easily and is opaque throughout. Remove the foil packets from the grill and unwrap them.

  • Prepare the taco salad by layering the lettuce, beans, cheese, tomatoes and tortilla strips on serving plates. Arrange the grilled fish on top of the salads, drizzle with the avocado dressing and serve.

Reynolds Kitchens Tip

Make Reynolds Wrap(R) Aluminum Foil packets to cook seafood perfectly and seal in flavor.

Made this for my family and they LOVED it! The dressing is delightfully smooth and fresh, and made more than enough so we used it as a dip later. I substituted nondairy yogurt for real yogurt and talapia for the halibut and it still tasted delicious. I didn't have a grill so I made a large foil packet, sealed it well, placed it in a baking dish and baked it at 350 until the fish was flakey. I also skipped the tortilla strips and used taco bowls instead. I will definitely be making this again. Read More

So upon reading this recipe I thought it would taste really good and it did not disappoint. I did make a couple of changes though mainly to how I did the halibut. I did the halibut in the foil packs however I baked mine as opposed to grilling them. In addition instead of placing a whole piece of halibut on top I opted to flake it all over the salad. I found this to be better as the fish was everywhere but really it is a matter of personal choice. Otherwise the ingredients as listed were perfect. If you like more garlic add it in. I had two big garlic in it and that was plenty. If you plan on flaking it as I did you may not need as much halibut as noted. The avocado dressing was excellent. Read More

Followed the recipe except I used haddock and mixed italian blend cheeses, just based on what I had. Blended the beans a bit just so they weren't whole as my toddlers won't eat them that way..all in all, was a very nice salad. Read More

Although I didn't make the avocado sauce part, I did bake the fish in foil (in oven at 350 for 20 minutes) with the cumin spices, I liked that part and next time I'll add the avocado with it. Read More
