Start your barbecue or campfire. Place the corn and jalapeno on a grill rack over medium heat and cook for about 10 minutes. Put the pieces of fish on a plate. Squeeze 1/2 a lime and drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the fillets, then cover all sides with chili powder, salt and cumin.

Place the prepared fillets on a grill basket and cook for 3 minutes per side or until cooked. Remove from heat and set aside.

Arrange the tacos by placing the fish and salsa in tortillas. Serve with potato chips and season with hot sauce if you like.
