Grilled Fish

  • 3 filets cod (or other fish)
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Citrus Carrot Slaw

  • 2 navel oranges peeled and diced
  • 2 cara cara oranges peeled and diced
  • 1 large carrot julienne peeled
  • 1 cup green cabbage thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Other Ingredients


  • Mix all of the citrus slaw ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a grill (or grill pan) on medium-high heat and grill the fish for 2-3 minutes on one side. Squeeze the lime over the fish and season with garlic, salt and pepper. Flip the fish and grill for another 2-3 minutes. The fish will likely break apart and that's okay.
  • Assemble the fish tacos by placing small pieces of fish in each taco, then top with the slaw. Garnish with avocado and lime slices.


  • If you don't have an outdoor grill, you can use a grill pan or reversible grill/griddle pan and make these in your kitchen. Super easy!
