  1. Mix rub spices together and rub evenly over the sides of the fish and set aside.
  2. In a skillet or grill pan, heat cooking oil on medium high heat. Place fish into hot pan and sear for 4 minutes one side, flip and sear for 6 minutes on the other side. Cover with the lid with the heat turned off for another 4 minutes. Depending on the thickness of your fish and the heat, you may need to reduce searing time and reduce stove temp to avoid burning. The fish should be cooked through, flaky and juicy, not dried out.
  3. In a small bowl, mix sauce ingredients together and set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix coleslaw ingredients together and set aside.
  5. Using a fork, flake the fish into chunks for the tacos. Set tortilla's, coleslaw, fish and sauce on the table for your dinner guests to make tacos with the ingredients and enjoy!
