To make the tacos

In a small bowl, stir together cumin, coriander, paprika, red pepper, salt and granulated garlic. Evenly scatter spices over both sides of the fillets. Set fish on a baking sheet lightly coated with nonstick spray.

Bake until fish flakes easily when tested - about 7-10 minutes. Remove and let cool slightly. Use a fork to break the fish into chunky pieces. Evenly divide fish among tortillas - top each evenly with romaine and crema.
