For the Slaw

1 small or ½ head purple cabbage, very thinly sliced (about 4-5 cups)

1 tablespoon olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

Juice of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)

1 teaspoon honey

For the Tacos

1 lb firm white fish (about 4 medium fillets), such as rockfish, cod, or tilapia

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon mild chili powder

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon olive oil

Sliced avocado and chopped green onions (for serving)

For the White Sauce

2 tablespoons mayonnaise or whole, plain yogurt

Juice of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)

Freshly ground black pepper


1. Heat 1 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the cabbage, sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt, and sauté, stirring frequently until softened, about 8-10 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the lime juice and honey, stirring to combine.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and  ½ teaspoon salt. Place the fish in the pan and sauté until browned and cooked through, flipping once, about 3-4 minutes per side.

3. Make the white sauce by combining the mayonnaise or yogurt, lime juice, and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.

4. Assemble the tacos by filling a corn tortilla or lettuce cup with fish and slaw. Top with sliced avocado and a drizzle of white sauce. Serve immediately.
