Fish Tacos with Creamy Lime Guacamole and CabbageSlaw
My first foray in ice fishing at our local pond brought me one beautiful rainbow trout not possible without the expert help of my good friend JoAnn Darling who brought the equipment and Chaga Chai. We spent a good hour cutting through almost 2 feet of ice and it paid off with 3 beautiful fish. I learned how to gut the fish right away and in the freezer it went. It has helped me remember my first trip south of the border in Mexico, where I went to celebrate my brother's big 60! The colors there were a balm to my snow-blind eyes.

Cook Time: 45 min
2 Hass avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
1/4 cup(s) low-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt
1 small jalapeño, seeded and thinly sliced
2 tablespoon(s) minced red onion
2 tablespoon(s) chopped cilantro
5 tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 small (4 cups) head of napa cabbage, shredded

10 (7-inch) flour tortillas, warmed

1. Light a grill. In a medium bowl, mash the avocados, sour cream, jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, and 3 tablespoons of the lime juice. Season the guacamole with salt and pepper and press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole.
2. In a large bowl, toss the cabbage with the 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and the remaining 2 tablespoons of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Brush the fish with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat until lightly charred and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer the fish to a platter and pull off the skin.
4. To assemble each taco, spread a dollop of guacamole on a tortilla. Top with a piece of fish, a few tomato slices, and a large spoonful of the cabbage slaw. Serve with the hot sauce and lime wedges.
