  • 4 filets cod
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup red cabbage
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1 serrano chili (finely chopped)
  • 3 green onions (white part only chopped)
  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • 2 small corn tortillas (per taco)
  • cilantro (garnish)
  • Mexican crema (garnish)


  1. Season the cod with salt, pepper, and paprika.

  2. Grill the cod on a skillet on the grill grates, turning once, until cooked through.

  3. In a second skillet (and at the same time) combine the red cabbage, corn, serrano chili, green onions, taco seasoning, and the juice from 1/2 a lime with a little olive oil. Stir occasionally until the cabbage is softened.

  4. Grill the corn tortillas for a minute or two each side until brown marks appear.

  5. Assemble your tacos with the cabbage slaw, flaked cod, and top with Mexican crema, cilantro, and lime juice.
