  • 1-1/2 pounds sole or cod fillets, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1 package (10 ounces) angel hair coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 corn tortillas or taco shells, warmed

  3. Place fish in tortillas. Top with coleslaw mixture; serve with lime wedges.
