Crispy Fish Tacos

1 C Crema (Mexican cream, like Cacique)
1/3 C mayonnaise
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 tsp garlic powder
1 lime -- 1/2 squeezed for lime juice, 1/2 cut into wedges
24-32 Fish sticks (Gortons, Van de Kamps, etc., 3-4 per taco)
8 Soft Tacos (small or medium flour tortillas)
Medium or Hot Salsa (fresh is best, not in jars)
pre-cut cole slaw (shredded cabbage)
shredded cheddar cheese

Crema sauce
Combine crema, mayo, chili powder, cumin, honey, salt and lime juice in a bowl. Whisk until well-blended. Place in an air-tight container and refrigerate.

Line cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Lay fish sticks out on pan, 3-4 per taco, depending on the size of the sticks.  Lightly sprinkle fish sticks with garlic powder.  Heat them up according to instructions on the package until they're very crispy. When sticks are nearly done, heat up tortillas: lay a damp paper towel on them and microwave for about a minute until warm. Assemble tacos with tortilla and fish sticks; garnish with cheese, salsa, crema sauce and shredded cabbage. If desired, squeeze a lime wedge over tacos. Enjoy!

Serves 4; 2 tacos per person. (If making for less than 4, leftover crema can be refrigerated and used up to a week after.)
