Grilled Fish Tacos with Slaw


Grilled Fish Tacos with Slaw

Introduction

From EatingWell
Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed chile rub and grill it instead. Make sure the fillets are no more than 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick so they cook quickly. Sometimes flipping fish on the grill can be tricky since the fish can stick to the grill or fall apart.

Ingredients

    Adobo-Rubbed Fish

    4 teaspoons chili powder, preferably made with New Mexico or ancho chiles
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    2 pounds mahi-mahi or Pacific halibut (see Note), 1/2-3/4 inch thick, skinned and cut into 4 portions

    Coleslaw
    1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
    1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
    1 teaspoon lime zest
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    3 cups finely shredded red or green cabbage

    12 corn tortillas, warmed

Directions

1.To prepare fish: Combine chili powder, lime juice, oil, cumin, onion powder, garlic power, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub adobo rub all over fish. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes for the fish to absorb the flavor.

2.To prepare coleslaw: Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, sugar, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; mix until smooth and creamy. Add cabbage and toss to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

3.Preheat grill to medium-high.

4.Oil the grill rack (see Tip) or use a grilling basket. Grill the fish until it is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the fish to a platter and separate into large chunks.

5.Serve the tacos family-style by passing the fish, tortillas, coleslaw and taco garnishes separately
