  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Thaw fish fillets, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish fillets crosswise into 1-inch slices. Place fish in single layer in a greased shallow pan. Combine margarine, bouillon, cumin and garlic powder. Brush over fish. Bake for 4-6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise, sour cream and lime juice. Add coleslaw mixture; toss to coat. Spoon coleslaw mixture onto each warm tortilla. Top with fish. If desired, serve with salsa.

Quite delicious! We did not do the mayonnaise portion to reduce fat content. Just the boullion + butter over the fish kept the fish flavorful and moist. We had these on corn tortillas with lettuce, tomatoes and a sour cream/red hot/chili pepper sauce on top. Will for sure make these again!

It was okay. Nothing great. It might have been because of the kind of fish that I used.

This was a quick, tasty and healthy dinner! I added cilantro and red taco sauce for a little extra flavor.

Big hit at our home! The sauce was excellent, much tastier than the simple yogurt/mayo sauce without the spices. We used fish sticks for our fish since that's what we had and they were great! We just baked them according to the package directions and served them up with corn tortillas and cabbage. Excellent!

These were absolutely delicious and so easy! I used corn tortillas heated in foil in the oven and used low fat mayo and sour cream for the coleslaw. I also added cilantro and avocado to the tacos. We had black beans and fresh mango as side dishes and the flavors went very well together.

i am NOT a fish eater, but this has become my all-time favorite meal. my parents loved it too. i eat these so often that i keep the butter mixture in my fridge. i've used tilapia, crappie and basa fishes. they all turn out wonderfully. however, i do prefer corn tortillas heated up in a little oil instead of flour ones. a little dollop of garlic-lime salsa on top is a must for me. so SO good.

My husband was pleasantly surprised but he would not touch the mayo coleslaw mixture. Just put lettuce, tomatos, and avocados and said he liked them! That's a big thing here.

Wonderful! I added more lime juice and garlic to the fish before cooking, and more lime juice to the slaw mix for more kick. We also prefer corn tortillas to flour, makes it more like the fish tacos you get at restaurants. My family asks for this at least once a week now, even my two year old loves it!
