Coleslaw Prep

In a large bowl pour in mayo, mustard, vinegar, sugar, sesame seeds and salt. Mix the dressing until smooth. Place the julienne cabbage onto the bowl and toss to cover the purple strands of cabbage. [set aside for later prep]

Fish Prep

In a small bowl combine all of the spices. Pat the fillets dry with a paper towel and season both sides with the spice mix. In a large skillet, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Once the oil heats up add in fillets and cook for 3 minutes on each side.

Final Prep

To assemble the tacos, place a heaping spoonful of fish onto the center of the tortilla and top it with the tangy coleslaw. Lastly squeeze a bit of lime juice on top and garnish it with chopped cilantro, thinly sliced onion and a sprinkling of fresh cilantro.
