Don't you just love a great fish taco? One that takes you to somewhere in Paradise. It reminds me of a Summer spent on the Mexican Riviera. The crunch of freshly caught fried fish, and spicy coleslaw, wrapped in a warm taco is somewhat of a comfort food for me. This time I opted for a healthier version. Instead of the usual sugar to sweeten the coleslaw dressing, I substituted honey, which gave it a really nice, slightly sweet to taste, and I used olive oil to sauté the Tilapia instead of frying it.
