Recipe: Fish Tacos with Cabbage and Jalapeño Slaw

Entertaining made easy with this favorite from London Chop House’s R.J. Scherer


Published:

R.J. Scherer, executive chef at the London Chop House, likes to prepare fish tacos when entertaining at home. “I like these kinds of ideas because it leaves the decision of what to put [on] everyone’s plate up to the guest,” he says. “All the cook/host has to do is create a big spread of different components and the rest is up to everyone.” He likes that it “creates a bit of a casual atmosphere so the formality of having everyone over for dinner can be easygoing. Hosting friends and family shouldn’t be hard, it should be fun.”
