Not my favorite...I thought the sauce overpowered the fish, or maybe the seasoning just wasn't enough. Either way, this didn't go over well at my house :(

My husband and I loved this recipe we have tried a few other fish taco recipes and this one by far is the best....

I made this for dinner tonight w/dolphin fish my husband caught & served black bean salsa w/it. Everything was exceptionally delicious! :)

MY REVIEW

My son eats fish all the time - but, I only serve him really mild fish such as tilapia. His favorite is made by coating both sides heavily with lemon juice, sprinkling with garlic salt and pepper (or Emirils Fish Seasoning) and then putting fresh parm on top, broil for about 10ish minutes. So easy, so delicious, and it never gets turned down!!
