For the fish:

  • 2 white fish fillets (such as cod or tilapia), about 4-6 ounces each

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the cabbage slaw:

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage (green or purple)

  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Brush the fish fillets with the spice mixture, making sure to coat both sides.

  3. Place the fish fillets on the preheated grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the grill and set aside.

  4. In a medium bowl, combine the shredded cabbage, chopped cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss well to coat the cabbage in the dressing.

  5. Take the lettuce leaves and arrange them on plates or a serving platter. Place a grilled fish fillet on each lettuce leaf.

  6. Top the fish with a generous amount of the cabbage slaw.

  7. Serve the grilled fish tacos immediately and enjoy!
