Fish Tacos with Purple Cabbage Slaw (serves 6)


Prep slaw:

1/2 head red cabbage, sliced thin (or a bag of fresh shredded coleslaw mix to substitute for cabbage and carrots).

2 carrots, grated

4 green onions, sliced thin

1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/4 cup canola oil

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1/2 fresh lime juice (1 tablespoon)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Place vegetables and cilantro in a large serving bowl. Whisk together the remaining ingredients for the dressing. Pour dressing over vegetables. Toss to coat and place in refrigerator until ready to eat (or up to 2 days).

Prep fish:

1-1/2 pounds halibut, tilapia, or cod fillets, cut into 6 equal pieces

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 clove garlic, minced

Measure oil, spices, salt, and garlic in a shallow bowl and mix well. Coat fish and set aside while heating 1 teaspoon oil in non-stick skillet. Cook fish for 3 minutes and turn. Cook an additional 3 minutes or until fish is opaque and breaks easily. If you need to cook in batches, place cooked fish on a clean plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Assemble tacos:

12 small corn/whole grain tortillas, warmed

2 ripe avocados, diced

Purple cabbage slaw recipe

Salsa and plain non-fat Greek yogurt

Place a tortilla flat on a plate. Assemble taco with 1/4 cup slaw, 1/2 piece fish, and additional toppings, as desired. Repeat for each tortilla and individual taste. Enjoy!!
