MMMMM... I can't wait to share my review on this. For anyone that's never had Fish Tacos before and ya like fish...you'll love this stuff. I had my reservations at first the whole idea of a fish inside a taco seemed wierd. Now...the thought of never having the chance to eat one would be sad. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
