The best way to pick out fish

Confession time – before I tried these grilling packs, I had never bought seafood over the counter.

I know, I know, I was definitely missing out! I always felt so intimidated by all the options and choices and I didn’t want to seem like a complete newbie when it came to picking out seafood.

BUT – after learning about the Easy for You Seafood they offer at Kroger, I finally felt brave enough to take a chance. And let me tell you this: it wasn’t painful, it wasn’t scary, and it was wayyyyy tastier than the frozen seafood I usually buy.

The sweet guy behind the seafood counter was incredibly patient, understanding, and very knowledgable about what fish would be best for what I wanted.

In short – the best way to pick out seafood? Ask for help from the people who know their stuff!

Easy for You Grilling Packs

The secret to these tacos is the Easy for You Seafood Grilling Packs – they will literally make your life a breeze!

When you go up to the seafood counter at your local Kroger store, just ask them to package your seafood in a grilling pack. You can pick out your fish, pick out what seasonings you’d like on it, and then add some fresh herbs, butter, and citrus.

With some suggestions from the guy at the counter, I settled on tilapia (which is the fish most commonly used when making fish tacos) with a Sriracha seasoning, lemon slices, and rosemary.

They assemble it behind the counter and seal it, then hand it to you in a package with cooking instructions for grilling (they also have alternative instructions for baking in the oven if you’d rather do that!).

It was seriously simple, and the total cost was way less than I thought it would be.

I came home, threw it on the grill, and it was ready in 12 minutes. The fish flaked beautifully when I pressed my fork into it, and it wasn’t overdone in the slightest.

And if you’re ordering online using ClickList or Instacart for delivery, just type “Easy for You Seafood” into the search bar, and they’ll do it for you without even going into the store!

How to make Avocado Cilantro Dressing

While my tilapia was grilling directly in the foil pack, I whipped up some avocado cilantro sauce to add to the tacos. In a high power blender (or food processor), I mixed together:

  • one half an avocado
  • one half cup of plain greek yogurt
  • one fourth cup of cilantro
  • the juice of one lime
  • two tablespoons milk

It was the perfect topping and complimented the sriracha seasoned tilapia perfectly.
