Reviews for Lime Fish Tacos
"This was my first attempt at fish tacos & they turned out delicious. The lime flavor in the sauce was just right. I used tilapia, since I knew that I like that kind of fish. I also like my fat so I didn't use fat-free ingredients."
"Easy, simple and delicious. Will definitely make these again!"
"Lime Fish Tacos were my families first taste of fish tacos and this recipe has become one of our favorites. Quick and easy to prepare with not a morsel left in the pan."
