Mahi Mahi Tacos with homemade Slaw
1). 1 pound firm white fish such as ( tilapia, mahi mahi,cod or cat fish)
2). 2 medium limes (halved)
3).1 Medium garlic clove ( finely chopped)
4). 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
5). 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
6). 2 tablespoons olive oil
7). Kosher salt
8). Freshly ground black pepper
9). 1/2 small head of green or red cabbage (about 4 ounces), cored and thinly sliced
10). 1/2 medium red onion ( thinly sliced)
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
6-8 soft 6 inch corn tortillas
Guacamole for garnish ( optional)
Salsa for garnish ( optional)
Fage Greek yogurt as a sour cream and increase in protein ( optional)
Place the fish in a baking dish and squeeze a lime all over it. Add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and turn the fish in the marinade until evenly coated. Refrigerate and let marinate at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the slaw and warm the tortillas.
Combine the cabbage, onion and cilantro in a large bowl and squeeze lime all over it. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary; set aside
Warm tortillas! Wrap the warm tortillas in a clean dishcloth and set aside while you prepare the fish.
Brush the grates of the grill pan or outdoor grill with oil and heat over medium- high heat until hot. Remove the fish from marinade and place it on the grill.
Cook without moving until underside of the fish has grill marks and is white and opaque on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip and grill the other side until white and opaque about 2 to 3 minutes more. ( It’s ok if it breaks apart while you are flipping.). Transfer the fish to a plate.
Taste the slaw again and season as needed with more lime juice. Slice the remaining lime halves into wedges and serve with the tacos. To construct a taco, break up the some of the cooked fish, place it in a warm tortilla, and top it with slaw and any optional garnishes.
