{fish tacos w/ spicy red cabbage + a cool white sauce}


This easy recipe delivers on taste!!!  In fact, Mister made me promise to make this again soon. Here's what I did....I used cod (but any hearty white fish could work). As I love bringing the flavors of all the dishes together, I pulled the spices from the red cabbage slaw below.  On each fillet, I sprinkled a bit of oregano, cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper and then dusted with a bit of flour. Then I put it in a hot, hot skillet with a bit of oil and cooked until golden and delicious.  As for the rest...

 white sauce:
1/2 C plain yogurt
1/2 C mayo
1 lime - juiced
1 jalapeño - minced
1 tsp capers - minced
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dill weed
1 tsp cayenne pepper


*Combine and refrigerate until needed.  Best if made in advance, as it will have time to 'firm up' in the fridge.
 
spicy red cabbage slaw:



1/4 red cabbage, thinly sliced or shredded
1/8 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 2 limes {one and a half....if super juicy}
hot pepper sauce, to taste

*Combine and refrigerate until needed.


The fish tacos are perfectly piled, as such: white corn tortillas, some of the red cabbage, perfectly moist fish, white sauce and a bit of cilantro.  Miam. Miam. {Yum!}

As I mentioned before, I'm a firm believer in serving complimentary side dishes.  And particularly bringing similar flavors across the plate.  So, as for what to serve with these tacos..I made a cold mexican salad: diced tomato, avocado, red onion, cilantro and a bit of lime juice.  (It's great eaten as a fork or dipped up with chips.)

Happy foodie friday lovelies and Bon Appétit ! ;)

This looks so good! We were on a taco kick here a while back, but I found them a little boring - black beans and cheese. That sauce sounds and slaw sound like just the thing. And by the way, of course you may post the cold remedy any time you like. :)
