    Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw and Cilantro Lime Crema

    August 25, 2020

    Fish Tacos are one of the most popular menu items at restaurants today and you can find them in many forms: small bites, appetizers, on the “Skinny” menu or a full-fledged meal.

    My favorite fish to use is the 365 Brand Breaded Fish Sticks from Whole Foods. They are exceptional and turn out great every single time.  You can use any small fish stick, or fish filets.

    Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw and Cilantro Lime Crema

    Ingredients:

    For the Crema:

    1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

    1/4 chopped fresh cilantro

    4 tablespoons fat-free or vegan mayo (I prefer Vegan)

    1 teaspoon grated lime rind

    The juice of one lime

    1 garlic clove, minced (I used 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)

    For the Tacos:

    1 1/2 tsp. chili powder

    1 teaspoon ground cumin

    1 teaspoon ground coriander

    1/2  teaspoon salt

    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

    15 -20 breaded fish sticks (plan on using 2-3 per taco) and they make great leftovers

    Red Cabbage Slaw:

    1-2 cups shredded red cabbage

    1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

    1 cup chopped cilantro

    The juice from one lime

    8-10 6 inch tortillas

    pinch of cumin, salt and pepper

    Garnishes: Avocado slices, tomato slices, cucumber slices, extra cilantro

    Instructions:

    Place fish sticks in a large glass dish coated in cooking spray. Combine the spices and sprinkle evenly over fish.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes (follow directions on package if using fish sticks). Removed from oven and, if using filets, break into bite-sized pieces with a fork.

    While your fish is cooking, make the crema and slaw:

    For the crema, combine all the ingredients together and mix well. You can use a food processor (without the green onions) and you will get a great green-color to your sauce. Add onions after you have processed. Refrigerate.

    For the Slaw, add all ingredients to a bowl, stir. Adjust spices and lime as necessary according to taste.

    Heat tortillas over an open flame until warm and just getting browned on both sides. Layer on fish sticks, slaw and crema. Add additional avocado slices, tomatoes, or cucumber (adds a very fresh taste and crunch).

    Be prepared to make seconds!

    Enjoy!
