  5. Use a fork to break fish into bite-sized pieces. Serve fish on top of salad with lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!

Loved it. Great flavor combinations. Would have halved the coleslaw and doubled the sriracha mayo.

I used broccoli slaw mix instead of cole slaw mix. All in all, we liked it, but I found the flavor surprisingly mild. I'd probably jazz them up even more somehow if I repeated it.

Quick and easy and tasty. Used rockfish because I had it, added avocado because I had it and added a bit more sriracha to give it more kick. Had cauliflower on the side (leftovers from the lentil tacos made earlier this week)
