Cajun Fish Tacos

Classic fish tacos often feature deep-fried fish, a corn tortilla, cabbage and a thin mayo-based sauce. But we found that fish + pita bread = total yumminess in this streamlined version using lemon-flavored fish with a Cajun twist. —Simple & Delicious Test Kitchen

    I've been on a "fish taco kick" lately and this was a nice change from my usual version. I didn't have pita bread but I did have flat bread and that worked just as well. I think this would make a great pita pocket sandwich too.
