How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the sour cream, 1/4 cup salsa and the chipotle chile powder, if desired, in a small bowl.

Step 2

Season the fish with the salt, black pepper and cumin.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the fish and cook for 3 minutes.  Using a spatula, turn the fish over.  Cook for 3 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.  Drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon lime juice.

Step 3

Cut each fish fillet in half lengthwise, making 8 pieces.  Spoon the sour cream mixture onto the tortillas.  Place 1 piece fish into each tortilla.  Top with the remaining salsa and the cabbage.

Recipe Tips

  • Add some avocado to these tacos if you like, their buttery texture is great with the crunchy cabbage.
