Reviews for Citrus Fish Tacos
"I want to give this 3.5 stars. I followed the recipe, other than using canned pineapple, and it was good. My corn tortillas kept falling apart so we switched to crunchy taco shells. My kids both liked the fish and the salsa (minus the jalape?o) while my husband and I thought the salsa too sweet. We both added some red onion, jalape?o, and Sriracha sauce, but I wouldn't put this on my regular rotation. I liked that it was fairly easy and I would probably make it again for the kids."
"This was pretty good. I added fresh chopped cilantro to the pineapple salsa."
