Man, these were terrific! I made them with homemade corn tortillas for fish tacos. I used tilapia for the fish. and for the sauce I used old bay for the Cajun spice. Added the salt right to the flour mixture. Used lemon for the lime. Didn't have pumpkin seeds, so I used a bit of pumpkin pie spice. Not substantial changes, just used what was on hand. The sauce and use of panko really made the fish pop! Thanks for sharing a keeper recipe.
