Fish tacos are my new favorite thing, lighter and healthier than beef tacos smothered in cheese. Try adding tomatoes, green onions and chopped jalapeno on top. —Deb Perry, Traverse City, Michigan

"This was a nice way to change-up our ho-hum fish dinners at home. The flavors came through nicely, and it was easy to make. I didn't have lime juice on hand, so I substituted for lemon juice, which didn't affect the taste a bit."

"These tacos made a quick and tasty meal. I added chopped green onion to the coleslaw mix instead of using as a garnish. The guacamole was different but very good. Added a little bit of red pepper to the fish. Garnished with chopped tomatoes. Not only was it delicious but it tasted very fresh and felt quite healthy!"
