Tony's Fish Taco's

1lb Mahi-Mahi fresh skin on
12 Corn tortillas 10"
2C Shredded cabbage (I like a combination of red and green)
1C Mayonnaise or Lite Mayonnaise
2pcs Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce finely chopped
1T Lime Fresh Squeezed
1T Cilantro chopped
1T Kosher Salt
1/2T Black Pepper freshly ground
1T Chili Powder
1/2T Garlic Powder
6 lime wedges
2 Avocadoes diced

In a large bowl or food processor combine mayonnaise, chipotles, cilantro and lime, blend thoroughly then toss with shredded cabbage until lightly coated, set aside. In a bowl combine salt, pepper, chili powder and garlic powder, mix and liberally sprinkle on fish. Lightly spray tortillas on both sides with non stick spray. On a medium hot grill, place fish skin side down and grill 4 minutes, turn, grill approximately another 4 minutes or until done and remove. Then toast tortillas 1 minute per side remove (do not let get too crispy). Remove skin from fish and cut into long 1/2" wide long strips. Place fish in grilled tortilla, top with slaw, finish with diced avocado, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.
