Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from canned chipotle chiles
  • 1 cup peeled, coarsely shredded jicama (3 ounces)
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage (2 ounces)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed slightly
  • Lime wedges for serving

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler with rack 3 inches from heat. To make crema: Combine the sour cream and adobo sauce in a small bowl, whisking well; set aside and allow flavors to meld. Meanwhile, combine jicama, cabbage, carrots, cilantro leaves, lime juice and zest, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a medium bowl; toss well. Chill until ready to use.
  2. 2. Place the fish in a broiler pan; brush with remaining teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with the chili powder, paprika, cumin, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Broil until the fish is cooked through and slightly charred around edges (6-8 minutes). Remove fish from oven; flake with a fork.
  3. 3. Place about 1/4 cup slaw on each tortilla; top with 1/4 cup cooked fish. Top each taco with about 1 tablespoon crema; serve with lime wedges.
