5 Tbsp fresh lime juice, divided (2 limes should be about right)
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
2 Tbsp Tequila
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp of your favorite seasoning
1 lb. Fresh white fish of your choice (Cod, Haddock, Halibut or Grouper)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp 1/2 & 1/2 or cream
Six flour tortillas (7″”- 8″” work best)
2 avocados, peeled, pitted, thinly sliced
3 cups finely sliced Napa cabbage
Salsa of your choice
Rub fish on all sides with your favorite seasoning and place in glass baking dish.
In small bowl, combine 3 Tbsp lime juice, scallions, 1/4 cup cilantro, Tequila and oil.
Spoon this mixture over fish; cover and chill for 15 minutes.
Whisk mayonnaise, 1/2 & 1/2, 1/4 cup cilantro and remaining 2 Tbsp lime juice together in small bowl.

Break fish up into bite size pieces.
