This is pretty good, but it's better with a few minor changes. First, season the fish with a little salt, pepper, onion powder, cumin, and garlic powder in addition to the chili powder. This brings out the fish flavor nicely. Remember it's a fish taco. You should taste the fish. Next, the 1/4 cup of salsa that is mixed with the cabbage to make the slaw is enough. Adding extra salsa later will completely overpower the fish. Also, not too much cheese. You only need a little bit, if any at all, too much will again overpower the fish flavor. Only other thing I can add is to make sure the tortillas are hot. The total flavors just seemed to pop out better when they're really warm. Lastly Don't use any cheap, flavorless, nasty fish like tilapia. For the love of life, use good fish. It makes a world of difference.

I have been making my fish tacos similar to this for years! I do it a little different though. First I make like a coleslaw with red & green cabbage, minced jalapeno, minced cilantro & shredded carrot, then I mix the salsa and sour cream in with a dash of lime juice. I bake my fish and I sprinkle it with chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, a pinch of cayenne & salt, all to taste. Serve it with a little reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend and wrapped in a warmed corn tortilla.

Great, I did tweeck this a bit as I go with what I have available. I used mango salsa, low carb tortillas, skipped the sour cream used halibut frozen fish filets and chopped them after I cooked them. no coleslaw mix or chili powder. They were great had them two nights in a row.
