Fish Tacos with Avocado Cream


For the tacos
  • 1 pound haddock (any firm white fish will work), cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle powder
  • 1 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
For the slaw
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, shredded
  • 1/4 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
For the avocado cream
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 green onion, trimmed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For serving
  • 1 package corn tortillas, warmed
  • Feta for sprinkling on top, optional

Preparation Instructions

  1. Marinate the fish—Place fish in medium bowl, add 1 tablespoon lime juice, chipotle, and garlic powder and toss to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the slaw—In a medium bowl, stir together red cabbage, onion, lime juice, olive oil, and cilantro. Set aside.
  3. Make the avocado cream—Using a traditional or immersion blender, blend avocado flesh with lime juice, yogurt, green onion, and a little salt and pepper till smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  4. Cook the fish—Heat olive oil in frypan over medium heat. Fry marinated fish until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes each side.
  5. Assemble and enjoy—Place a scoop of avocado cream on a warm tortilla, then add a piece of fish or two. Top with a small handful of slaw and a sprinkle of feta, if desired.


Warm Tortillas—3 Ways

Our favorite method for warming tortillas is in a dry ceramic non-stick skillet on the stovetop over medium heat. Cook until they begin to brown, about 30 seconds per side. You can also wrap stacks of 5 tortillas in aluminum foil and heat them in a 350 degree F oven for about 15 minutes. Or if you’re feeling hangry, zap them in the microwave. Simply cover a stack of 5 with a damp paper towel and microwave in 30-second increments until they’re heated through.
