Unlike most fish taco recipes, the slaw in this recipe is air-fried instead of raw creating a caramelized version which leaves the fish to be the crispy star of the show.

  • Combine cabbage slaw, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Mix until evenly combined and set aside.

  • Mix together flour, cornmeal, and taco seasoning in a separate bowl. Add fish pieces and toss until evenly coated, discarding any remaining seasoning mix. Place in the prepared air fryer basket and mist lightly with cooking spray.

  • Cook fish in the preheated air fryer for 5 minutes. Shake the basket, and cook until fish is crispy and flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes more. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Place cabbage slaw mixture into the air fryer basket.

  • Cook until cabbage is caramelized, about 8 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time.

  • Spoon cabbage onto tortillas and top with fish.

Made this tonight with changes:. I used frozen tilapia filets - thawed in the fridge. I put the the flour and cornmeal in a mixture in a zip lock bag with kosher salt and pepper but did not add the taco seasoning & shaked the fish in the bag. I made the copycat Bonefish Grill Bang Bang Shrimp sauce. Served this with lettuce wraps instead of tortilla wraps in order to lower the carbs. Served the dish - lettuce wraps, slaw mixture from the recipe, fish from the recipe, drizzled the Bang Bang sauce on top, drop of sour cream. Side of homemade guacamole and tortilla chips. I will make again. Easy quick dinner, very tasty. Read More

Menu didn't say what to do with the cilantro I put it in the cabbage mix. That was delish! The fish was very crispy. I used tilapia. I either cooked it so long or the corn ships I substituted for cornmeal just didn't work. Adding sour cream, avocado, shredded cheddar and chipotle sauce. Then I wrapped each in a paper towel and microwaved it for 30 secs to bring them all to gether. See pixs Read More
