Season fish with cumin, coriander, paprika, red pepper & garlic powder, place on hot grill for 4 -5 minutes on each side (depending on thickness). Make sure that you spray your grill with Pam or similar product. Once fish is cooked through warm the tortillas in the microwave. Cut fish lengthwise and place in tortillas. Put about 1/2 c cabbage on top of fish, then 1 tbsp of the cilantro sauce on the cabbage.
