Recipe

This is like a fish taco without the taco. Many times when I am out to eat and looking for a lower calorie option, I look for tacos. Then to cut back on calories, I simply skip the tortillas and simply eat all the yummy fillings. Today's recipe is my own homemade version of that with deliciously spiced fish, slaw, and some creamy avocado. It's perfect on the grill or made in the broiler.
