Servings 6 tacos
- 1/2 each head red cabbage
- 1/2 each head white cabbage thinly sliced
- 4 each red radishes sliced thin
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves thinly sliced or minced
- 1 pound mahi-mahi fillet skinned

In a large bowl toss together the cabbages, the radishes, and the cilantro. Add ½ tsp of salt and reserve.
In a medium bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients and season it with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Prepare the fish and warm the tortillas:
Cut the fish crosswise into 1-inch wide strips. In a small bowl whisk together the paprika and the cayenne and sprinkle it evenly all over the strips. Season the strips well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Divide the tortillas into 2 stacks and wrap each stack in foil. Warm the tortillas on the oven at 200 F until heated through, about 3 minutes.
Remove the packets from the oven and keep warm in a damp kitchen towel.
Prepare a saute pan for moderately high heat. Oil the pan, then cook the fish turning it once, until it is opaque and just cooked through, about 6 minutes total. Transfer the fish to a platter and keep it warm, covered.
Mix the dressing with the slaw. Divide the fish among the warm tortillas and top it with cole slaw, cilantro sprigs and serve.
