From WW's Hit the Spot. The original recipe called for red snapper, but catfish works well, too. You can use any firm white fish, so mahi mahi, grouper, tilapia, haddock, or cod will also work to suit your personal preference. (Sole or flounder would be too thin.) 4 WW "thingies" on old plan, but add 2 "thingies" if add 1/4 avocado to each serving. Update 5/4/13: Made these for myself, and I was disappointed: the fish didn't stay hot after flaking, the cabbage-onion mixture overwhelmed the fish, and cold tacos are a waste of calorie expenditure. DH would have preferred lettuce to cabbage, although lettuce has no nutritional value.On the plus side, the lime juice kept the avocado from spoiling.

Delicious fish tacos. I used red snapper and really enjoyed them. The cabbage was really nice with the fish. I added some fresh diced jalapenos for a little heat, and crisped up my tortillas so I got a nice crunch. Thanks for sharing! Made for Rookie tag game.
Very good -- we used red snapper, but somehow I was out of cabbage so we had to use lettuce. Loved using the micro to make these! (It really is nice finding ways to use the microwave besides heating up frozen dinners!!!!)Thanks for sharing!
Great flavor combination. Loved the cabbage mix and the marinade on the fish. We used Tilapia. The avocado was the perfect finisher. Made for PRMR.
