Spiced fish that is piled high with creamy slaw that is then topped with a divine avocado cream makes for awesome tacos.

The avocado cream was my favorite part of these tacos. It added so much great flavor and went brilliantly with the slaw and fish. The fresh flavors of these tacos and the pretty colors will help to brighten you day.

Tilapia is a great fish to work with and cooks up fast in a skillet with a little oil. The whole dinner was took so little to put together and my family raved over it.

Cooking, baking and entertaining have been a lifelong passion for me. I started at a very young age to bake and cook for my family. Even attempting many of Julia Child’s recipes as a young teenager and cooking meals for the family or for company. Now I love entertaining and celebrating the holidays. My husband Ken loves being in the kitchen creating right along with me. Our daughter has been doing cooking classes with me for a number of years and also enjoys everything that the kitchen has to offer.
