Health Rating


454 gm Wild Atlantic halibut (skinless, cut into 1-inch chunks - any white fish will work)
3 fruit Lime
1 whole lime(s) Lime peel (zest)
2 clove(s) Garlic (quartered)
1 bunch Cilantro (coriander)
1 bunch Green onion, scallion, ramp (half coarsely chopped and half finely chopped)
1 1/2 tsp Cumin
1 pinch Sea salt
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
4 cup shredded Green cabbage (TIME SAVER: buy bagged and shredded)
2/3 cup Greek yogurt, plain, 1% M.F. (organic)
12 medium tortilla(s) Tortilla, corn (8-12, organic, warmed)
454 gm Salsa verde, ready to serve (1 jar)


1. In a food processor, or high powered blender add lime zest, squeeze in the juice of 1 lime, the garlic, cilantro, coarsely chopped scallions, cumin and 1 teaspoon salt and pulse until roughly chopped.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and 1 tablespoon water and continue to pulse until the mixture becomes a chunky sauce.

3. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the sauce.

4. Toss the halibut in a bowl with sauce and let marinate for 10 to 15 minutes

5. In a large bowl, toss the remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro sauce with the cabbage, finely chopped scallions, the juice of the second lime, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.

6. In a small bowl, stir together the Greek yogurt, the juice of the remaining lime and a pinch of sea salt.

7. Heat an oiled large nonstick skillet (preferably ceramic) over medium-high heat.

8. Add about half of the fish, so the pieces are in a single layer, and cook, turning, until the fish is just opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes.

9. Transfer the fish to a plate and cook the remaining fish.

10. In warmed tortillas, place yogurt sauce, cabbage, fish, and top with salsa.
