Tilapia Tacos with Sesame Ginger Sauce

Taco Tuesdays are a must for family dinners on a weeknight: a quick DIY meal that is fun to assemble, easy to customize, and totally kid-friendly. These nutritious fish tacos come together with ease, packed with flavor for a light dinner or lunch. Top your tacos with a simple slaw tossed in a 5-ingredient dressing. Clean-up is easy: all you need is a pan to fry the tilapia, a cutting board for the veggies, a tiny bowl for the dressing, and a bowl to toss the slaw.
