I think game 7 of the ALCS tonight, calls for tacos, or possibly game 7 of the NLCS tomorrow night, or perhaps game 1 of the World Series on Friday night, or whenever the hell you want to make them.

1. Marinate the fish in the oil, lime juice and zest, jalapeno, garlic, green onion, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper for 10-20 minutes.
