    JanuaryBride's Note:

    I just love the achiote seasoning found in the fish tacos in the Yucatan, so I decided to venture out and try to make the fish myself. . .success! Very simple too. I suggest serving with a squeeze of lime, a few slices of avocado and cilantro as a garnish. Adapted from a Ritz Carlton recipe in which they use this sauce to marinate whole red snappers.
