ellie_ , you have a winner here. Not a fan of fish, but a great fan of tacos. Another reviewer pointed the way...and I found peace for fish. This was excellent. I didn't change anything...except I grilled inside. That's it. The sauce. Excellent. The salad/compote? Excellent! The fish...oh I wish I could swim like a fish. You have a won on this recipe, ellie! Keep it up! Loved, loved, loved.

This recipe is going into my best of the best file! I loved these fish tacos. I was a bit skeptical, too. I normally top my fish tacos with a slaw and avocado. I ended up loving the cucumber relish. It worked so well with the mayo/sour cream mixture and the salsa with serrano peppers. By the way, I loved the serrano pepper added to the salsa - it made such a difference! Also, I don't normally care for corn tortillas but grilling them made all the difference in the world. They were awesome here. I only made one change, I used tilapia. Thank you for a fabulous recipe!

Awesome recipe. I only gave it 4 stars because I didnt stick to the recipe. I put my own spin on things like using Tilapia, and instead of just using chili powder, I also used taco seasoning, then baked it in the oven @400 for 5-7 mins. Now with my dressing, I added a little dill (cause it goes great with fish) and garlic powder just because I love it. And with my relish, well it really wasn't a relish. I just chopped up a cucumber, a tomato, red onion, avocado, lettuce and kept it all on the side so that my family could pick and choose what they wanted to put on the taco(which by the way I used muli grain wraps)Oh and I didn't use any salsa cause we didn't have any in the house. Over all it came out fantastic. If i never saw this recipe I would never have been able to figure out a yummy way to put one of these together,Thanks for posting it. Defiantly a keeper
