Absolutely delicious and very refreshing! I thought the slaw recipe sounded interesting, especially since there was no dressing. I decided to give it a try, and it was a wonderful blend with the flavors of the fish. I did make it a day ahead so the flavors could meld together. I did not have red or green cabbage, so I substituted broccoli slaw as the base for the slaw, and it was great.
