I needed a new taco recipe in my life. Which is how these Five Spice Halibut Tacos with Apple Asian Slaw happened.
Not that you must use fresh halibut, as a fresh true cod would also work well in this recipe. I just happen to live over here in the Pacific Northwest where halibut is a staple in my kitchen. I feel so lucky I can find fresh halibut on the Oregon coast, direct from the local fishing fleets. Halibut tastes best fresh and buying local makes my heart happy.
The exquisite fragrance of the five spice powder combined with the apple laced Asian slaw makes my palate sing. Such a delicious combination of flavors and textures all rolled into one beautiful taco.
This Five Spice Halibut Tacos with Apple Asian Slaw is a simple recipe to prepare which makes it a great weeknight meal. I like pan cooking my halibut but you can just as easily pop it in the oven and roast it. If it’s fresh, it should come out flaky and moist. And of course, flavorful.
Before I prepare the fish, I whip up the slaw and the Sriracha crema and pan fry my tortillas. If I’m in a hurry I steam my tortillas or pop them in the microwave for a few seconds.
Once the fish is done, I assemble my tacos and serve it with the Sriracha crema for drizzling.
Oh, my table is a happy place to be on taco night!
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,
