Ingredients

2 pounds halibut or other firm, sustainable white fish

Olive oil cooking spray 

Seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay, for sprinkling 

1 lime

One 8-ounce brick cream cheese or Neufchatel, softened 

1 cup sour cream 

1 teaspoon ground coriander, 1/3 palmful 

1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/3 palmful 

2 small cans diced green chiles, drained 

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese 

2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley 

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill, or 1 teaspoon dried dill 

Kosher salt and ground black pepper 

Eight 8-inch flour tortillas, warmed or lightly charred over a flame on the stovetop 

1 to 1 1/2 cups heavy cream 

1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

Garnishes: thinly sliced avocado dressed with lime, thinly sliced rings of red onion, chopped fresh parsley or cilantro 

Directions

  1. Preheat a broiler.
  2. Arrange the fish on a broiler pan or baking sheet. Spray the fish with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with seafood seasoning. Broil until firm and opaque. Cool the fish and flake with a fork. Dress with the juice of the lime.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir to combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, coriander and cumin. Add the chiles and 1 cup of the Jack cheese, the cilantro or parsley, fresh or dried dill, salt and pepper to taste and the halibut flakes.
  4. Spray a casserole or baking dish with olive oil. Arrange 3 to 4 spoonfuls of the filling on the edge of each tortilla and roll the enchiladas. Set into the casserole seam-side down. Pour the heavy cream over the top of the casserole, just enough to cover, and cover with the remaining Jack cheese and the grated Parm. Chill, covered, for a make-ahead meal. Bring to room temp before baking.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and bake the casserole brown and bubbly, 45 to 50 minutes. Top with avocado, onions and parsley or cilantro.
