  2. Meanwhile, heat taco shells as directed on box.
  3. In large bowl, mix yogurt, lime peel, lime juice, sugar and salt. Stir in coleslaw mix, cilantro and jalapeño. Let stand 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon slightly less than 1/4 cup fish chunks and 1/4 cup coleslaw mixture into each taco shell; top each with about 1 tablespoon tomato.
