Yummy in my Tummy Fish Tacos

Oh my goodness, this has got to be one of my favorite recipes ever!  I found it in a Food Network magazine.  Those magazines actually have a lot of good-lookin' recipes!

Vegetable oil, for frying
1/4 red cabbage, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup mayo
ground pepper
corn tortillas
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (we like things spicy so I added more than suggest, plus some cayenne pepper)
1 1/4 pounds fish of your choice--The recipe calls for halibut fillet, but it's way too expensive for me!  I bought tilapia instead. (cut into 2 by 1/2-inch pieces)
1 Hass avocado
1/2 cup salsa or hot sauce

1.  Heat about 3 inches vegetable oil in a medium pot over medium-low heat.  Meanwhile, toss the cabbage, cilantro, lime juice, honey, and mayo in a bowl.  Season with salt.

2.  Mix the flour, chili powder, (cayenne pepper), and salt and pepper to taste in a shallow bowl.  Dredge the fish into the flour mixture, then fry in batches until golden and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.  Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.  Season with salt.

3.  Warm the tortillas.  Halve, pit, and slice the avocado.  Fill the torillas with the fish, avocado, slaw, and salsa/hot sauce.

I didn't take any pictures myself, but here's the one from the Food Network magazine. :)

Note: I'm no health nut, so fried food=good food!  However, I'm sure you could bake the fish if you so wish.

  1. I made these tonight and Oh my gosh! They were so good! The kiddos even ate them up! I added jalapeƱo, pineapple and cayenne to the slaw but other than that followed exactly. Thank you for posting!
