"I used to make these all the time in California and they are so easy and fresh! You can also omit the mayonnaise and increase the red vinegar to reduce calories. All in all, these are a great main dish for any time of year! We usually serve them with fat-free refried beans topped with cilantro and goat cheese, or a cold corn salad with chopped bell pepper and onion." — mleiland

The slaw part of this recipe gets 5 stars the fish needed a little help. I ended up seasoning the fish with some smoked paprika, garlic, chili and chive blend. Baked at 425 for 10 minutes. I really thought the slaw would have too much vinegar - but with the sweet pineapple and mango it was perfect. Thanks for a great dinner.
Whatever you do, DO NOT use an entire tablespoon of salt. I just made the slaw for these tacos and the entire batch was ruined because of the salt. ;(
WOW!! This was the base for truly the best fist tacos I have ever had.
I used a bag of pre-cut cabbage instead of doing it myself (yes, at 1am I was a little lazy).
I substituted 5.3 oz container of plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo.
I doubled up on the cilantro because it's soooo good.
THEN I added about 1/3 cup of chopped jicama to give this a nice crisp refreshing subtle crunch.
I let the slaw sit in a bowl in the fridge covered with clear plastic wrap for about 10-12 hours and then topped it off with some Hidden Valley Ranch ( on the tacos only, NOT in the slaw itself)
At first I thought the slaw was a little spicy for the average person (I love me some heat), but as it all set over night and was able to blend and the addition of ranch really gave this dish amazing full flavor!!
*Note* I ONLY made the slaw, and used frozen breaded cod fillets instead.
These tacos were AMAZING! We have found some artisan tortillas that are a mix between corn and flour and they are so tasty! Enjoyed the slaw the most! Will be making this one again!
I LOVED this recipe! It was a good idea to keep the fish simple because the slaw is packed with flavor! I am rating this for me and my daughter-we loved it. My husband doesn't like Cilantro to begin with so he said that he couldn't taste anything else-next time i will omit the Cilantro in his portion-a bit spicy which i like but for those who do not, go small on the jalapeno or omit it totally until you try it. Great recipe for my taste!!
My MIL made these over the past weekend and they were very good and I will be making them tonight...very filling & light......
Really Really good, Pared it with Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa
The slaw was great. I used tilapia filets instead of cod. I dredged them in a mixture of flour & Old Bay seasoning, then pan fried them. I prefer corn tortillas to flour ones.
