    Excellent recipe! This is so fresh-tasting and different. Use with my Chili Mayo (see in my recipes).

      My Aunt and I just went to a cooking class and this was one of the recipes that they prepared. I was going to post the recipe since it was so good, but then I found it posted here. We used Red Snapper which I had never had before, but what a nice tasting fish it was. We also did the Chipotle mayonnaise and it was excellent with the fish. This is just a fantastic recipe!

      This is a perfectly simple recipe that has great flavor. The chili mayo really makes the tacos. I only had regular cabbage on hand, and tossed it with some of the mayo and additional lime juice to make a coleslaw that we piled on the tacos. Hubby added extra drizzles of the chili mayo for more kick. Simple and flavorful are always winners in our home. Thanks for posting.

      The fish I chose to use for this recipe was Cod & Basa...both were delicious. Instead of the chilli mayonnaise, I used store bought Jalapeno yogurt dip.
