Ingredients

Fresh Salsa
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 sliced green onions
  • 1 dash cumin
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
For the slaw
  • 2 cups coleslaw
  • 1 dash ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
For the Grouper
  • 1 pound fish (I've used this for grouper, snapper, sheepshead)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons oil for frying (I like to use reserved bacon grease)
  • 1 lemon
  • corn tortillas
  • 1–2 avocados

Preparation

Combine the tomatoes, cilantro, green onion, cumin and 3 tablespoons of lime juice. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Combine the coleslaw, pepper, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Combine all of the ingredients for the creamy fish sauce. Mix well; refrigerate until ready to use.

Combine flour, cornmeal, parsley, pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, and garlic powder in a dish until well combined.

Dredge filets in the cornmeal/ flour mixture until well coated.

Heat oil in a large skillet (I prefer cast iron) over medium heat, and fry each side until it's a golden color.

Remove from heat to paper-towel-lined plate and sprinkle with lemon juice. Keep warm while the remaining fish cooks.

Heat tortillas and build tacos with fish, creamy sauce, coleslaw, tomato salsa, and avocado.
