  • 1 1/2 lbs cod filets, or other flaky white fish of your choice
  • 1 tbsp blackening seasoning
  • 2 cups cabbage mix
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 8 small tortillas, corn or flour
  • 3 limes, divided
  • Cajun sauce (recipe follows)
  • For the Cajun Sauce:
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsps cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Lightly rub fish filets with the blackening seasoning on both sides.
  2. Toss the cabbage mix with 2 tsp olive oil, 2 tsp lime juice, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Make the cajun sauce by whisking all ingredients until well combined.
  4. Heat grill to medium-high.
  5. Brush grill lightly with olive oil. Cook filets for 2-3 minutes per side, or until fish is cooked through and flaky but still tender.
  6. Flake fish into bite-sized pieces. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Build the tacos: Add several pieces of fish to each tortilla, topped with a small handful of the cabbage mix, avocado, and cotija. Drizzle Cajun sauce on top of each taco, followed by a squeeze of lime. Serve immediately.
