Description

I love a good taco, and this recipe combines delicious, fresh fish with crispy vegetables and bright, vibrant flavors. If you like, you can also serve these tacos with Tofu Sour Cream.

Ingredients

  • 8 corn tortillas (or flour -- gluten-free if you use corn tortillas)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (plus 2 teaspoons)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice ((about 2 limes))
  • sea salt
  • 1/2 head red cabbage (small, thinly shredded)
  • 1 serrano peppers (minced)
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 14 ounces catfish fillets (preferably one whole fillet)
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • avocado (for topping, as desired)
  • salsa (for topping, as desired)
  • lime wedges (for topping, as desired)
  • fresh cilantro (for topping, as desired)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 ° F. Stack the tortillas in the center of a sheet of foil Wrap loosely to close. Place in the oven to heat while you prepare the fish and slaw. Alternatively, you can heat the tortillas on a grill just before you’re ready to serve the tacos.
  2. Prepare the slaw: In a medium bowl, whisk 1⁄4 of the olive oil and the lime juice until well-combined. Season with salt. Add the cabbage, serrano pepper, and cilantro; toss until fully coated. Let sit at room temperature while you cook the fish.
  3. Season the fillet with salt and pepper.
  4. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Carefully place the fish in the pan. Cook, undisturbed, until lightly golden on the underside, 6 to 7 minutes. Turn the fish over and continue cooking until lightly golden and opaque in the center, 6 to 7 minutes more depending on thickness.
  5. To serve, arrange the catfish, slaw, ad desired toppings on a large platter. Serve family style, letting everyone assemble their own tacos.
