Makes: 4 servings (2 tacos each)
• 1 red onion, chopped
• 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
• 1 cup shredded cabbage
• 1 pound white fish, any type
• 8 small corn tortillas
• 1 teaspoon chili powder (more or less to taste)
1. Mix onion, cilantro, and cabbage together in a bowl and set aside.
2. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Lightly sprinkle fish fillets
with chili powder and lay out on sheet.
3. Place in the oven about 6 inches from the broiler. Broil for
approximately 3 to 4 minutes, or until fish is fully cooked. You will know the fish is done when it pulls apart easily when separated with a fork.
4. Lightly fry tortillas on an oiled griddle or skillet, or heat tortillas in the microwave oven for a few seconds until softened and hot.
5. Fill tortilla with fish, cabbage, onion, and cilantro and fold in half.
