I found this recipe on the net and decided to share it with all of you. Fish tacos are very popular in the San Diego area. I serve these with Spanish rice or tortilla chips.

If I could give this 6 stars I would! I lived in San Diego for 2 years and while there fell in love with Rubio's fish tacos. Now I've been gone for 7 years and have craved them at times, so when it came time to create a Mexican Fiesta for a dinner party, I knew I had to add fish tacos to the menu. This recipe is IDENTICAL to the fish tacos I remember at Rubio's and now I can enjoy them anytime I want and don't have to spend thousands on a plane ticket to do so! My guests were amazed and everyone LOVED them. I really didn't change anything in the recipe. Every component is simple in itself but when combined, command your taste buds to attention! Thank you for posting!
