  6. Cook the fish on the grill with the lid closed or under the broiler for 8 minutes total, until cooked through, turning once.

  7. Crisp the taco shells and blister the tortillas on the grill or in the oven.

  2. Fill each tortilla-wrapped taco shell with half a piece of fish, flaked, and top with some cabbage slaw and crème fraîche.
