Directions

Cabbage Slaw
Combine all ingredients but the salt and pepper in a bowl. Gently toss, and then season to
taste with salt and pepper. This may be prepared a day in advance and kept covered and
refrigerated.

Citrus Salsa
Combine the citrus segments in a bowl. Add all the other ingredients and gently toss to
combine. Season with salt and pepper.

Cilantro Crema
Mix cilantro and crema together. Season to your taste with drops of fresh lime juice, salt
and pepper.

Tacos
Prepare a gas or charcoal grill, or preheat a stovetop grill.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, chili powder, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Brush liberally on the Alaska Halibut or Cod fillets. Grill, cooking just until fish is opaque throughout.
  2. To assemble tacos: Place a warm grilled tortilla on each plate. Top with one quarter of the Cabbage Slaw, a portion of the grilled fish, a heaping tablespoon or two of the Citrus Salsa, and a spoonful of the Cilantro Crema. Fold over to eat.
