1) Combine yogurt, lime juice, cabbage, cilantro,
garlic, serrano chili, scallions and tomatoes into
a large bowl and mix thorougly. Set aside.
2) Season both sides of the tilapia filets with salt,
pepper and paprika.
3) Heat oil in a large pan and cook your fish for 3-4
minutes per side.

I tried it for my mexican nite theme! the fish turned out great, but unfortunately the slaw took over the taco, couldnt even tell where the fish went :-( next time, i am going to put less of slaw on it. Otherwise, quick and easy.
