Fish Tacos with Cilantro Slaw

Serves 6

For the cilantro slaw:

½ head cabbage, either green or red, thinly sliced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
½ red pepper or some carrots, thin julienne
½ bunch cilantro, coarsely chopped
2 Tablespoons orange juice (I didn’t have any so I pureed a ripe pluot)
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
A little fresh lime juice

For the fish tacos:

1 pound halibut fillets
About 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
1 Tablespoon canola oil

Whole wheat flour or stone ground corn 8” tortillas

Mix all the slaw ingredients in a large bowl and let sit for 15 minutes. Season the fish fillet with a little salt and pepper. Liberally coat the first side with ancho chili powder. Heat the canola oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Sprinkle some salt and pepper from a height in the hot oil also. This really helps keep the fish from sticking. Cook the fillet ancho side down. Sprinkle the top with the remaining ancho chili. Fish takes about 10 minutes per inch of thickness to cook no matter how you do it. So guess what half the total cooking time should be for one side and don’t try to turn the fillet before then. Heat the tortillas. Flake the cooked fish and place in the tortillas. Top with the slaw. Enjoy.
