Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375ºF.
Cut cactus into 2-inch-wide strips. Heat dressing in large skillet on high heat. Add cactus; cook and stir 4 to 5 min or until softened. Remove from heat; cool completely.
Arrange 4 corn husks on work surface, overlapping edges as necessary to form 11x8-inch rectangle. Repeat with remaining husks to make a total of 6 rectangles. Place 1 fish fillet at 1 short end of each rectangle. Spread fish with mayo; sprinkle with red pepper. Top with epazote leaves, jalapeño peppers and cactus. Starting at short end with fish, wrap each rectangle to enclose filling. Tie bundles with string; place, topping-sides up, on rimmed baking sheet.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork.
Cactus can be purchased already cleaned (spines removed) and cut into strips. Look for it in the produce section of your local Mexican grocery store. You will need 4 cups for this recipe.
Epazote is a highly aromatic and irreplaceable herb that imparts great flavor to dishes when used in just small quantities. Epazote can be found fresh in the produce section of large supermarkets. Air-dry leftover epazote, then store for future use.
How to Soak the Corn Husks
Soak corn husks in hot water at least 30 min. or up to 24 hours. Let any leftover soaked corn husks dry out, then store in a cool dry place for another use.
