  • 2 1/2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 lb of tomatillos
  • 2 tbls canola oil
  • 1 onion, cut in quarters
  • 1 1/2 lbs firm fleshed fish fillets, skinned (sea bass or halibut)
  • 2 jalapeno chiles
  • 2 tsps lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese


  • Dilute vinegar with 2 tablespoons of water and toss with cabbage. salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill.
  • Remove husks from and rinse tomatillos. Brush tomatillos, onions and chiles with oil. Place them over hot coals about 4 to 6 inches from heat source. Grill, turning as needed, until vegetables just begin to blacken, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside to cool. The vegetables can also be roasted under the broiler for 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Brush fish with remaining oil and place over medium hot coals. Grill about 5 to 7 minutes per side, turning once, until fish is opaque at the thickest part. Since charcoal grill temperatures differ greatly, test your fish with a fork to make sure it is cooked. If it flakes easily, it is usually ready to remove from the grill.
  • Meanwhile, remove stems from chiles. In a blender, process tomatillos, chiles, lime juice, cilantro and garlic until smooth. Chop onion and stir into salsa mixture. Pour into a small serving bowl. Add salt to taste. 
  • Remove fish from grill. Assemble tacos by placing cabbage in flour tortilla, add several chunks of grilled fish, green salsa, jack cheese and top with sour cream. Add a squeeze of lime and enjoy!
    This recipe also works wonders on boneless chicken breasts or thighs.
