Cod & Cabbage Fish Tacos Recipe

Ingredients

Cod & Pickled Cabbage Tacos
Ingredients for 8 “street” fish tacos

  • Fish ingredients
    • 1 1/2 lb cod, chopped into 1-inch firm pieces
    • 2 teaspoons cumin
    • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 large avocados
  • 8 tablespoons pickled cabbage (see below)

    • fresh radish (optional)
    • fresh lime juice
Steps
  1. Season cod with oil and spices, rub it all over the filet pieces.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat.  Once hot, add olive oil.  Carefully place the cod pieces into the skillet using tongs or a spatula.  Cook on each side for 2 to 4 minutes, until the edges are seared and the sides are golden.  Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.  Increase the heat to high.
  4. Add corn tortillas to the HOT skillet and sear on each side for 1 – 2 minutes, until dark spots apear on the tortilla. After cooking on each side, place the tortillas in a warm, damp towel to soften.  Repeat.
  5. Build the taco! On a warm tortilla, spread 1-2 tablespoons of mashed avocado, add a serving of picked cabbage, the cooked cod, mango salsa and, if desired, radish slices.
  6. Enjoy with fresh lime!
