  • 2 lbs skirt steak about 1/2 inch thick
  • water
  • coarse sea salt
  • 1 recipe Grilled Corn Salsa*
  • pico de gallo
  • warmed corn tortillas or flour tortillas
  • sour cream
  • grated cheese
  • blue cheese if you're feeling adventurous
  • avocado
  • cilantro
  • any other desired toppings


  • Remove skirt steaks from fridge and bring to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat outdoor grill to a medium flame.
  • Generously sprinkle both sides of meat with salt and massage into meat. Place on grill and douse with a little water. This will help the salt dissolve and seep into the meat. Once the one side is browned well with grill marks, turn over, sprinkle on more water and salt. Cook this side until browned and grill marks appear.
  • Continue turning, dousing and sprinkling until meat is cooked to desired doneness. Remove from grill, cover with foil and rest 7-10 minutes.
  • Slice across the grain into thin slices. Serve in warm tortillas with corn salsa, pico, and any other desired toppings.
