MY REVIEW

Delicious! He sauce makes this dish. I use tilapia and garnish with tomatoes, lettuce, black beans and corn...and plenty of the sauce. I've already made it a couple times and will be making it again soon.

MY REVIEW

I appreciated the simplicity of this recipe. As a beginner cook, it was wonderful to put such a beautiful meal together so quickly!

However, I wasn't a huge fan of the sour cream + taco seasoning sauce. Not quite right. I'd like to figure out another way to make a seasoned sour cream topping.

We really liked this! We didn't put the sour cream/mayo stuff on it. Just did the lemon/taco seasoning fish as directed and then used a coleslaw mix (with no dressing) and fresh diced tomatoes on it. Paired it with yellow rice and black beans and also had fajita veggies which I liked with the fish as well (ate two different tacos - one with veggies, one without). Even my picky seven year old ate it although he ate it on a whole wheat hot dog roll.
