Happy New Year friends! I hope you all had a safe and happy new year. We celebrated New Years eve at home with a steak and seafood feast, a bottle of Brunello and, my favorite tradition, a Lord of the Rings marathon. Now that we’re into 2016, I thought I would lighten things up a bit and share this recipe for Chili Rubbed Fish Tacos.
Before we get to the recipe, I have a little housekeeping news. I am proud to announce that I am part of a new food blogger collaboration called Coterie Cookbooks. Coterie Cookbooks is a collection of over 40 of your favorite food bloggers. We will be releasing a new ebook every month this year. First up is a collection of 5 Minute Healthy Snacks to get you started right this new year. Get your copy here!
Now on to these Chili Rubbed Fish Tacos. Usually when I eat or make fish tacos, the fish is fried. And they are delicious because everything fried is delicious. However, in the spirit of lightening things up in the new year, the cod for these fish tacos is rubbed with chili powder, drizzled with lime, wrapped up in parchment paper and baked. The result is tender, flakey, perfectly seasoned fish that shined in these fish tacos.
I also decided to add some slaw on top because what’s a fish taco with out slaw? The slaw comes together really quickly and easily. I chopped my own cabbage because I had some in the fridge but to make things even easier for you, you could pick up some coleslaw mix. Which ever you use, the slaw is a part you don’t want to leave out. It is the perfect creamy, crunchy compliment to these Chili Rubbed Fish Tacos.

Fish tacos are a favorite of mine, and I love the slaw – makes them bright and crisp!

These look amazing. I have a huge fear of cooking fish at home. I really have no experience working with it. These are so tempting, I might have to overcome my fear.
