Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw
Last night D and I made some really tasty fish tacos with a red cabbage slaw. The fish was grouper caught off the coast of NC (according to the guy at the Capital Fish Market), and the slaw is made form a combination of veggies from my garden and the NC farmer's market... see below.
For the Fish:
-1-lb fillet of grouper (or other white fish)
-cumin, curry, salt, pepper
->Season the flower with spices to taste. Dredge the fish fillet in the seasoned flour and then brown in a pan with oil until white and flaky. Remove from pan and flake fish.
For the Slaw:
-1 c red cabbage, finely chopped
-1/2 c radishes, finely chopped
-1/4 c cilantro, chopped
-3 cloves of garlic, mashed and minced
-1/2 c red spring onions, minced
-juice of 1 lemon and 1/2 a lime
-1 Tbsp brown sugar
->Combine cabbage, radish, cilantro, garlic, and onion. Mix sugar into lemon/lime juice until dissolved. Pour over slaw. Let sit to "pickle" the slaw a bit.
-->Serve in hard taco shells by layering flaked fish, grated cheese, fresh yogurt, and slaw. Enjoy!
~*TIP: We used bottom leaves off of my cabbage plants. This way you can harvest a little at a time before it's time to harvest the whole head.*~
