Pat fish dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside. Meanwhile, make slaw by combining cilantro, green cabbage, red onion, the juice of 1 lime, 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Toss slaw and set aside.
Preheat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add fish and reduce heat to medium. Pan fry fish for 4-5 minutes on each side, depending on thickness of filet, or until opaque and flaky. Remove fish from heat. Let fish cool slightly then flake and place in a bowl.
Heat tortillas, wrapped in a clean kitchen towel, for 30 seconds in the microwave. Place tortillas on a plate. Assemble tacos by laying tortillas with fish, cilantro slaw, avocado, cheddar cheese and salsa. Serve with plain yogurt, lime wedges and additional salsa.
