Delicious! I served these with the Pineapple Salsa and tortilla chips on the same page.

My family really likes these tacos. I used broccoli slaw rather than coleslaw mix.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2011

Way too lemon pepper. We didn't care for the flavour at all. My husband's finished the meal and said "hmmm, there's not too many things I don't like."

MY REVIEW

Family favorite! We've made this recipe dozens of times. Healthy and delicious. Sometimes I will place the breaded fish on a baking sheet and bake at 400 until the fish is cooked. It gives me time to assemble the rest of the ingredients while the fish is baking.
