  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ¾ tsp chili powder
  • ¾ tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 (¼ lb each) haddock or cod fillets
  • 2 cups green cabbage thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • ½ cup red onion finely chopped

  • 8 (6 inch)  corn tortillas warmed
  • 1 avocado peeled and cut in 8 wedges (optional)

  • Prepare a 7×11-inch baking dish by spraying it with nonstick spray.
  • In a cup, combine lime juice, oil, chili powder, ground coriander, and salt. Stir the mixture well.
  • Place the fish in the baking dish, making sure it's in a single layer. Use a brush to coat the fish with the lime juice mixture.

To Serve (Optional)

  • If you'd like, you can serve avocado wedges on a separate plate. Sprinkle the avocado with the juice from half a lime, as well as some salt and pepper.
