Dinner: Swordfish Tacos

I made swordfish tacos last week for dinner is celebration of the summer-like weather. Tacos are great year round, however, I like to grill the swordfish outside and the dish is light and perfect for warm temperatures. (When it's cold, I saute fish and do this dish inside.)

I love this recipe...feel free to use all or some of the vegetables in the slaw--it's meant to be flexible. The chipolte  sauce is delicious and works really well in this dish.
