Paiche (pronounced PIE-chay) is a deliciously thick and meaty though lean fish. This recipe calls for no added oil, so be sure to cook the fish in a grilling basket or on foil so it doesn’t stick to the grill grates.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 1/2 cup finely sliced green cabbage
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 5 radishes, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 3/4 pound boneless, skinless paiche fillet, in one piece
  • 1/2 teaspoon no-salt-added chili powder
  • 4 100% whole grain tortillas

Method: 
In a large bowl, combine cabbage, bell pepper, radishes, jalapeño, vinegar and a pinch of the salt, and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 1 day. Drain before serving.

Prepare a grill for medium-high-heat cooking. Sprinkle paiche with chili powder and remaining salt, and place in a grilling basket or on a double layer of aluminum foil. Grill, turning the basket once (or flipping fish with a spatula if using foil), until fish is just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer fish to a plate and break into chunks, using a fork. Place tortillas on the grill and grill until warm and lightly browned, about 30 seconds per side. Fill tortillas with fish and pickled vegetables.
