Grilled Catfish Tacos with Guacamole and American Slaw

I have been running low on time this week and in "super busy mom mode"...so tacos have been the go to the past couple of days. These actually turned out quite delicious and did not take that long to make.

Here is how:
1. To make the slaw:
    a. Take 2 cups of coleslaw mix and add:
- 1/2 medium red onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
- 2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

2. To make the guacamole:
    a. In a medium bowl combine the following in a food processor:
- 2 ripe Hass avocados, mashed
- 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

3. Lightly spray 1 pound of catfish fillets with cooking spray and season them with chili powder (make sure it is a gluten free blend), salt and pepper.

4. Grill the fish over direct high heat until the fish begins to flake with the tip of a knife (about 6-8 minutes), turning once. Remove from the grill.

5. Heat 8 corn tortillas over direct high heat for about 20 seconds per side. Wrap them in a kitchen towel to keep warm.

6. For each taco, layer a warm tortilla with fish, slaw and guacamole. I added a little Sriracha sauce for some heat as well.

Here is to nutrition with flavor! xo
