2 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 Cup olive oil or vegetable oil

1 Pound skinless white fish such as cod, monkfish or halibut

  • 1

    Make the marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, mustard, salt, and pepper. While whisking, slowly stream in the oil until emulsified, then whisk in the garlic.

  • 2

    Place the fish in a resealable bag. Pour the marinade into the bag, turning to coat the fish evenly. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • 3

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 400℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    400 ˚F / 204 ˚C

  • 4

    Remove the fish from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the marinade. Season the fish generously on both sides with Traeger Veggie Rub.

  • 5

    Arrange the fish directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook until the fish is opaque and flakes easily when nudged with a fork, 10-15 minutes (no need to flip the fish). During the last 5 minutes of cooking, place the corn tortillas on the grill to warm.
