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.
