Here’s a fast and easy fish taco slaw! Make this simple recipe to go with any type of shrimp or fish tacos: it takes just 5 minutes to throw together.


  • 3 cups shredded red cabbage (or a mix of red and green cabbage)
  • 1 shredded or grated carrot (optional)
  • 1 green onion
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt (or substitute kosher salt)


  1. Thinly slice the cabbage. Shred or grate the carrot (we used a handheld julienne peeler). Thinly slice the green onion.
  2. Place the cabbage, carrots and green onion in a bowl. Stir in the lime juice, salt and celery salt. Serve immediately with a slotted spoon. (The slaw picks up moisture as it sits; if you plan to let it sit, make sure to serve with the slotted spoon to strain out the moisture.)
