  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Rinse the tilapia under cool running water then place in a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, combine 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, salt, lime juice and chili powder, then pour marinade over the fish. Let stand for 10-15 minutes; the longer time will allow for increased flavor absorption.
  3. Lightly grease the bottom of a glass baking dish. Place the marinated tilapia in dish and cook at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until it flakes with a fork. While the fish is cooking, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet. Add onion and sauté until hot.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Warm taco shells according to the directions on the package.
  6. Cut each hot fish fillet into 6-8 pieces and place in warmed tortilla with slaw and desired fixings.
