ALMACO JACK SKINNY FAJITAS

Ingredients:

4 3-ounce Almaco Jack fish fillets

1/2 cup white wine

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

2 teaspoons seafood seasoning

8 mini peppers, sliced

1 sweet onion, sliced

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

Fresh cilantro, for garnish

Lime wedges, for garnish

Instructions:

In a glass baking dish, arrange fish fillets in a single layer. Pour white wine over top. Coat each fish with a thin layer of mayonnaise. Sprinkle seafood seasoning on top. Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes; turn occasionally. Meanwhile, prepare the gas grill for medium heat, approximately 350°. Transfer each fish fillet to the grill rack. Discard marinade. Close the grill cover. Cook 4 minutes; carefully flip and cook 4 minutes longer. Transfer fish to a platter. The fish will flake easily when done. Cook the vegetables at the same time by using a grill pan. Allow vegetables to char. Serve fajitas with flour tortillas, side salad, and guacamole. Garnish with fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
