  1. Dry fish with a towel.
  2. Squeeze 1/2 a lime over fish.
  3. To a small bowl, add garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, 2 tbsp oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spoon mixture across all fish. Flip fish a few times to make sure both sides are coated.
  5. Place in fridge and let marinate for 30 minutes (can do 15 minutes if in a rush).
  6. While fish is marinating, make the slaw by combining cabbage, red onion, juice from 1 lime, cilantro, remaining oil, salt pepper in a bowl.
  7. Toss to combine.
  8. Set aside in fridge until ready.
  9. Brush grates of grill with oil and heat to 300-400 degrees.
  10. Cook 3 minutes each side, only flipping once. *Don't worry if fish breaks apart for this recipe.
  11. Remove from grill.
  12. Layer tortillas with avocado lime sauce, fish, slaw mixture, and mango salsa.
  13. Serve lime wedges with tacos.
  14. Enjoy!
