Here in Florida fresh fish is pretty easy to find. If you are lucky, you have your own fresh caught fish from a day of fruitful fishing. Whether you caught it yourself or not, this dish is an excellent use for that fillet.

 Ingredients

  •  3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb. any fresh white fish
  • 1/2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 avocado, diced

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 c. shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 c. corn kernels

 Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium high heat.
  2. In a medium shallow bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne.
