1/2 cup chopped peeled avocado
5 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons chopped green onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
3 teaspoons minced jalapeņo chilies with seeds
1 pound catfish fillets
2 garlic cloves -- minced
4 corn or flour tortillas - (5" to 6" dia)
2 cups thinly-sliced curly leaf lettuce
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix tomatoes, avocado, 2 tablespoons lime juice, onion, cilantro, and 2 teaspoons jalapeņos in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.


Place fish in single layer on small rimmed baking sheet. Mix garlic, 3 tablespoons lime juice, and 1 teaspoon jalapeņos in another small bowl. Drizzle half of lime juice mixture over fish; reserve remainder. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper; let stand 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil, enclosing completely. Place in oven until heated through, about 15 minutes.
