Grilled Fish Tacos with Thai Slaw

Grilled Fish Tacos with Thai Slaw
Thai Slaw Dressing
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1/4 cup lime juice (about 2 juicy limes)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon red chili paste
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
Maple syrup (optional)
Red pepper flakes (optional)

Thai Slaw
2 cups red cabbage, thinly sliced
2 carrots, shaved or peeled
1/2 cup daikon radish, cut into matchsticks
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

Other ingredients
2 pounds mahi-mahi, skin removed
Flour tortillas
Avocados, sliced
To make slaw dressing, combine fish sauce, limejuice, sesame oil, red chili paste, coconut milk and peanut butter in small pot over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Taste and add a bit of maple syrup if more sweetness is desired and add some red pepper flakes if more spice is needed.
Combine red cabbage, carrots, daikon radish, red onion and cilantro. Mix in half of the slaw dressing.
Preheat grill to medium heat. When ready, cook fish on oiled grill surface, around 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. To warm tortillas while grilling fish, wrap tortilla stack in aluminum foil and place on grill grate over low heat, turning once while fish cooks. Remove fish and roughly chop. Serve fish in warm tortillas, topped with Thai slaw, sliced avocados and extra Thai slaw dressing.
