Reviews for Southwest Fish Tacos
"Very, very good!"
"Pretty good, the seasoning came off when I was cooking the fish so it didn't have a "southwest" flavor. I added some lime juice to the fish. I also substituted broccoli slaw for cole slaw since we don't like cabbage."
"Easy to make and very tasty"
"Loved it! Super easy, I used Mahi Mahi and topped with avocado. Also, shredded a small head of cabbage for the slaw."
"I would omit the cilantro. I used coleslaw dressing and then Tartar sauce."
"Very easy and tasty. I also left out the butter and put fresh avocados on top. Will definitely make again but will use flour tortillas instead. I used corn but thought it took too much away from the flavor."
"Very good - I added cheese and tomatoes - I will make these again."
"These tacos are delish! Instead of cooking the fish myself, I used frozen crunchy cod nuggets and put the 1 T. of taco seasoning into the coleslaw mixture. Left out the cilantro cuz I hate it, and served chopped tomatoes, salsa, and Mexican blend cheese as garnishes. These are terrific with the Best Ever Chicken Fajita Chowder from this website."
"Loved this recipe! I did add some southwest seasoning along with the taco seasoning for more flavor and used a non stick pan so cut the butter to 1-2 tablespoons. The slaw was also great with chicken."
"<p>I used shrimp instead of the fish and served in flour tortillas, loved it--can't wait to make this again.</p>"
"Best recipe for fish tacos! Quick and easy, thank you! Loved them!"
"This recipe was delicious. It has a very fresh taste. Perfect for the summer. I made some small changes. I used Haddock instead of Sole and I used EVOO instead of butter. I also used a kit for the coleslaw which eliminated the mayo. My husband loved it. I will definitly make it again!"
"Great! Used tilapia instead of sole b/c that was on sale and turned out good! I might have used more than a tablespoon of taco seasoning...I just sprinkled it on until it was completely covered."
"I liked the coleslaw mixture. But, I wasn't to crazy about the fish, it seemed bland. I added salt and more taco seasoning to try and give it more flavor."
