Grilled Fish Tacos & Honey Mustard Cabbage Slaw

adapted from


  • 12 oz Halibut or other white fish
  • 3 tbsp Lime Juice, divided
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1/2 medium Avocado
  • 6 small Corn Tortillas
  • 1 cup Red Cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup Red Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • Juice from 1 Lime (about 2 tbsp) + extra wedges for serving
  • 1 tsp Cian’s Honey or Medium Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Honey
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Ground Pepper to taste
  • Optional Toppings:
    Hot Sauce
  1. Place fish in a glass pan and squeeze the juice from one lime over the fish. In a small bowl, whisk together garlic powder, cumin, cayenne and sea salt. Sprinkle over fish and gently rub the seasoning in. Allow the fish to marinate 10 minutes or so.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine juice from the lime, mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Add cabbage, onion and cilantro, toss to combine. Set aside.
  3. Heat grill to medium-high and lightly oil grill-grate. Arrange tortillas in a stack and wrap with aluminum foil. Grill fish until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place tortillas on cooler part of grill (or top rack) until warm, 5 to 8 minutes, turning halfway.
  4. For grilled avocado: Cut avocado in half and remove seed. Drizzle with fresh lime juice and brush lightly with olive oil. Gently place cut-side down and grill over hot coals for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt, to taste.
  5. Break fish into large pieces. Taste slaw and season to your liking by adding more mustard, honey, salt and pepper if needed. Divide fish among tortillas and top with slaw, grilled avocado slice and your favourite salsa and hot sauce. Serve each taco with a lime wedge for squeezing over the taco before digging in.
