  • Combine Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, onion, vinegar, cilantro, hot sauce, salt, and ancho chile powder in a bowl. Stir in shredded cabbage to make the slaw.

  • Place tilapia fillets on the prepared baking pan. Squeeze lime juice over fish. Combine cumin, paprika, salt, and garlic powder in another bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture over the fish.

  • Bake under the preheated broiler until fish flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Place tortillas between 2 damp paper towels. Warm in the microwave, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Spoon the cooked tilapia onto each tortilla and top with the slaw.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any whitefish in place of the tilapia.

Use any size tortillas you prefer.

Sour cream can be substituted for the Greek yogurt.
