 Fish Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Slaw

Makes 6 servings

 Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1-½ pounds cod fillets
  • Freshly grated zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag coleslaw mix
  • 2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded and cut into ½-inch dice
  • 2 scallions, white and green parts, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Olive oil in a pump sprayer
  • 12 (6-inchj) corn tortillas, warmed
  • Lime wedges, for serving
  • Directions:
  1. Whisk together the lime juice and chili powder in a shallow glass or ceramic baking dish.  Add the cod and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate while making the slaw.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime zest and juice and mayonnaise.  Add the coleslaw mix, tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and salt and mix well.  Set aside.
  3. Spray a large nonstick skillet with oil and heat over medium-high heat.  Remove the fish from the baking dish, letting the excess juice drip back into the dish.  Place in the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until opaque when flaked in the thickest part with the tip of a knife, about 8 minutes.  Transfer to a serving bowl and flake into large chunks with a fork.
  4. For each serving, spoon some fish and slaw on a tortilla, then fold and eat, with a squeeze of lime juice, if you wish.
