Place coconut milk, sugar, chile, lemon zest and juice, orange zest and juice, guajillo sauce, bay leaf, and garlic in a large heavy-bottomed saucepot. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature to a simmer and let liquid reduce for 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper.
Add fish to liquid and let simmer until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
Transfer fish using a slotted spoon to tortillas, dividing fish evenly between each. Spoon Yucatan salsa on top of fish; serve immediately with avocado slices and lime wedges.
