Cabbage, which is hearty enough to last through winter, works perfectly in a coleslaw. This slaw doesn’t lack color, either. Red cabbage, orange carrot, and green scallions are vibrant no matter the weather. Pair the veggies with quick-sautéed fish that takes just six minutes to cook to a golden brown. The mild cod flavor is uplifted with a rich and tangy lime-butter sauce. Once complete, the dish provides a meal that tastes light yet hearty. Serve with a crisp white wine or a light beer.
