First time I had fish tacos I thought they were horrible. This recipe was very good. I really loved the coleslaw. Took me a minute to get used to, since I like my coleslaw super creamy but the more I ate it the better I liked it. I used this recipe with Kittencal's low fat version of Baked Fish Fillets. Thanks for sharing!!

I just made the coleslaw, not the fish. I used sauteed tilapia instead (healthier) & corn tortillas. The slaw was GREAT, very tasty! To my corn tortilla, for a sauce, I added some leftover salad dressing from Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad with GREAT results! I also threw in some corn, black beans, and leftover sweet potatos (Crispy Sweet Potato Fries (Weight Watchers)). These were SO good, I may make them weekly!

My whole family loved this recipe. I admit I did tweak it a bit. I added sugar to the slaw *taste preference* since my cabbage was on the bitter side. For the fish, I bought unbreaded, frozen Mahi Mahi steaks and baked them with a bit of salt, pepper and marjoram herb. We warmed corn tortillas, filled them with a bit of flaked Mahi Mahi and then the slaw. These were the best fish tacos ever!! Well, besides the ones I've had in Mexico. Thanks for the excellent recipe!

i love this coleslaw because it is fresh, spicy and is not loaded with mayo. For the fish tacos, i bought the Louisiana fish fry (which is really tasty) and for the fish I used catfish. If you really want to have kind of a more authentic flavor from Baja California, Mexico, use corn tortillas. Besides being lower in calories, they are the real deal in the tacos (never heard of fish tacos with flour tortillas in Mexico). Also, make a guacamole and a simple salsa to go with the tacos. For the salsa, simply chop some onions and put it to marinated for around 15 minutes with lemon and salt. Then add some fresh chopped tomatoes, some cilantro and some chopped jalapenio or serrano (depending on how hot you want it). The whole combo of coleslaw, salsa, guacamole and fish is heaven. Trust me!!

I made the slaw only, I followed the recipe except for the jalapeno. I did not have one so I added ground red pepper to taste. This is a wonderful slaw. My kids were sneaking into the kitchen getting spoonfuls as I was cooking dinner!
