BC rockfish tacos

Prep time: 20 min

Cook time: 10 min

Serves: 4


  • 1 1/2lb pounds of snapper from your local Fisherman’s Market, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cups very thinly shredded cabbage
  • 1 red onion halved and very thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp minced seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tbsp cider or rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp vegetable or canola oil divided
  • 12 x 6 inch corn tortillas
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chilli powder

To serve (pick and choose):

  • Diced avocado
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Lime wedges
  • Stonewall Kitchen black bean salsa from your local Fisherman’s Market 
  • Sour cream


  1. Toss the cabbage, onion and jalapeno with the vinegar and 2 teaspoons of the oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Place tortillas on a baking sheet 6 at a time and bake at 400 degrees until starting to slightly brown and or bubble, about 6 minutes, turning half way through. Stack the tortillas on a plate as they are cooked and cover with a dry towel. Set aside
  3. Sprinkle the pieces of fish all over with the cumin, chilli powder, and salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in the large skillet over medium high heat. Sauté until almost cooked through, about 5 minutes, turning as needed. The pieces may fall apart a little as you cook them; that’s perfectly fine. Place the fish on a serving plate as it is cooked and squeeze on a bit of fresh lime. 
  4. Serve the fish with the toasted tortillas, cabbage slaw, and the toppings you like. Let everyone assemble their own tacos.
