Spicy white fish wrapped in cabbage with a tasty wasabi-mayonnaise sauce. A delicious and easy way to enjoy fish tacos on a low-carb diet! You can also add a quick fresh pico de gallo to this if your diet allows tomatoes. Delicious! I now enjoy this more than regular fish tacos. Try this also with halibut or tilapia.

  • Heat canola oil with dried red chiles in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook fish in the hot oil until flesh is opaque and the edges of the fish are slightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle fish with salt and black pepper. Remove from heat, drain, and discard peppers.

  • Stir mayonnaise, wasabi paste, and 2 tablespoons cilantro together in a bowl. Spoon several tablespoons of fish into a cabbage leaf and wrap leaf around fish; repeat with remaining leaves and fish. Garnish each roll with a sprinkling of cilantro. Serve with wasabi mayonnaise.

KEEPER! This was so GOOD!!!! The only thing I did different was use "blackening" seasoning on the fish. My hubby about fell out of the chair when he tried this. I lost patience trying to peel the cabbage leaves, I only got about 6 of them and gave up! So I diced up the cabbage and mixed it with the wasabi mayo and served it kinda like a coleslaw. So good!! Thank you thank you! :D Read More

I used wasabi powder instead of paste and that was the only change I made. This was okay but we didn't love it. The cilantro seemed out of place and the cabbage leaves were very hard to eat. Lettuce would definitely work better for this. Read More
