One of our favorites! Instead of sprinkling the seasoning on top I mix it in with the panko crumbs, I feel like that way it gets all over the fish better.

Yummy! I added purple cabbage for some extra texture

Not my favorite...I thought the sauce overpowered the fish, or maybe the seasoning just wasn't enough. Either way, this didn't go over well at my house :(

My husband and I loved this recipe we have tried a few other fish taco recipes and this one by far is the best....

I made this for dinner tonight w/dolphin fish my husband caught & served black bean salsa w/it. Everything was exceptionally delicious! :)

My son eats fish all the time - but, I only serve him really mild fish such as tilapia. His favorite is made by coating both sides heavily with lemon juice, sprinkling with garlic salt and pepper (or Emirils Fish Seasoning) and then putting fresh parm on top, broil for about 10ish minutes. So easy, so delicious, and it never gets turned down!!

These were ok. I didn't have Panko Crumbs so used regular bread crumbs. They were rather bland even with the sauce. Next time I will season the flour and maybe use some crushed pretzels.

Thanks Ida. Any tips for disguising the smell of fish when I serve it? The young ones turn their nose when I serve anything fishy. Fishes are so much healthier than sausages and beefs. Would appreciate any advice!!

Yes, You can! Those little Ritz crackers are a fine substitute, even the low salt kind.-Ida
