COOK TIME

Crunchy coleslaw and a few south-of-the-border spices give these Simple Fish Tacos made with U.S. Farm-Raised catfish that extra kick we're sure you'll love. These crowd-pleasers are as welcome for entertaining as they are for a simple weeknight!

What You'll Need:
  • COLESLAW TOPPING
  • 2 cups prepared coleslaw mix
  • 1 orange, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch sections
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 lime, squeezed, divided
  •  
  • FISH TACOS
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds U.S. farm-raised catfish fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 6 (6-inch) flour tortillas (soft tacos)
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine coleslaw, orange sections, red bell pepper, onion, rice vinegar, oil, and 1/2 the lime juice; mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. In another large bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, and salt; mix well. Add the fish pieces and toss until evenly coated.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil; saute fish 6 to 8 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with cilantro and remaining lime juice.
  4. Evenly distribute fish down the center of each tortilla. Top with coleslaw mixture. Roll up tortillas; secure each with a wooden toothpick. Serve immediately.

For a healthier option use corn or whole grain tortillas. Warm in microwave or over open flame or griddle. Works well with other fresh fish as well. Teach a man to fish.

Looks & sounds fabulous. I don't like the hard taco shells, also don't like cold soft sheel taco. Can I somehow cook the soft shell to warm them & have a slight crunch?

I recommend putting the soft shells (one at a time) into a frying pan, you can "toast" them in the pan on medium heat for a few minutes, they are delicious this way.
