Bestselling cookbook author Daphne Oz is joining the TODAY Food team to share her favorite healthy summer recipe.

She shows us how to make fresh fish tacos with creamy chipotle coleslaw, plus a simple citrusy cocktail to serve alongside.

"This is the homemade version of the kind of comfort food I love," says Oz. These tacos are filling but won't weigh you down. Feel free to add guacamole and salsa for extra deliciousness."

Citrus Sparkler

"A tequila cocktail is the perfect accompaniment for crunchy fish tacos," she says. "This one features fresh citrus juices and sweet agave to compliment the creamy texture and spicy flavor of the slaw."
