This is a good basic recipe, but the fish was a little bland with just the chili powder. I added garlic powder, cumin, cayenne and a bit of salt & pepper. Also blended some mayo with chipotle powder as a sauce to sprinkle over the filled taco.
Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw
We like to serve these Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw in the sturdy texture of corn tortillas, but you can use flour tortillas. Since the recipe makes more slaw than necessary for the tacos, serve the extra on the side.
