- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

- In a large bowl mix the slaw ingredient minus the cabbage. When it is nicely mixed, fold in the cabbage.
- In a small bowl mix the chile powder, cumin, salt, cayenne, cilantro, pepper and oregano. Dry off the fish filets with a paper towel.
- Oil the filets then rub with the chile mixture. Cover and let sit in the fridge for 20 minutes.
- While the fish is marinating, preheat the grill to medium-high.
- Oil the grill grates with vegetable oil then place the fish on the grill, meat side down. Grill for 4 minutes or until the fish releases from the grill grates.
- Flip the fish and grill for another 3-4 minutes or until the fish are opaque all the way through. Remove the fish from the grill and let rest.
- While the fish are resting, place the tortillas on the grill for about 15 seconds on each side.
- Break the fish up into chunks and place on the grilled tortilla. Cover the fish with slaw. Serve with a wedge of lime.
