Grilled Fish Tacos with Kohlrabi Slaw

Nothing reminds me of the beach more than grilled seafood, and this recipe will have you dreaming of your next vacation. I actually brought fresh seafood home from my last trip to make these and paired them with kohlrabi from my weekly farm share from Sustainable Harvest Farm. The kohlrabi slaw adds a nice crunch to these fresh tacos, bringing the taste of the beach to your backyard. You can also make these with any white fish you have on hand, like halibut or tilapia. I like to enjoy mine with a mojito or margarita and chips and salsa.

Kohlrabi Slaw Ingredients:
1 medium kohlrabi
2 tablespoons cilantro, roughly chopped
1 lime, cut in half
1 tablespoon sorghum or honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Grilled Fish Taco Ingredients:
1 pound skinless mahi mahi filets
2 teaspoons olive oil
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon white pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1 lime, cut in half

Directions:

  1. Peel and grate kohlrabi and place in a medium bowl. Add cilantro, juice from lime, sorghum, olive oil, chili powder and salt. Stir to evenly combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Place mahi mahi filets on a plate and brush with olive oil. In a small bowl, combine cumin, chili powder, white pepper and salt. Rub seasoning onto fish.
  3. Prepare an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Grill the fish for about five minutes and then carefully turn the fish over and cook for another five minutes, until flaky and cooked through. Place fish on a serving platter covered with aluminum foil and set aside.
  4. Warm tortillas on the grill grate until small brown spots appear on both sides. Remove and wrap in aluminum foil until ready to serve.
  5. With a fork, flake fish into large chunks. Drizzle with juice from lime and serve in warm tortillas topped with kohlrabi slaw.
