Spiced Halibut Taco
Yield : 4 -6 large tacos , / or/ approx 10-12 mini size
I found this on the internet ~ it's a great handy tip to make your own hard shell taco at home ! - I used a small round cookie cutter, to make cute bite size shells . Great for entertaining .

Working with 6 tortillas at a time, wrap in a barely damp cloth or paper towel and microwave on High until steamed, about 30 seconds. Lay the tortillas on a clean work surface and coat both sides with cooking spray. Then carefully drape each tortilla over two bars of the oven rack. Bake at 375°F until crispy, 7 to 10 minutes.

4 cups very thinly green cabbage
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup fresh matchstick apple
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
tsp pickled banana peppers
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
5 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil,
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 pound fresh Halibut
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add juice, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; toss well to combine.
Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fish evenly with chili powder and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add fish to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat, and cut fish into bite-sized pieces. * note : you could also cook your halibut on the BBQ.

Divide cabbage mixture in shells and fill ,then spoon fish evenly on top

* You can add your favorite salsa/ guacamole /sour cream if you wish to.

Pairs nicely with a crisp light beer ! or white wine
