2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the carrot-cabbage slaw

In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, apple cider vinegar, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the lime yogurt

  • Zest the lime and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both limes; juice 1 lime and cut 1 lime into wedges.]

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, lime zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and a pinch of the blackening spice blend (set aside the remaining spice blend for dredging the fish). Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Prep and cook the fish

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; cut the sole crosswise into 2-inch-wide strips, the halibut or salmon into ½-inch-wide strips. Season lightly with salt.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the cornstarch with salt, pepper, and ¼ teaspoon of the blackening spice blend; spread in an even layer.

Dredge the fish in the cornstarch, turning to coat; shake off any excess. In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish and cook, turning once, until golden brown and just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
While the fish cooks, prepare the cilantro and heat the tortillas.


Prep the remaining garnish; warm the tortillas

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use. 

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Set out the tortillas, fish, carrot-cabbage slaw, lime yogurt, lime wedges, and cilantro and invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
