Fish Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Jalapeño-Lime Aioli

I loved everything about these tacos! Grilled fish topped with a creamy sauce and covered with a crunchy cabbage slaw was perfection in every bite, and luckily there was enough for leftovers!

For the Jalapeño-Lime Aioli: In a food processor, puree the garlic, egg yolks, lime juice and zest, and a pinch of salt. With the processor running, slowly drizzle in the oils until the mixture emulsifies. Stir in the jalapeño. Adjust seasoning to taste.
