This is an adopted recipe. The description was written by the original chef. "Being from California, Fish tacos are a staple in our family and the kids ask for them all the time. Feel free to substitute any firm fish like Tilaplia, salmon, snapper etc. Adapted from original recipe from Bon Appétit."
