Easy Fish Tacos with Mango-Pineapple Slaw

Rating: 4 stars 62
I used to make these easy fish tacos all the time in California, and they are so easy and fresh! You can also omit the mayonnaise and increase the red vinegar to reduce calories in the mango slaw. All in all, these are a great main dish for any time of year! We usually serve them with fat-free refried beans topped with cilantro and goat cheese or a cold corn salad with chopped bell pepper and onion.

I came up with this recipe when I couldn't find good directions for grilled fish tacos. I liked the chipotle-lime combination in a dip I once tried so I imitated it here. Choose toppings to suit your taste, or include typical accompaniments such as salsa fresca, cabbage, a squeeze of lime juice, and chopped cilantro.
