Pretty good, the seasoning came off when I was cooking the fish so it didn't have a "southwest" flavor. I added some lime juice to the fish. I also substituted broccoli slaw for cole slaw since we don't like cabbage.

Loved it! Super easy, I used Mahi Mahi and topped with avocado. Also, shredded a small head of cabbage for the slaw.

I would omit the cilantro. I used coleslaw dressing and then Tartar sauce.

Very easy and tasty. I also left out the butter and put fresh avocados on top. Will definitely make again but will use flour tortillas instead. I used corn but thought it took too much away from the flavor.

Very good - I added cheese and tomatoes - I will make these again.

These tacos are delish! Instead of cooking the fish myself, I used frozen crunchy cod nuggets and put the 1 T. of taco seasoning into the coleslaw mixture. Left out the cilantro cuz I hate it, and served chopped tomatoes, salsa, and Mexican blend cheese as garnishes. These are terrific with the Best Ever Chicken Fajita Chowder from this website.

Loved this recipe! I did add some southwest seasoning along with the taco seasoning for more flavor and used a non stick pan so cut the butter to 1-2 tablespoons. The slaw was also great with chicken.
