Now he enlists daughter Charlotte, 6, and son Rocky, 3 (with wife Sarah Michelle Gellar), as sous chefs. For a kid-friendly bash, the family serves “sweet and spicy” tacos, says the actor, 40: “Sneak in watermelon for children. If they don’t like fish, tell them it’s chicken. We lie about Santa Claus; lie about this!”

Spicy Fish Tacos

Serves 4

2 cups diced seeded watermelon

1 cup diced seeded cucumber

2 limes

3 tbsp olive oil

1½ lbs tilapia or any other flaky white fish fillets

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper 

1 fresh Thai or serrano chili, thinly sliced

8 small flour or corn tortillas (6-inch diameter), warmed 

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

½ cup fresh cilantro leaves (optional)

1. In a medium bowl, combine the watermelon and cucumber. Squeeze in the juice from the limes. Mix well and refrigerate.

2. In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Season the fish with the salt and pepper. Add fish to the skillet and top with a few slivers of the chili. Heat until cooked through, about 4 minutes. Flip and add a few chili slivers. Continue cooking until the fish easily flakes apart into pieces with a fork.

3. Place the fish on a cutting board. Add a few pieces to a warm tortilla. Top with a sprinkle of cheese, a spoonful of the watermelon-cucumber mixture, the remaining chopped chili and cilantro leaves, if desired.
