 1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce

 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 

2 garlic cloves, minced 

1 teaspoon dried oregano

 1 teaspoon ground cumin 

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

 1/4 teaspoon cayenne 

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 

1 pound skinned Pacific rockfish fillets

 8 corn tortillas (6 in. wide)

 2 ears corn, husks, and silks removed 

1/2 avocado, sliced 1 cup finely shredded red cabbage 

1/2 cup cilantro leaves

How to Make It

Heat a grill to high (450° to 550°). In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and Sriracha; chill. In a glass pie pan or baking dish, combine oil, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, cayenne, and pepper. Turn fish in seasoned oil to coat. Seal tortillas in foil.

Grill corn, covered and turning a few times, until lightly charred, 8 to 12 minutes total. Five minutes after putting corn on the grill, set a large cast-iron skillet or another ovenproof frying pan on the cooking grate. After a few minutes, put fish in hot skillet and tortilla packet on the grate. Cook, turning fish and tortillas once until fish is no longer translu­cent in the center (3 to 5 minutes) and tortillas are hot (4 to 5 minutes). Transfer to aboard.

Cut kernels off corn in slabs. Spread tortillas with some of Sriracha mayo and put the rest in a small dish. Fill tortillas with chunks of fish, avocado, cabbage, cilantro, and corn. Serve more Sriracha mayo on the side.
