Happy Monday, Plus Delicious Spicy Fish Tacos with Cole Slaw and Lime Crema

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We’re at my parent’s lake house.  I love the serene boat rides along the lake and watching the kids have fun.

Spicy Fish Tacos with Cole Slaw and Lime Crema

These are easy to make and are great to make on the grill.  I mentioned how much my husband loves his new grill and I rarely had to cook dinner this summer {bonus!}.  You won’t be disappointed with this recipe.


2 lbs snapper fillets

salt and pepper

2 tsp paprika

½ tsp cayenne

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp canola oil

For cabbage slaw:

4 cups (loosely packed) shredded cabbage

⅓ cup chopped cilantro

2 green onions, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

3 tbsp distilled white vinegar

1 tsp kosher salt

2 tsp white sugar

For lime crema:

⅓ cup sour cream

3 tbsp mayonnaise

juice and zest of 1 lime

salt, to taste

warmed tortillas (corn or wheat), for serving

  1. Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine paprika, cayenne, garlic powder and cumin. Sprinkle over fish on both sides. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a grill pan on medium-high heat. Add half of the fish and cook until the edges are opaque, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until fish flakes easily with fork, and is just ever-so-slightly translucent (it will finish cooking with the residual heat). Transfer fish to a plate and repeat with remaining fish.
  2. To make cabbage slaw, toss all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. To make crema, whisk all ingredients together and season to taste with salt.
  4. Serve fish in warmed tortillas with cabbage slaw and a drizzle of crema.
yield: 6-8 tacos

Wishing you a wonderful week!
