Description

This recipe has a combination of sweet and spicy flavors, topped with a fresh citrus cabbage slaw.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE FISH:
  • 3 pounds Salmon Fillets
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • _____
  • FOR THE SLAW:
  • ¼ cups Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
  • ¼ cups Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • ½ cups Canola Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • ¼ cups Chopped Fresh Basil
  • ¼ cups Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon Reserved Rub
  • 1 bag (14 Oz) Shredded Cole Slaw
  • _____
  • FOR THE ASSEMBLY:
  • 1 package Corn Tortillas (8-10 Count)

Preparation

For the fish:
Combine all of the dry/rub ingredients and reserve 1 tablespoon for slaw. Use the remaining rub to coat both sides of fish fillets. Place seasoned fish fillets on preheated grill and close lid. Grill over high heat with the lid closed for about 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. Use a wide, metal fish spatula to flip over and continue grilling for another 3 to 5 minutes. Cover with foil to keep warm.

For slaw:
Combine all ingredients except the bag of slaw in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well. In a medium bowl, dress slaw to taste, using whatever amount of dressing you desire. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve on tacos. Make sure to toss the slaw right before serving. (Fresh habaneros, seeded and diced are great added to the dressing, if you want to spice it up!)

For Tacos:
Break apart fish into rustic large chunks and place on a warmed tortillas and garnish with dressed citrus slaw. Serve immediately.

To warm tortillas:
Dampen a clean kitchen towel with water and loosely wrap tortillas. If placing in the oven to warm, wrap again with aluminum foil. Otherwise, you can warm them in the microwave in the damp towel for just a minute or so.

We had these for dinner last night & they were wonderful! I served them with slices of avocado & jalepeno for just the right finishing touch. These go in the “great for guests” file!
