Baja Fish Tacos

Total Active time approx 20-30 minutes Fish Tacos

This is a recipe inspired by the Fish taco recipe in the June 2010 Food Network magazine. I “cleaned” it up a little, but it is virtually the same recipe.

Directions

1/4 red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 Cups)
1/2 C fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lime (or approx 3 Tbsp of lime juice)
2 Tbsp honey (or agave nectar)
1/2 C Plain Greek yogurt (or any plain yogurt will do, Greek yogurt is just chunkier so it resembles the mayo that is normally used for slaw)
Kosher salt
Toss the above ingredients to make the slaw
—————————
10-12 Corn Tortillas (we used white corn and wheat blend tortillas)
1 Hass avocado, sliced
1/2 C fresh salsa

Fish

I used the ready breaded frozen fillets and then seasoned them with chili powder. Baked for 12 minutes on one side then flipped for a remaining 7 minutes.

To bread your own you need about 1.25 lbs skinless halibut, 3/4 cup flour, chili powder, garlic salt and ground peppercorn.

Tortillas were warmed on a skillet as needed so we always got them hot off the griddle.
Served with steamed corn on the cob – yummmm my favorite!
