    WiGal's Note:

    From Cooking Light. Son, DIL, and 4 year old gs recommended so fixed it myself. Loved the salsa! GS eats it w/o the jalapeno in salsa. Serve with coleslaw and black beans or rice. Shh... cheat and make it with ground cumin and cilantro that comes in a tube. Think if you wanted a stronger taste, you could apply rub earlier. Might be good on shrimp.

      I chose this recipe because it seemed to be full of the kind of flavours we enjoy and because it was fast to make and required minimal cooking (it's 104F here today!). I chose a winner! Doubled the recipe to feed my brood. The cumin comes out strong on the fish, but is subsequently tamed to a lovely hum with the bright salsa. Not only did the tacos taste delicious - they were gorgeous to look at, too! Thanks for a winner.

      Great flavor, we loved it. Make sure your spices are fresh for best taste, I know my cumin seeds weren't, I will make it again. Very refreshing, great summer dish! Thanks
