Using bagged shredded red cabbage and matchstick carrots allows you to have dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes! If you like, the fish can also be grilled outdoors. Some sliced mango and/or pineapple sprinkled with Tajín would be a refreshingly delicious accompaniment!

4 spray(s)

Shredded red cabbage

2 cup(s)

Uncooked carrot(s)

¾ cup(s), matchstick cut

  1. To make slaw, combine cabbage, carrots, cilantro, scallions, yogurt, lime juice, adobo sauce, and ½ tsp Tajín. Set aside.
  2. Spray a ridged grill pan with nonstick spray and heat over high. Sprinkle fish with adobo seasoning, cumin, and remaining ½ tsp Tajín. Spray fish with nonstick spray.
  3. Transfer fish to grill pan. Cook, turning once, until fish is just opaque throughout, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Break fish into chunks and divide among tortillas. Top each with a slightly heaping ¼ cup slaw and 1 tbsp salsa verde. Serve with lime wedges (if using) to squeeze over top.
  5. Serving size: 2 tacos


If you can't find adobo sauce on its own, take some from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.
