Wow. The blend of those flavors were spot-on delicious! I even REALLY cheated and used cut up fish sticks (!) - it was the only fish I had on hand. These were so scrumptious I couldn't even believe it. Thanks for sharing this one with the rest of us! Will make it into my monthly (if not weekly) rotation!

Made exactly as written with the ground cumin option. One of my guest had not had fish tacos and was reluctant to try this but she did and she loved it. Served with Lemon Cilantro Rice and Guacamole. Excellent!

Definitely very tasty. Made these over the weekend. I used pre-shredded coleslaw mix from the bagged lettuce section of the grocery store to make the process faster. I also added some sour cream to the coleslaw mix because it didn't seem like the 1 tablespoon of mayo made for enough dressing as I would like. Finally, I didn't want to use battered fish fillets, so instead I used plain tilapia fillets, marinaded it with some lemon and lime juice, and then grilled it. Finally, put some fish on each tortilla and sprinkled it with some cheese and melted it in the oven before serving with the coleslaw.

I've lived in Southern California for 10 years and my favorite Mexican dish is fish tacos. I am pretty picky about my fish tacos, but had never tried to make them myeslf until now. Now that I've found this recipe, I feel bad for all of the Mexican restaurants I used to visit. Why would I go out for fish tacos when I can make these at home? They were DELICIOUS!!! All I added was once diced Roma tomato to the slaw. Excellent. I'll be adding these into my weekly rotation! Thank you for the recipe!

Outstanding. Made this for lunch. I added a little more lime juice (fresh squeezed) and mayo. Thanks for sharing. I will make this many more times!

I was not crazy about fish tacos; however, this was delicious. I will make them often! I only had fish sticks on hand and the taste was wonderful!

I'm giving my stars to the coleslaw, because I didn't make the fish, YET! I didn't have cilantro so I added about 1/2 tsp of coriander, still yummy. Can't wait to try again with cilantro.

I used Tilapia with Mexican seasoning and pan fried them. The coleslaw lacked flavor to me. My husband really liked it though but for me the flavors were really mild.

I used some fish burgers I purchased from Wholefoods. It was yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
