Andrea's wine pick: There's nothing like the lively character of a French Sancerre--made from sauvignon blanc grapes--to complement the bright flavors in the fish tacos. Look for Domaine Reverdy-Ducroux Sancerre Beauroy 2004, $17.

How to Make It

Step 1

Lightly spray grill rack with nonstick cooking spray, and preheat grill.

Step 2

Sprinkle both sides of fish with fajita seasoning, gently pressing into flesh. Grill fish 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Flake into pieces with a fork; keep warm.

Step 3

In a small bowl, mix together cabbage, lime juice, salt, and cilantro.

Step 4

Wrap the tortillas in paper towels, and microwave 1 minute on HIGH or until they're warm.

Step 5

Place taco ingredients on the table for assembly. Spread each tortilla with 1 teaspoon of sour cream, if desired, and top with fish, cabbage mixture, and avocado. Serve with salsa and lime wedges on the side.

Yum! We were not expecting this to be so good but it rocked! The fish was great, as well as the cabbage. It was delicious!

I thought this recipe was just okay. I have tried a few other fish taco recipes from that were better. I used Tilapia instead of Mahi Mahi and omitted the cilantro, but otherwise followed the recipe. I will try again with a different fish and more seasoning.
