Grilled Fish Tacos With Thai Red Cole Slaw

“I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I found it on the Whole Foods website and it sounds amazing. I love fish tacos and I love Thai food, so I thought this is a perfect combination of the two! Cooking time is an estimate, and doesn't include marinading.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To marinate fish, whisk together tamari, lime juice, water, red chili paste, garlic, honey and coconut milk. Pour over fish and marinate one hour in refrigerator.
  2. To make slaw dressing, combine fish sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, red chili paste, coconut milk and peanut butter in small pot over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Taste and add a bit of maple syrup if more sweetness is desired and red pepper flakes if more spice is needed.
  3. Combine red cabbage, carrots, daikon, red onion and cilantro. Mix in one-half of the slaw dressing.
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat. When ready, cook fish on oiled grill surface, around 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. To warm tortillas while grilling fish, wrap tortilla stack in aluminum foil and place on grill grate over low heat, turning once while fish cooks. Remove fish and roughly chop. Serve fish in warm tortillas, topped with Thai slaw, sliced avocados and extra Thai slaw dressing.
