"Good, but used different fish.Tilapia is farmed raise, and fed with human waste, and everything else that is disgusting, then sent to the US. Do your home work people."

"We used cod, flour tortillas and regular tortillas instead of what was originally stated in the recipe. These were delicious and very quick and easy to make. We will be sure to make these again!"

"Fast & delicious! Only thing I changed was to use flour tortillas since we did not have corn, and regular tartar since I didn't have fat-free. They were yummy! Will definitely make again."
