Servings 8 tacos
- 1 lbs cod fillets wild-caught
- 8 corn tortillas
- 1.5 cups green cabbage
- 1.5 cups red cabbage
- 2 tbsp fajita seasoning
- 3 tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 green or spring onion
- 1/2 cup cilantro fresh
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
- 1.5 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp hot sauce
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt kosher
Preheat the grill on medium-heat (375 - 450 degrees F).
Wash the fish and pat it dry with a paper towel.
Spread a bit olive oil on the fish to make the seasoning stick.
Sprinkle fajita seasoning on both sides of each fillet.
Place fish on cooking grates but not directly over flames. Cook for approximately 4 minutes. Flip it and cook for about another 2-4 minutes depending on how browned it is.
Once the fish reaches an internal temperature of 130 F, remove it and break the fillets apart with forks. Set aside.
Slice all the cabbage into thin slices or grate it for the slaw.
In a bowl, mix the sliced cabbage, lime juice, and spring onion. You can add a 1/2 tsp of salt for flavoring.
Char or warm the tortillas on the grill for a few seconds.
Now add the fish and slaw into each tortilla and top with the sauce and fresh chopped cilantro.
- You can use 1-2 lbs of fish, depending on the size of your tortillas. If they're the larger kind of tortilla you'll need more fish and more cabbage. Adjust seasonings accordingly.
- If you can't find cod, use any fresh white fish fillets for a similar mild fishy flavor.
- Add more kosher salt to the fish if your fajita seasoning doesn't have salt.
