    This is a great “basic” recipe. I adjusted by marinating the fish in the spices and lime juice and a little canola oil. Worked very well. Will make it again.

    Great served with corn kernels and thin sliced cabbage. I’ve tried both sauces... we prefer the one made w Greek Jogurt

    First fish tacos I have ever made and they were pretty good. I would also suggest there be a more defined amount of fish since fish varies vastly in size. So instead maybe 4-5oz cods etc. Lastly I went by the yummly ingredient list for my grocery list but when I printed the directions to make the fish I found I was missing an ingredient. Smoked Paprika is not on the ingredient list here only when you print it does it show up. Oh and the printed recipe is missing the tomatoes as well as lime juice. Lastly there is a discrepancy on the calorie info online vs. printed, so nutritional info might be off as well. So bottom line I had too much fish and no smoked paprika so maybe a 5 star recipe😊

    Really good. Added a little bit of cayenne to one side of the fish for a little extra kick.

    This meal was so simple and super delicious. I just bought a bag of coleslaw mix instead of chopping the cabbage.

    delicious! and my kids ate it too! It is a little spicy though so any kids that dont like spicy may not he happy with as much chili pepper. I used Sole...the cheapest white dish the store had at the time. no bones were in it. it worked out great!
