    This was fantastic. I used rockfish which really came out well in the pan. I used a chipotle mayonnaise mixed with lime juice and a fresh salsa as garnish

    Great. The corn tortilla is not recommend since it falls apart. My husband needs GF. The hard shells would be better fur us. A little more prep than i wanted, but it turned out fantastic.

    pretty amazing recipe if i do say so myself. a spicy fried batter would have taken it over the top.

    Very flavorful! I added some Spanish rice as a side and it was the perfect meal.

    Turned into burritos because I only had flour tortillas. I put the filets in whole. They were delicious!!

    Good! I substituted thinly sliced red bell peppers for the cabbage and quickly sautéed them. Skipped the cojita bc I didn’t have it and added more lime juice.

    We made this with grilled cod. Since we like spicy food sub’ed smoked paprika and chipotle powder. Yum!

    It was easy and a big hit. We used feta since we didn’t have cotija cheese.
