Chili-Lime Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw

I love fish tacos. It's rare to feel like you're eating healthy while eating Mexican food here in the U.S., but fish tacos do just that. Lightly marinated with lime juice and spices and topped with a crunchy, sweet and sour red cabbage slaw, these tacos are bursting with fresh flavor! Served with yellow rice and a quick saute of corn, onions, and red pepper, this is one delcious good-for-you dinner!
