Directions:

 

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange fish nuggets on a baking sheet. Bake 15-17 minutes, flipping halfway through. 
  2. Meanwhile, prepare slaw. Add coleslaw mix to bowl. Thinly slice 2 scallions, mince a ½ cup of cilantro leaves and stems, and dice 2 seeded jalapeños. Add to slaw. To make dressing, whisk together 3 tbsp. olive oil, 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice (from 2 small limes or 1 large lime), 1 tsp. maple syrup, ½ tsp. cumin, salt and pepper. Add to slaw and toss to coat. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix ½ cup crème fraîche with 1 tbsp. lime juice. 
  4. Prepare garnishes. Halve, core, and slice avocado into ten wedges. Thinly slice remaining jalapeño (leave seeds in for a pop of heat). Quarter remaining limes.
  5. Remove fish nuggets from oven. Break each nugget in half with a fork.
  6. Place tortillas on a baking sheet and heat in oven for 2-3 minutes (until warm).
  7. Assemble tacos! Layer slaw, an avocado slice, and fish in each tortilla. Drizzle with crème fraîche and desired garnishes. Serve with a lime wedge!
