1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest


1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound (1-inch thick) red snapper fillet, skin removed*


2 teaspoons lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups coleslaw mix
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
6 (6- to 8-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
3 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American


Combine sour cream and lime zest in bowl. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

Combine all rub ingredients except red snapper in another bowl. Rub evenly onto both sides of fish; let stand 15 minutes.

Stir together lime juice, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon cumin in bowl. Add coleslaw mix and cilantro; toss to combine. Set aside.

Melt butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet until sizzling; add fish fillet (cut fillet in half to fit into pan, if necessary). Cook over medium-high heat 5 minutes; turn fish. Add bell pepper; continue cooking 5-7 minutes or until fish flakes with fork and pepper strips are crisply tender. Flake fish into 1-inch pieces using fork.

Stack cheese slices. Cut into thin strips; separate. 

Layer each tortilla evenly with fish, bell pepper and coleslaw mixture. Top with cheese; dollop with 1 tablespoon topping. Fold in half.

*Substitute grouper, halibut, walleye or any medium-firm to firm fleshed fish.
