What can be better for the weeknight chef or dinner party host. Here is a fast, simple and delicious take on fish tacos. The marinade is a simple concoction of colorado  sauce and beer that works its magic in only 10 minutes — incidentally, the same amount of time it takes to preheat the grill. The great thing about cooking with fish is it’s a low fuss meat.  It will thaw quickly and cook even quicker. This recipe works great with Alaskan Rockfish or Alaskan Cod. Cook the fish hot and fast on the grill or under a broiler is best. Or try in a hot saute pan for a nice finishing crust. Bonn appetite!
