  • 1   pound 
    (1-inch thick) red snapper fish fillets
  • 1/4  cup 
    lime juice
  • 1/4  cup 
    chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4  cup 
    canola oil
  • 1/4  cup 
    prepared salsa verde
  • 1/4  cup 
    reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1   teaspoon 
    sea salt, divided
  • 2   cups 
    shredded coleslaw blend
  • 16   
    avocado slices (about 2 small avocados)
  • 8   
    corn tortillas
  • 2   
    limes, cut in half
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Combine lime juice, cilantro, oil and red snapper in large zip top bag; marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
For creamy salsa verde, combine salsa and mayonnaise in mini food processor or blender. Puree until smooth.
Remove fish from marinade, season with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and place on hot grill. Grill fish for 6 minutes on each side and remove. Let rest several minutes then flake fish with fork.
Place lime halves on grill, flesh side down, along with tortillas for 1 minute or until limes are grill marked and one side of tortillas are toasted. Remove and bend tortillas, toasted side out, into taco-shape.
Fill each tortilla with 1/4 cup slaw and 2 slices avocado. Divide fish evenly among tacos and drizzle each with 1 tablespoon sauce. Sprinkle with remaining sea salt and serve with grilled lime half.
Prep options

The weather outdoors is not always appropriate for outdoor grilling; use an indoor grill or simply broil, bake or pan-fry the fish. The corn tortillas can easily be toasted in a dry saute pan or hot oven and the limes could be caramelized using a smoking-hot skillet.
