It's my day off and I'm making tacos!

I'm taking the day off therefore my family will get feed tonight.  
Last year Mr. Ace had mentioned that he would like fish tacos one night for dinner, I thought, "what?" that was so out of my cooking expertise.   But I took the challenge, started hunting through my books, and found this recipe which is now a family favorite and HUGE hit!

Where can I find it?

What does b* say?
Of all my cook books this is one I cook out of a lot!  It has many simple and delicious recipes and hands down the easiest and most yummy fish tacos!

Recipe follows:
¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

coarse salt and ground pepper

¼ small red cabbage, thinly shredded (about 2 ½ cups)

4 scallions, thinly sliced (about ½ cup)

1 jalapeno chile, halved lengthwise, one half minced

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound tilapia fillets (or other firm white fish), cut into 16 equal strips

8 flour tortillas (6-inch)

½ cup fresh cilantro leaves

Red-Cabbage Slaw

½ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 small red cabbage (1 ½ pounds)

2 medium Granny Smith apples

coarse salt and ground pepper

Serves 4
The creamy red cabbage slaw can also be served on sandwiches or as a side dish.

In a large bowl, combine sour cream and lime juice; season with salt and pepper. Transfer half the mixture to another container; set aside for serving. Toss cabbage, scallions, and minced jalapeno with remaining sour-cream mixture. Season again with salt and pepper.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil and remaining jalapeno half over medium-high heat; swirl to coat bottom of pan. Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper. In two batches (starting with larger pieces), cook fish until golden brown on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes. Discard jalapeno.

Meanwhile, warm tortillas according to package instructions (or over a burner; see below).

To make tacos, fill tortillas with slaw, fish, and fresh cilantro leaves. Drizzle with reserved sour-cream mixture. Serve immediately.
