Description

Fish tacos with a creamy avocado-cabbage slaw.

Ingredients

  • ½ pounds Firm White Fish Fillets, Such As Cod Or Tilapia
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Lime Zest
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Cilantro, Plus More For Garnish
  • ¼ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 pinches Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • Kosher Salt And Pepper To Taste
  • 4 whole Corn Or Flour Tortillas
  • 1 cup Chunky Salsa
  • Lime Wedges
  • FOR THE SLAW:
  • 1 cup Ripe Avocado, Diced
  • ¼ cups Mexican Crema, Or Sour Cream
  • ¼ cups Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
  • ½ whole Jalapeno Pepper, Finely Diced And Seeded
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • ½ Tablespoons Agave Or Honey
  • Kosher Salt And Pepper To Taste
  • 2 cups Shredded Cabbage

Preparation

In a shallow dish, coat the fish with garlic, lime zest, cilantro, red pepper flakes, cumin, and oil. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Allow to marinate for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.

For the slaw, in a blender, puree the avocado, crema, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, lime juice and agave until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the cabbage with a few spoonfuls of the avocado puree until lightly coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Preheat the oven broiler and arrange the marinated fish on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet a few inches away from the broiler, and broil the fish for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the fish becomes opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

Warm the tortillas. Divide the fish, salsa and slaw amongst the tortillas. Sprinkle each taco with the extra chopped cilantro and serve warm with lime wedges on the side.

I can’t wait to try this one, I’m a Fish Taco Freak!
I think I’ll use Mahi-Mahi or Cod, Blackened? We’ll see.

The avocado slaw was delicious! I was eating it by the spoonful! All I had was plain organic yogurt (instead of sour cream) and I think it was still superb!
