  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place the fillets in a 3-quart baking dish and brush both sides of the fish with the oil. Season fish with the chipotle seasoning blend. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes per ½-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the coleslaw mix and dressing; set aside.
  3. Flake the fish into large chunks and divide between the tortillas. Top each with ¼ cup of the coleslaw mixture, avocado, cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime.
