Today we have our food contributor extraordinaire Amanda Franklin showing us how to make fish tacos with a red cabbage mango slaw. I tried one of these tacos and loved it so much I ended up making them again the following week. This recipe is great if you need a quick, healthy, and easy weekday recipe. But it's also a great choice if you are entertaining in the summer months.

3 limes, juiced

1. Preheat broiler. Mix all marinade ingredients. Cover halibut filets with marinade for 20 minutes.
2. While the fish is marinating, prepare the slaw by thoroughly mixing together all ingredients.
3. On a foil lined baking sheet, place fish and marinade. Depending on thickness, broil for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
