easy fish tacos + coleslaw

fish tacos with cole slaw

There is obviously nothing better than fresh fish on a beach vacation. If you disagree, then you’re wrong. Seeing as I was spring breaking in Destin, Florida and The Kitchn recently posted a recipe for a quick weeknight meal of fish tacos and quick cabbage slaw, I decided to take full advantage of the caught-that-day fish available at any local grocery store. Keep reading for the full recipe!

I’m going to brag a little bit about these tacos because, 1) I made them all by myself and 2) I had to work with limited ingredients, being on vacation and all. They totally hit the spot (maybe something to do with the FRESH FISH?), and, as the The Kitchn promised, were a cinch to make.

Quick Fish Tacos with Simple Cole Slaw

For the slaw:
1 bag of cole slaw mix (like I said, I was on vacation)
2-3 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2-1 jalapeño chile 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 tablespoon lime juice
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
Honey to taste (sugar or agave works too)
Salt and pepper

For the fish:
Salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1 pound tuna
Sprinkle Mrs. Dash Original Blend

Squirt fresh lemon and lime juice. Season fish with salt and pepper, paprika, Mrs. Dash and lemon and lime juice. My brother was throwing some steaks on the grill, so I went with grilling over pan-frying. I wrapped the fish in foil and he grilled them for about 10-15 minutes. Mix jalapeño, green onions and bagged coleslaw mix in a large bowl. Whisk mayo, honey, garlic and lime in a separate bowl. Add the mixture to the slaw and there ya go! (Tip: the bagged coleslaw makes a ton so you may need to add more or less of the may mixture, depending on how much slaw you want to make.) Place fish, avocado, cilantro, salsa and lime juice on a corn tortilla. (I added some slaw to my tacos too.) And that’s it! The easiest fish taco recipe ever. Oh, and here’s a pic of the gorgeous beach, just for good measure and to make you all jealous. Destin, Florida

  1. I do not drop a comment, however after reading a bunch of comments on this page easy fish tacos +
    coleslaw – delight. I actually do have 2 questions for you if
    you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it appear like a few
    of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to keep up with you.
    Would you make a list of all of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?


  2. Can I just say what a comfort to find an individual who really knows what they are discussing
    on the web. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to
    light and make it important. More and more people must read this
    and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising
    you’re not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.
