For the Marinade:

  • 1/2 cup Schell’s Hefeweizen (The rest is to enjoy with the meal!)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1/2 small orange
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 lb cod or tilapia

For the Salsa:

  • 2 kiwi, peeled and diced
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno, diced (and seeded, if desired)
  • Small handful of cilantro, chopped
  • For serving
  • 4-6 Small flour tortillas


  1. Heat grill to medium-high.
  2. Place marinade ingredients in a large zippered bag, add fish, and let sit in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Combine the salsa ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  4. Put the marinade in a medium sauce pan or pot over high heat, bring to a boil, and let reduce to ~1/4 cup.
  5. Grill the fish ~4-5 minutes per side, until it’s opaque in the center and flakes easily.
  6. To serve, top tortillas with flaked fish, a scoop of salsa, and a drizzle of the beer reduction.
