Grilled Fish Tacos with Jalapeño Slaw

Chile-rubbed sea bass is topped with crispy cabbage and spicy jalapeño in this super-stuffed taco. Buttermilk yogurt dressing adds a decadent touch to this easy recipe.

Nutritional Bonus: A member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, cabbage contains plant compounds called glucosinolates. When converted to a secondary compound, glucosinolates may have anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects on the body.

  • 1/4 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • High-heat cooking oil (such as sunflower, safflower, peanut or grape seed oil), as needed
  • 1 1/4 lb firm white-fleshed fish fillets (such as sea bass or halibut), about 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 tsp chile powder
  • 1 tsp smoked sweet paprika
