Fish Tacos

I got this from Better Homes and Gardens. It is a staple in our house and the kids love them!

1 pound fresh or frozen skinless cod (I use halibut)
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tsp lime juice
1 1/2 C packaged coleslaw mix without dressing
8 corn taco shells

Thaw fish, if frozen. Cut fish into 3/4-inch slices. Place in a single layer in greased shallow baking pan. Combine butter, cumin, and garlic powder. Brush over fish. Bake in 450 degree oven for 4-6 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.

Meanwhile, stir together mayo and lime juice. Add cabbage; toss to coat. Place fish in taco shell, add cabbage mixture, and enjoy.

I can't wait to try this! I love fish tacos but the fish is usually breaded and I can't eat it.

Oh my goodness! So good! I hadn't had a fish taco in years. I used cod. Everyone loved them....except child number one who doesn't eat tortillas. But she ate the fish - go figure. I loved the lime in the slaw. Can't wait for the last little bits for lunch today. Yummy!

so this is my new favorite meal...it is so easy and yummy. Used Cod this time. I definitely liked the mahi mahi better...but ryan liked the cod better. anyways...you guys have to try lynne miller's sour cream salsa with lime on these...

1/2 c. sour cream, 1/4c. mayo, 1/2 c. drained salsa, fresh chopped cilantro, 1/2 squeezed lime, and 1 TBSP. ranch dressing mix.

She uses this on her chipolte pork tacos but this was so yummy on the fish and coleslaw. Got it from the handouts she passed out a year or two ago.
