I use a Tilapia fillet seasoned with taco seasoning instead of a battered fillet but the slaw is what makes the taco so good! It is perfect with fish. I've used this many times and love it every time. Thanks for a great recipe!

These were so easy and really really good! I might add more jalepeno next time, but the slaw was so good I could have eaten it by itself!
