Cook time: 10 minutes
Servings: 2-3

2 cups slaw mix
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon hot sauce, plus additional for serving
1 lime, divided
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
nonstick cooking spray
1/2 pound Alaska cod
olive oil
blackening seasoning, to taste, plus additional, divided
sea salt, to taste
4 small flour tortillas
1 avocado, sliced

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

In a bowl, mix slaw with mayonnaise, hot sauce, juice from 1/2 lime, and salt and pepper, to taste; set aside.

Line baking dish with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place Alaska cod on top and coat lightly with olive oil. Generously season with blackening seasoning and sea salt, to taste.

Bake for 5 minutes, set the oven to broil, and broil for 3-5 minutes. When the fish is done (when it flakes easily with a fork and is opaque throughout), remove it from the oven and break into small chunks with a fork.

In flour tortillas, add avocado and slaw. Top with chunks of cod and drizzle with additional hot sauce, a squeeze of lime juice from the remaining 1/2 lime, and additional blackening seasoning.
