1. Heat grill to high. When hot, brush grill bars and rub lightly with oil. Lay fish slices on a platter and brush with olive oil on both sides. Season each side with salt and pepper. Lay fish slices on the prepared grill and cook 2 to 3 minutes. The fish should just be cooked through and opaque. Place fish onto a warm platter and cover.
2. Quickly grill both sides of the tortillas and place in a tortilla warmer or a bowl covered with a towel.
3. Place 1 or 2 pieces of fish on a tortilla. Top with shredded cabbage, tomato, lime wedges, and cilantro-chile sauce and hot sauce on the side.
