What do you make with cabbage?

One of the things I love about having a garden is figuring out what i will make with whats ready to eat.  I planted some cabbage and its ready to eat, but what do you make with cabbage?

The first thing that came to mind was fish tacos, and that sounded great, so that’s what I made.

My peppers and chilies are coming in like crazy in the garden so I’ve been cooking a lot with these.

I finally got to use my new mandolin slicer on the cabbage

it works maybe a little too well.   Be Careful when cleaning those things.

Take your fish fillets and coat with seasoning.  I used a seasoning from Outback Steakhouse, and its just awesome.  If you don’t have a good hookup to get the seasoning, you can use any cajun type of seasoning. I also sprinkled with the chipotle flakes here too.

I like to throw the tortillas over the burner for a few seconds each side to warm them up and give them a nice color

Oh wow, was that an amazing taco.  The tangy tomatoes and the flavor of the mango jump out against the heat of the peppers and the fish.  Its so good and super easy to make.

Here were my two puppy helpers who sat at my feed while I made dinner.  They were a big help.

These tacos were so good.  I’m definitely making these again soon.
